Oh No, They Found Out Our Secret

The Boston Globe has found out our secret: Homeschoolers go places and do things.

Darn it. Now that everyone knows, how we going to keep them out of our ultra-exclusive club? Now everyone is going to want to homeschool! And then, we won’t be able to go to the museums and Disneyland when it’s not busy anymore. They’ll always be busy! Aaaaahhhh!

Well, the good news is, we still have other secrets that haven’t yet been discovered. Shhh.. don’t tell anyone, OK? We don’t want a mass exodus!

    Great article!!!!

    Cute Tammy!

    I for one would love to see more kids my daughter’s age (12) at the library and the pool. Though she thinks the babies and toddlers are cute, they hardly challenge her socially. 😛

    Sheri–we have that even with Will’s being five. We went to the pool the other day….all two and three year olds. Fortunately, he is finally big enough to do the big slide, so he could do that without having to wait in line.

    We are going to Great Wolf Lodge in the middle of the week next month. I bet we are blissfully alone…

    Now that it’s been revealed that we don’t just lock our children in their rooms all day, whatever will we be accused of failing at next? 😉

    Sheri – ya, that is what we signed up for as homeschoolers – being out and about doing things while the rest of the universe’s kids are at school. I see this kind of thing as a social challenge of a different sort – make the social situations we need, rather than waiting for them to appear.

    Anna – Five and on the big kids’ slide! Wow! Bravo young man.

    dancingboysmom – heh. Give it time. I predict that in 10 years, the “homeschoolers are crazy” articles and such will be no more common than the “vegetarians are crazy” and “attachment parents are crazy” ones we have now. Of course, being accepted in the mainstream culture has its own set of drawbacks.
