This evening, Ordinary Spouse exclaimed,

This is why I don’t read homeschooling blogs!

She was looking at a blog describing the curriculum for a particular second grader. It included the following textbooks:

  • 1 math
  • 1 grammar
  • 1 spelling
  • 1 writing
  • 3 world history
  • 2 United States history
  • 1 reading
  • 1 literature
  • 2 science
  • 1 vocabulary
  • 2 art
  • 2 geography
  • 1 critical thinking
  • 1 foreign language
  • 1 keyboard skills

Says Ordinary Spouse…

Nothing like a homeschooling blog to make you feel inadequate…

And then she went on to imagine this conversation between two homeschooling parents…

“What did you do in school today?”

“Oh, I gave my daughter a box of buttons and some felt.”
