It would be too tiring to go to school...and the other reasons my kids think we homeschool

This weeks blog criuse is a great one. it is kids answer week. 

So, I am going to ask my kids the given questions and let them respond in their own words. 

Here goes:

1. Why does your family homeschool?

Daughter(13): Because the influences at school, the school environment, we can learn more at home than we could at school, the schools teach evolution and stuff that's not right, and they do not teach Christian morals, and the Bible tells parents to teach their children.

Son(6): Because they don't want us to go away for a really long time, because they love us, because they don't want to have to drive us there and back and there and back, and it is really tiring.

2. What is your favorite part of homeschooling?

Daughter (13): you don't have to wake up early in the morning, and you can do school in you pj's, you get to use whatever curriculum you want and you are not rushed.

Son(6): You can learn what you want to, I get to be with mamma, and you teach me, and i don't have to get dressed.  

3. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Daughter(13): A mom, an author, and a vet to my own animals on my farm and maybe a small town vet where I can still be home with my kids. A horse a dog breeder.

Son(6): Like dad and working

OK, so you can see the differences in a 13 year old and a 6 year old, can't you?

My son's answers are so funny! 

This was a good question. I can't wait to read everyone elses.

Love the responses! My 13 year old son went for the 'grunt' approach to a response. Maybe it's a boy thing?


"The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not." --Thomas Jefferson
Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
