You Know You Homeschool When

Your three year old’s pretend adversaries quickly evolve from monsters, aliens and generic “bad guys” to actual historical foes.
He runs around with his hand in the shape of a gun screaming “The British are coming!  The British are coming! Bad ‘red-coats’!”
And when he has his toy animal say “We the people, of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union…”
Bet you can’t guess what we just started studying.

    Isn’t it awesome?! I just love that our kids ‘play’ and act out real times from history. The year we read ‘The Work and the Glory’, all they ever played was that they were pioneers. When we study the Revolutionary War, they’re the patriots vs. the loyalists. Their other favorite thing to play together is The Alamo. Sigh, life is good.

    Oh, and I can’t forget Les Miserables! The endless barricades that they build in the backyard with the pine needles are a thing to behold!
