I know what you might be thinking… “You were home schooled? How did you have a social life?”
Throughout High School, I frequently heard this question, almost to the point where I would roll my eyes in frustration. People just don’t—didn’t—and will never get it!
Homeschoolers are unfortunate victims of stereotypical prejudice. They are assumed to be nerdy, bad at sports, and robbed of life’s glorious opportunities. Although homeschooling has proven faulty for some, it has benefited thousands, including me.
This was my first post of The Lingering Lamb. In attempts to save if, I accidentally deleted it from my blog… BUT NO WORRIES, I have retrieved it from my computer, and you can now enjoy it once again!
Here are three reasons why I enjoyed HOMESCHOOLING:
1) I could wake up whenever I wanted. As my late grandfather would say, “Sleep is one of the great pleasures of life.” Now that I’m in college, I’m starting to believe that statement more and more. In High School, I probably received 8 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Now, maybe 6 or 7.
2) Our local Home School basketball team was amazing!
Not many homeschoolers can say they experienced a top-level athletic experience, but I can. Our team (the Patriots) played many of the best teams in the state, (we even beat Hargrave Military Academy my junior year) and even had a victory over the best public school team in our city. The coaching was top-notch, and the competition was real.
3) I got to see my family more. Yes, my siblings were—and still are—my closest companions. Yes, it was annoying sometimes, but the perseverance proved helpful. I now get along with almost anybody.
KEY LESSON: If you can tolerate your siblings, you can tolerate anybody (except when your brother beats you in FIFA or Call of Duty, that’s unbearable).
So what do you guys think? What are some pros and cons of homeschooling?
