In my last post, I shared with you some of my favourite things about homeschooling. I talked about the time I get to spend with my kids, all the lovely books, the joy of learning alongside my girls, the warm and fuzzies I get from watching them together all day long and the freedom of doing what we want, when we want.
Today, I’m going to share with you the answers given to me by my 8 year old when posed the same question: What are your favourite things about homeschooling? Warning: these answers are a little less sentimental and may also lack any depth of thought! Here are the simple and honest answers of my third grader (edited for spelling of course!):
- I get to stay home.
- I have more time to play.
- I don’t have to worry about packing a lunch.
- I don’t have to worry about being late.
- I get to go to home school groups.
So there you have it! Interpret it how you wish — I’m sure one of those reasons secretly means “I’m so glad I get to spend all day with my mommy, she’s so awesome and I just love her so much”. Maybe the first one?
What would your children say are their favourite things about being homeschooled?
