    Steph at 1/16 is on a roll today. This post is a classic. We also get the odd looks when we’re out with all four of our kids (bookend boys, unlike Steph). And, yes, occasionally we get very dumb questions.

    Yoy know, the pocket sized homeschool faq isn’t a bad idea. Sort of like the pocket sized Constitutions that libertarians carry around.

    I really like Chris’ suggestion. I seem to think I saw those in one of my various “homeschool resource” treks across the net, but for the life of me can’t remember where it was.
    In public I mostly perform the question for question trick. If ever asked how they ‘learn’ I’d probably say “Good question! I’ve only got three, how on earth does a public school teacher do it with 20?”

    About the previous post of yours linked to, I sure hope Lydia graciously replied that it wasn’t needed for her masters, so why bother now.;)

    A shoe saleslady argued with me about how many children I had. She couldn’t BELIEVE I only had two and we homeschool. She really thought I was lying and the “others” were at home.

    It was very funny — in an insulting kind of way.
