You Might Be a Homeschooler If…


Over the years I’ve heard a LOT of homeschooler jokes and thought that it would be fun to share of them with you.

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.
