Continuing our series ….  I thought you might enjoy (and Lord knows I will) hearing from home schooled kiddos instead of just this homeschooling mama. So, I’ve recruited… er, forced… nay, assigned essays… to six students.  You’ll get to hear the good, the bad, and the goofy straight from the good, the bad, and the goofy.  No prompting or editing by me: Just the questions and their answers. 

Ask your questions in the comment section and the student will answer. 

Next up, Esther.  She is passionate and loving.   Seriously.  {this ‘interview’ was interesting and I may have giggled at her answer to the last question.}

Why I Like Being Homeschooled Esther 9yo girl

Why do you like being homeschooled?

I like being homeschooled because I get to spend more time with my family.  I can play with them all day.  I love that.

I also like that I can do double school work in a day and have the next day off, if I want to do the work.  I can look at my assignments in the lesson plan book and do my work for that day and the next.  I like to do that so I can have a slumber party with Phoebe.  Or have a friend come over to play.

What don’t you like about homeschooling?

I don’t like having to learn Latin.  It’s hard.

Sometimes being with your brother can be annoying.   Just sometimes though.

Will you homeschool your kids?  Why or why not?

I will homeschool my children so that they can spend more time with the family.  And to save money from buying a lot food for their lunches every day. And because I don’t want them to be public schooled.

Is there anything else you’d like people to know about homeschooling?

It’s fun!  Lots of fun.

Public school is overrated.

And I don’t like being homeschooled, I LOVE IT!

Do you have any questions for Esther?

Dear Esther..

What is your favorite subject?

Why do you have to learn Latin? I had Latin in high school and also did not care for it….and I did not learn very much.

And why are you so darn cute! LuvYa

Papalou,

1. Hmmmm…..My favorite subject, believe it or not, is math.
2. Because it’s good to know multiple languages. And because other languages come from Latin.
3. I guess I was just born that way! :)

LuvYa! Esther
