Homeschooler Moment

The heading of this blog says that it is to be “random thoughts from a grace saved sinner, small church pastor and homeschool dad.” With the exception of an occasional article about the politics of homeschooling, I haven’t really posted much from the “dad” standpoint.

New Year’s resolution: I will from time to time post short, fun glimpses from our homeschool life. Here’s the first.

On Saturday we had to get up fairly early to take our oldest back to college. The youngest was not excited. He insisted he wanted to stay up the night before to watch the “ball fall” at midnight, so getting up early was not on his little six year old agenda.

So I’m standing there trying to get him to wake up enough to put his clothes on so we can get in the car and leave. He’s not being very helpful and finally says, “Is this Sunday?” I said, “No, hon, it’s Saturday.” He then says, “Then why do we have to get dressed?”

Ahh, the joys of homeschooling.

(Note from my wife: Please tell people that we don’t really let the kids go all week in their PJs!)

How very cute! I am with him, if it isn't Sunday, why do we have to get dressed?
