You Know You're A Homeschooler When...
you are lying in bed at 11:00 at night with your husband, and you have Algebra I paraphernalia lying all around you, and you are discussing things like y-intercept, slope, domain, range, and linear equations. Your husband is also working out the problems and trying to get them straight in his head so that he can somehow, someway, get it into our daughter's head! And you are both thanking God for www.purplemath.com . Yes indeed. The hardest part is that she wants to know why she needs to know all this stuff. When will she ever use this in life? The truth is--probably never--so, tell me, why are we still up? I'm quite sure this never happens in "NORMAL" families. Normal people are sleeping or, at least, doing something a little more fun!! Private school, here we come!

What dedicated parents! I'm sure you will enjoy turning out the light and going to sleep next year about this time!

How funny! You know we are sending my son to kindergarten next year, but I am already thankful that my husband is a math guy! I will send all math questions to him! My son is so interested in math that it won't take him long to surpass my mathematical understanding. I'll help out with reading, language and social studies! :)

Oh yeah! Although we haven't reached Algreba yet ~ I know just what you mean... David's cutting 8 inch construction paper circles right now, for Sadie's Math tomorrow. There's always something! :o)
