Not long ago, I asked you all to help me out with something… I wanted you to send me some pictures of your kids doing their homeschooling thing so I could share them here. I wanted to help debunk some scary myths about homeschoolers (learning from only a single viewpoint, never having their ideas challenged etc) and so far I have gotten a few families sending me pictures.
After my recent experience at the grocery store, I feel like it’s more important and personal than ever to blow these myths out of the water. So will you keep helping me?
It was Talk Like A Pirate Day and Krispy Kreme offered a dozen free doughnuts to each person that came dressed like a pirate. So each of us, my 2 boys and I, dressed like a pirate. Of course, we didn’t need three dozen doughnuts so we took our loot to the local fire department. The firefighters on duty offered to give us a tour of the department. The boys had fun, did a good deed for the community and were able to learn a little bit about what our firefighters have to go through to keep us safe.
PLEASE NOTE: When you email your pictures to LLL, you are giving us the right to publish your pictures and your story here. Thank you! (We won’t use your pictures for anything else without asking you first!)
