You might be homeschooled when

This is what my teen son wrote for his writing project the other day.  He was inspired by Jeff Foxworthy, the "You Might Be a Redneck" cartoonist. Anyway, I thought it was funny so here it goes.

You might be homeschooled when:

When there are cow eyeballs on your kitchen counter waiting to be dissected.

When your Mom's china has been removed from the china cabinet to make room for art supplies and science kits.

When your Mom demands you get off the computer so she can get her fix on

When the bumper sticker on the back of the car says, "My Dad is in love with my teacher."

When there are no school days off for snow, but there are days off for Mom's stressed out and wants to clean the house.

When every family vacation is to an educational destination.

When your backyard and front sidewalk have burn marks from the latest science experiment.

When the printer at the library runs out of ink trying to print out the receipt for the 50+ books you are checking out.

When you have to have a picnic lunch on the floor because there are too many books and projects on the table.

When most of your friends have never been on a school bus and those that have have left school because it wasn't educational enough.

    We seem to have a few things in common other than teen pregnancies. My oldest two daughters have cardiac issues as well. Both have had open heart surgery to repair congenital defects--Atrial Septal Defects with a Partial Pulmonary Veinous Return Anomoly! What a mouthful!! Also, if your birthdate is listed correctly we share a birthday--just not the same year! I'm glad that you started your blog and look forward to getting to know you! Blessings! Kris
