The Low Down on Homeschooling

11 Feb

Normally all you’ll see on a homeschooling blog is this….

Blissful homeschooling moments.

Isn’t it sweet.

But how often do you get the real low down view on homeschooling

…the floors

Just look at these floors!

Did you imagine that I have time to keep them in immaculate condition?

If you’ve visited before, did you imagine that they always sparkle that way?

Blogs viewing and visitor floor standards are all an illusion,

to hide the reality of a homeschooler’s floor.

Honestly, it usually looks like this until the end of the day, or sometimes the end of the week or even sometimes until the next visitor arrives.

Oh my!  Getting down low is as scary for me as it is for you!

Look what I viewed under my couch!

If you have a weak stomach, please turn away now.

Okay, for all of our benefit, let’s get back to the illusions.

Isn’t homeschooling wonderful?!

    Ahh, the illusion is now shattered. I thought you were a wonder woman both in h/schooling and “house-wifely duties”! I don’t feel so bad now!

    You ain’t seen nothing! Times the kids by three and you get three times the amount of rubbish on the floor 😀 Oh and add a spoiled Cavalier who, sheds like there is no tomorrow.

    Rental inspection or my Mother visiting always gets our place ship shape 😀

    Gotta love external motivation -it does have its place! 😉
    For a moment there I thought you’d managed to snap a piccie of under my couch. Funny though, I did actually manage to sweep under mine today. Hooray for me! 🙂
