Hubby’s going to be gone next week, so I told the kids we’ll be spending a lot of time at the library. My son jumped up and down and said, “Yay!”
I said to him, “When I was a kid, I didn’t like going to the library. It meant I was checking out a book that I didn’t want to read, and doing homework I didn’t want to do. We didn’t go and just hang out to read things for fun.”
He was schocked. “Who made you read books you didn’t want to read? That would suck!”
“They were books assigned by my teachers in school.” I told him. “That’s one reason why we homeschool, so that you can read what you want to read, and learn what you want to learn.”
“So if you don’t read the book, you fail the class?”
“Kind of like that,” I replied.
“Then what happens if you fail?”
“You have to repeat the class, and read the same book again.” I told him.
“I’m so glad I homeschool,” he said.
“Me too, big guy, me too.”
