Homeschool doesn't have to look like school...

Bible and History lessons on the couch.
Discussions in the car.
Math fact memorization in the kitchen while on the computer.
Writing skills sharpened while writing the daily newspaper for the imaginary town built in back of the house.
Art class in your bedroom while listening to books on tape.
Science behind the house when we discover a hummingbird and her nest with two perfect jelly bean eggs.
Home economics when you sew beads onto your shirt just because you feel like creating something beautiful.
Social skills when your 6 year old calls Petco to see if they offer grooming services for hamsters. (they don't)

This is to remind me on days when I feel like we didn't accomplish much and to inspire others that homeschooling offers a unique opportunity to create lifelong learners.
