I'm a 40-something gal from Appalachia who loves to travel through the south chasing the sun - almost always with a coastal destination.

As I blog hop around this blog party, I find there are a lot of home school moms out there who blog. I feel like an outsider looking in, kinda like the weird girl who can't sit with the cool girls in the lunch room. Since my son is 20 this month, I think my home-schooling days have passed me by. I would not have been a good home-schooler because my first thoughts are : WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SOMEONE DO THAT? LOL
I have several reasons for this line of thinking:
1. I had one child, we bored each other to tears - I was not into Ninja Turtles and could not convince him the Young and the Restless was an educational program.
2. If I'd had more than one child, I would definitely want to send them packing somewhere on a daily basis.
So to all you home school moms out there, just remember: once upon a time, there was a mother who had 16 kids and was praying her heart out to God every day that somehow He would provide a teacher and a building somewhere far away from her house that she could send these little creatures to every day so she could get a break and perhaps a job away from home, where she could have conversations with adults. Lo and Behold, PUBLIC SCHOOLS were formed by grandparents who wanted to see their grandchildren and then send them home in the afternoons.
