Homeschool Family...

Here is a great video one of my friends sent us recently. (Thanks, Jenny!) Enjoy.

And in the same vein, here are some Christmas lyrics I really like; feel free to sing along as you read them:

To the tune of "Twelve Days of Christmas:"


On the first day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Can you homeschool legally?"

On the second day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the third day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the fourth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the fifth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "YOU ARE SO STRANGE! What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the sixth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "How long will you homeschool, YOU ARE S0 STRANGE, what about P.E. , do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the seventh day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the eighth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, what about P.E. do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the ninth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "They'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E. do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the tenth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "What about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the eleventh day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "I could never do that, what about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the twelfth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Can they go to college, I could never do that, what about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the thirteenth day of homeschool I thoughtfully replied: "They Can go to college, yes you can do this, they can have graduation, we don't like the prom, we do it cuz we like it, they are missing nothing, we'll homeschool forever, WE ARE NOT STRANGE!, We give them P.E., and we give them tests, they are socialized, AND WE HOMESCHOOL LEGALLY!

Hey, Alice -- Tony found out today that the guy in the video is Tim Hawkins! Did you realize that?

Hey Mary--I didn't realize that, but I just watched it again and sho'nuff--it is that "party in the flesh" himself! What a crazy guy.
Speaking of Tim Hawkins--have you seen "Cletus Take the Reel?" Hilarious!

OK, I hadn't, but now I have! It is so funny! He is zany. I would love to see him in person.

Love ya!
Mary

Okay--get this, Mary. Tim Hawkins is going to be in Atlanta in April at a comedy club called the Punchline, along with a Christian comedian named Derrick Tennant, who--and here's the incredible part--went to Houghton College with Eric 1989-1993!!! We are thinking of e-mailing Derrick to ask about tickets, etc. and can we meet Tim Hawkins. That is, if we're still living in this area...

Weird.

Oh yeah--he's from the Lyncourt church Tennant family...
