As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Questions About Our Homeschool

Just a few of the silly uninformed interesting questions that we have been asked over the years...

    • Do you give homework? It's all "home"work.

    • What do you do when they get detention?  
      Hmmmm...let's see.  Just how would I go about having my students stay after school? 

    • Do you do school in your pajamas?  And the popular variation,  Do you do school in your underwear? 
      (The variation was usually posed to my then-teenage son by other teenage males.  Tired of this question, Ryan would sometimes "forget" to tell people that he was homeschooled.)


    Although the temptation is there to stand with mouth agape, or even to fall on the floor in a heap of laughter, I usually just smile and answer the question as if it makes perfect sense.  Mostly because, before I was a homeschooler myself, I had a few silly uninformed interesting questions of my own. 

    Fellow home educators, have you ever been asked a silly uninformed interesting question?

    1. Such a good point. I too was once silly and uninformed... Hard to remember those days, wise as I am now.

      My all time favorite question was posed to my oldest when he was elementary school age~

      You do school at home? Who's your teacher?

      I love home schooling!!

      Blessings, Debbie
