I got this in a email from a local homeschool group I belong too. I have no idea who wrote it but its fun...

Sung to the tune of The 12 days of Christmas. Enjoy!

On the first day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Can you homeschool legally?"

On the second day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the third day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Do you give them Tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the fourth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the fifth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "YOU ARE SO STRANGE! What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the sixth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "How long will you homeschool, YOU ARE S0 STRANGE, what about P.E. , do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the seventh day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the eighth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, what about P.E. do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the ninth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "They'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E. do you give them tests, are they socialized, do you homeschool legally?"

On the tenth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "What about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE!, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the eleventh day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "I could never do that, what about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, what about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the twelfth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "Can they go to College, I could never do that, what about graduation, they'll miss the prom, why do you do this, look at what they're missing, how long will you homeschool, YOU ARE SO STRANGE, What about P.E., do you give them tests, are they socialized, can you homeschool legally?"

On the thirteenth day of homeschool I thoughtfully replied: "They Can go to college, yes you can do this, they can have graduation, we don't like the prom, we do it cuz we like it, they are missing nothing, we'll homeschool forever, WE ARE NOT STRANGE!, We give them P.E., and we give them tests, they are socialized, AND WE HOMESCHOOL LEGALLY!

On the fourteenth day of homeschool my neighbor said to me, "How can I get started, why didn't you tell me, where do I buy curriculum, when is the next conference, WILL PEOPLE THINK WE'RE STRANGE? I think we can do this, if you will help us, we'll join a sports team, and we'll homeschool legally.

That was good. I feel so alone sometimes. I need the affirmations.

I can't believe I just found this post! It's so funny. I sung it with my 8 year old son and he loved it.

Love that. I have always wanted to homeschool - since the time my first was two years old. When he turned four and school was only a year away I stressed and stressed because I wanted to homeschool, knew how good it would be for our kids but everyone else was against it and let me know. We sent him to school, then a year later sent our daughter to school. Five years later it is time to send out third child off to school. Each summer break, each Christmas break, each spring break I desired to just keep them at home. This summer my husband finally said - let's just do it, who cares what others day. I ordered the curriculum the next week and HURRAY - here we are.
My point (yes there was a point to this post) is that when my son's best friends' mom found out we were taking our kids out of school and homeschooling she asked me why we were choosing that. I told her the above story and she responded with "oh, I thought it was because of ... grade 5", as though grade 5 was something to be dreaded. I laughed. The reason she was thinking we were pulling our kids out of school is because I was on the advisory board the year we had to discuss sex education and me and one of the other parents found some of the information they were going to share with the grade 7 students too much. (but they sex ed starts in grade 5 so she assumed that was the reason).
After our conversation I realized that many of the teachers and parents will think the same thing she did - oh well.
