PUBLIC SCHOOL SOCIALIZATION
When I mention we are homeschooling our children, we are without fail asked, '...But what about socialization?'
Fortunately, we found a way our kids can receive the SAME socialization that government schools provide.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, I will personally corner each child in the bathroom, give them each a wedgie and take their lunch money. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I will make sure to tease our children for not being in the 'in' crowd, taking special care to poke fun at any physical abnormalities. ... Fridays will be 'Fad and Peer Pressure Day.' we will all compete to see who has the coolest toys, the most expensive clothes, and the loudest, fastest, and most dangerous car.
Every day, I will adhere to a routine of cursing, being disrespectful, swearing in the hall, and mentioning our weekend exploits with alcohol and immorality.... and we have asked (our kids) to report us to the authorities in the event we mention faith, religion, or try to bring them up with any morals or values.

I am feeling the prayers... today I am up at my regular computer, and last night, Kevin got me a neck ice-pack to wrap around my neck and I helped him cook dinner. I apologize in advance for neglecting my other blog (the recipe blog). I have a stack of recipes piling up on my desk to add to the archives very soon. Today is our last day off, so we are having fun as a family (as much fun as you can have without straining your healing neck). I got this little essay from a homeschool list I am on. I thought I would share it here. Very cute. Enjoy!
