This week I had the honor of someone asking my children what grade they were in. and what school? (specific school). My son gleafully said, "oh, we are homeschooled!? ( sigh of releif at the gleaful part).
To my dismay I got a very cold look of disgust! Then, a sort of repremand that I was sort of not sure what she said. I just told her my kids have allergies and it is better that are home. Then, I felt myself starting to tell her my schooling background because she annouced "She WAS A TEACHER".
Wow, needless to say we didn't talk much after that. The conversation was going great until she found out I homeschooled! UGH!!!
Then, if that wasn't bad enough. I had another person talk to me about my kids being put back into public school. I told him why my kids weren't in public school and he said, " Things are going better at the school. I should run for the school board and tell them the changes that need to be made. " UGH!!!
In the end after a lengthy discussion I concluded with:
" The only way my kids would be going back to school is if I am dead and there is no other option!"
School is gearing up and I am feeling the heat around here... He even said, " We need to get enrollment up. More people are coming to the area from other schools." I said, " Well there can't be that many more students because we lived in a depressed area and there are only so many that live here! "
They are really trying to pull strings to get us homeschoolers in the door. That is for sure!
Anyone else feeling the heat lately???
