You know you’re a homeschooler when…
I am struggling to meet a deadline this morning. Directly across from me is a 10 year old Abraham Lincoln working out the last details of a first-person speech for his Monday’s American History Co-op class.
It isn’t a distraction.
Not at all.
At least his report isn’t on Davy Crockett, because then he’d have on a coonskin hat.
I have a running joke with my friend Cindy that you know you’re a homeschooler when your kid wears a coonskin hat….anywhere. No matter where we are, we will take, and then text, photos of kids in coonskin hats with the single word, “Homeschooler” beneath the image.
Silly inside jokes among friends make the world go’round, yes?
The kids and I plan to do back-to-school clothes shopping today (I know, I know…we’re behind the curve). As I wrapped up and headed to the shower, I heard Emelie and Kenny discuss whether he should wear his Abe Lincoln hat and beard at the mall.
Then I took a photo and sent it to Cindy.
