It's been two and a half years since we embarked on this journey called homeschooling. While I have found that most people have been supportive, we still have some family members that just don't get this whole "homeschooling business."
We've been told to send our kids to "real" school. We will, most likely, one day. But for now, we strongly believe this is what is right for our family.
We've heard lots of reasons to not homeschool, but the one that slays me is, "you're wasting your tax dollars by not utilizing what you've helped pay for: public school."
Just because we don't use the Sheriff's department or the fire department every week doesn't mean we are wasting our tax dollars, does it? It leaves me wondering if they utilize the public library, public museums, or public parks on a regular basis. Hmm...
I'm not angry. I just get a wee bit frustrated when others judge our decision. (Click here to see a post about why we chose to homeschool; and click here to read about moms judging each other.)
This morning a dear friend posted this video on Facebook and it made me laugh.
Whether you're a homeschool family or not, I think you'll find it amusing.
And yes, I am still in my pajamas! :)
