You Know You're a Homeschooler When...

You Know You're a Homeschooler When...

You forget your booster doses.
You wake up at 12.30am for supper and do not have to worry about being late for school .
You get the entire skating rink on a school morning.
You read fairy tales in the airport at 9am on a weekday.
You wake up at 4.30am to pray and read your bible because you had a nightmare, then sleep in for the rest of the morning.
You can study one subject to your heart’s content without worrying about the school bell.
Your intelligence as a student is not graded with points.
You enjoy off-peak holiday bargains.
You study at Botanical Gardens(then get chased by a bunch of monkeys=P)
You dance to memorize times tables.
You teach your brother math with plastic soldiers on your bed.
School is in the car when mum has an emergency to attend.
People forget you study on public holidays.
The world is you classroom.
Your friends talk about exams and you wonder why people's education is dictated by it.
You’re in a prayer meeting when others are at tuition.
You read Little Women as English Literature when others read textbooks.
Your 2 year old brother listens attentively to 8 chapters of unabridged Pinocchio.
You’re asked to do things last minute because you are not in “school”.
Other kids' paintings are restricted to piece of art paper, you have the whole church wall.
You’re shopping for Christmas presents when others are only thinking of Christmas presents.
Your mum is cooking lunch, feeding the toddler, and teaching 3 different grades at once!
