Homeschool Memoirs - The ______ Family



This week, I almost passed on my assignment from the homeschool memoirs, but then I woke up in the middle of the night last night with some inspiration and decided to flesh it out today. With a little help from a cool rhyming site I found, I came with a passable product.


So, without further ado, my own take on the ever famous Homeschool Family song:



We’re math whizzes and readers

We hope to raise some leaders

We even build bird feeders

Dad, five kids and me



We use some Charlotte Mason

And eclectic education

They think it’s a plantation

Dad, five kids and me



(clowns)

(frowns)

(gowns)



We school on the computer

Or help out like a tutor

Soon fighting off the suitors

Dad, five kids and me



We spend time all together

No matter what the weather

Identifying feathers

Dad, five kids and me



Leave the school bus waiting

‘Cuz Classrooms are sedating

Homeschool climbs the ratings

For Dad, five kids and me!


Okay, that was more fun than I thought it would be. Go check out some more!

You did a great job. I think many of us were intimidated by this one but I'm so glad that so many did do it. Also glad that we had something to go by and that we didn't have to come up with something completely original.

I love how you did something totally new and different with the last line of each verse. I just stuck w/ "A Homeschool Family"
