I was homeschooled all the way through high school. It was long before people knew much if anything about homeschooling at least in our area (I started kindergarten in '83 so it's been awhile) We got SO many comments from people when we would go out about why we weren't in school. At least now people usually know what homeschooling is. When I was little I'd have to explain and people would grill us with millions of questions which I always hated.

I homeschooled my oldest in fifth grade. He started the fifth grade and his teacher was "overwhelmed by all the (big, brown skinned) boys." She was nitpicking all the boys to death, nothing was ever getting taught because she was "so busy with discipline." Mind you these were all boys who had never been a discipline problem before!

I need to teach the kids to answer that they are homeschooled...they are confused when people ask them because to them "school" is the daycare they used to go to. I kind of didn't think it would be an issue yet, because Beth wouldn't even be starting kindergarten till this fall anyway. But I guess everyone is off at preschool, or daycare, or somewhere, because we rarely see kids over 2 or 3 out and about during the day.
