I was the valedictorian in my class and voted most likely to succeed…I was also a homeschooler. My parents homeschooled me and my three brothers, and from what I’ve experienced and learned over the years, homeschooling is not easy. It takes a lot of commitment, patience, and laughter.
I read this quote recently, and I think it’s a great motto to live by:
“Blessed are we who can laugh at ourselves, for we shall never cease to be amused.” – Author Unknown
The first homeschool joke I remember was from one of Todd Wilson’s Homeschooling cartoon books that my father brought back from a homeschool convention that he was attending one year:
Over the years I’ve heard a LOT of jokes about homeschooling and thought that it would be fun to share of them with you. Keep in mind that everyone’s homeschooling journey is different. Some of these jokes are spot on, some aren’t true for you, and some apply to homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers alike.
You Might Be a Homeschooler If…
…you’ve ever graded your own test.
…your report card was ever written on a napkin.
…you’ve ever read the dictionary or encyclopedia in your free time.
…you know what Vancouver B.C., V6B 4G3 is the address to.
…you’ve ever constructed your own catapult.
…birthdays are school holidays.
…you finish your homework early so you can play in the snow.
…you’ve ever done your homework in pajamas or a costume.
…you heard the Weird Al parody version of a song before you heard the original.
…you stop to read historical markers on trips and count it towards your history credit.
…you ever wore your coonskin cap to the grocery store and didn’t think it was weird.
…you’ve ever stepped on math manipulatives.
…you have your library barcode memorized.
…school lunches are actually really good.
…you’ve ever gotten an educational toy or textbook as a present.
If you thought that these were funny, share them with your friends and let us know what you think. 🙂
