What homeschooling is all about

Caution: dissection pictures included. Not for squeamish!!!

There is nothing sweeter than seeing your teenage son sit with his little sister listening to her read.
When your kids go to school you miss out on fun things like dissecting frogs, worms, fish, and grasshoppers.

Even the little pipsqueak likes to learn.

Someday he is going to be quite the starving artist!!!

I love how the older kids love to "teach" the younger ones. It is great for them too since it helps to re-enforce what they have already learned.

The #1 thing I have learned being a homeschooling mom: The best way to learn math is snuggled on the couch with your big brother.
It doesn't get any better than this!

The not me monster strikes again

This is what happens when you ask a 13 year old boy to take out the trash. Apparently it is too much to ask that one put on shoes before going outside to take out the trash. It is finally warming up here in Alaska and the ground is muddy.
I can't wait until the snow is gone and the ground is dry. Then I am going to have my carpets cleaned. They certainly need it with this kid.
