I was at Walmart yesterday buying some things for today’s Drama Club and the man in front of me at the register asked if I was doing an art project. I told him no, the stuff was for a homeschool drama club we started. He smiled and said “That’s something the schools don’t do much of anymore, the arts.” I told him that’s one of the great things about homeschooling, when we want something we just create it. He agreed that was pretty cool.
It was refreshing to hear someone’s first response to homeschooling be a positive one. And it made me think . That really is one of the best things about homeschooling. We don’t need to petition anyone or get any bureaucracy to go along with an idea. We don’t need permission at all. We just see what we need and make it happen, either in our own homes, at the park, or wherever!
