I’ll admit it.
I AM a homeschool snob.
Not in the sense that I believe that homeschooling is the only way for everyone. No, I don’t believe that.
I guess I should say I’m more of a snob about the flexibility that homeschooling allows.
A few years ago, before we moved to Florida, we went to Legoland and Sea World between Christmas and New Year’s. Rookie mistake, yet I wasn’t a rookie! After we left Sea World I looked at my husband and said “what in the world were we thinking??”
It’s not because I don’t want to associate with other schoolers, we have plenty of friends that make other educational choices. It’s purely out of convenience. Out of simplicity. Places are just less crowded! We have grown accustomed to having places like the park and the library to ourselves and even the grocery store during the week.
And then school breaks hit or summer break starts.
Just last week we took the kids to a sailing class. It was a great class but it was crowded. We will go back, but you can be sure that we will wait until September. I mean, why not? Who wants to deal with a crowd if we don’t have to?
Are you a homeschool snob? What places or events do you avoid when school is out?
