I saw this on a homeschool blog and since I’m feeling under the weather today, took a little break to fill it out.
Your family is…
My husband and our two sons, G who is 7, and D who is 3. And me. 🙂
Name 5 homeschool products you cannot live without.
I’m not a “product” person; in other words, I’m frugal and live very simply (read that as VERY simply). I don’t spend money on gadgets and other things that most people think they can’t live without. Um, that said, I certainly couldn’t live without my laptop. It’s a crucial homeschooling tool for today; I do all my curriculum research and most of my curriculum-buying via my computer. So that’s the one thing I’d say I can’t live without. Everything else, I guess I already am surviving without.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
My bike. It took me on so many adventures.
What is your favorite toy as a grown-up?
My bike. It takes me on long, relaxing, enjoyable fitness rides.
When you were little, what did you want to do when you grew up?
I wanted to be a mom. Period. Mission accomplished.
How many houses have you lived in?
Just houses? Two growing up, and two that we’ve owned (including the current one).
Favorite homeschool hero?
No one in particular. I learn from all of them.
Favorite Bible verse?
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
If you could travel back in time, where would you go?
Oh, what a question for a history buff! I could come up with so many answers! I guess my top answer is medieval Europe, to experience their routine daily life. But I’d like to skip the plagues, thankyouverymuch.
What kind of homeschooler are you?
The lazy kind. 🙂
Okay, I’m also pretty traditional. I like to do textbooks & daily work for core subjects, but I also veer off and do non-traditional things in the subjects where that works out well (history, science).
Do you have an accent?
I’m Southern, y’all…what do you think? 🙂
What are you good at?
Projects around the house, being truly frugal and stretching every penny, organization, being a trustworthy friend, and writing.
What are you horrible at?
Time management, social situations, being liked by others.
Tell us something really strange about yourself.
Um, okay. I have a hair phobia, specifically the hairs that accumulate in the shower drain (gag!).
