  3. That was great! I always got annoyed when people assumed that I slept in till 10 and stayed in my PJ's all day just because I was hs'ed. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Ha. I know just what you mean. We home school so we have nothing better to do than sit around and chit chat with unexpected guests and take care of the kids whose parents work when school is closed for a teacher's meeting.

      We do call pj day once in a while. Usually on a cold and rainy day. One time I decided, since a lot of people were sick and the weather was nasty, we would have pj day. My mother in law, who does not understand such things, dropped by to find us all in our night clothes at ten am. I thought I would die. Nearly twenty years of trying to win her heart to the fact that I can be a good wife to her son out the window with one swing of the front door. LoL.

      Now that summer is here, my girls think the day is successful if they can get from their pjs, through their chores and into their bathing suits without getting dressed. But the fact of the matter is, our day starts before the sun and when school is out for the day or a holiday, we usually have some other project or volunteer work we are doing. We are definitely not idle and I think waste far less time than our public school counterparts.

      Hugs,

    2. I think it will take some time but as HS'ing gets more common others will see that we are often busier, better educated, better socalized and well mannered than public school kids... I was at the dr. the other day and a lady there was complimenting me on Arabella and how happy and healthy she was. Then she was saying that her neices are in grade school and it is just terrible the things they see and go through. I told her we planned on HS'ing and she was very interested, asking me all sorts of questions as her daughter wants to have a family but they are nervous of public school.

      I was in public school until grade 9 but wish I had never had to go through the horrors of all that... so grateful our children will never attend a PS!
