“You should homeschool the boys.”
I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve heard that over the last few years. And with TK starting high school tomorrow, I’ll admit I gave it a passing thought.
Very passing. As in blowing by a Buick on a blind corner kinda passing.
The top three reasons there won’t be any homeschooling at Casa Stacey:
#3: Surviving high school is a necessary skill. And the social aspect is incredibly important. Yes, I know many families who homeschool and their lives are a social whirl—there are sports and field trips and extracurricular activities. I, however, am an extreme introvert and if my children didn’t leave the house to go to school they’d know maybe six people.
#2: My children are smarter than me.
#1: Fortunately for the future of my children, I’m a pretty self-aware person and I always put off until tomorrow what I should have done yesterday. Discipline? HA!
SK finished second grade on June 18th, and before the end of school he received his book assignment on which to base his summer reading project, as well as a calendar of math activities. Third grade starts tomorrow.
Guess what we’re doing today?
Every. Single. Year.
