you know you're a homeschooling mom when...

...your kids play-act the Trojan War, declaring that they are superheroes of Troy and Greece.

...your son says he wants a Nintendo DS to help him learn Roman numerals.

...you find the thought of leaving the house on more than one weekday morning utterly exhausting.

...you love the idea of scheduling school terms around your calendar.

...you take an abacus along when you visit Grandma and Grandpa's house.

...the kids get a day off when mom is sick.

...you sometimes turn on "Sid the Science Kid," and call it Science.

...you hope and pray that your kids will finish their Reading chapter before the baby wakes up from her nap.

...you have an Educator's Library Card in your purse, even though your profession is "homemaker."

...you can take the gang to have lunch out, even though it's the middle of the week.

...you get excited about ordering curriculum.

...your kids get excited when you declare a Game Day, even if it's math games.

...you're always keeping an eye out for caterpillars.

I can identify with so many of these! Glad it is not just me. :-)

I can identify with the curriculum one! Yay, we're starting homeschooling! Thanks so much for your input several weeks back. I'm hoping to post soon about what we've been up to in this area.
