This evening, Brooklyn was playing with one of her friends from our apartment complex and had her first experience with being asked what school she goes to.  She tried to tell her friend that we do school at home, but that apparently didn't really register in the kid's mind.  I said "Brooklyn is home-schooled" and it was like a little light bulb went off.  Her eyes bugged out and she said "She's home schooled?!  Wow!  Brooklyn, you're so lucky!  They say moms are the very best teachers".

What a cool kid :-)

They spent the rest of the evening coloring with sidewalk chalk on the back porch, Brooklyn decked out in her pink fairy wings.  Yes, believe it or not... home schooled kids can socialize  ;-)


My son will be 4 soon, everyone's been asking about "big" school which children usually attend once they've turned five. I love telling people that we're going to home school, all the different reactions I get, of course the first question I get is about socialisation. Everyone says my son is a great communicator, he speaks so well for his age and on a range of topics too, so I have no problem reminding people that he hasn't been to school to learn that, so I'm sure he'll be just fine.
