I’m a homeschool kid, and for some reason people ALWAYS have a ton of questions to ask me. Complete strangers, like the lady at the Wal-Mart checkout counter for example, tend to feel the need to ask me the same question over and over “why are you not in school today honey?” and she always just looks at me blankly when I answer ” I’m homeschooled” The way people just smile awkwardly at me sometimes you would think I had just said “well you see, I have 3 heads, the other 2 are sick and the school nurse sent us home.” So today I’m going to be writing a list of popular questions people ask me and I will answer them to the best of my ability. So here we go!!
