Homeschool Comeback

This past Christmas someone asked me, you know, one of those usual stupid questions everyone who does not homeschool asks, "How do you do Math?" "Oh, I could never do Math!" Or, "I don't know how you do it."

I used to say, "I am not starting with Algebra, I'm starting with Kindergarten and working my way up along with them, it's a gradual thing."

Now, I say:
"I have the answer book."

Watch people have their little "Aha" moment, it's pretty funny.


  1. Hee, hee.

    (I left you a long message back on your "trying to get organized" post.)

    (And thanks for your "help" -- the problem has not been solved! Prayers appreciated.)

  2. I am SO using this!!

  3. That's really funny! I usually end up saying, "Well, I use a great program and Math isn't my 'hard' subject. I like Math." However, your answer is better because it doesn't have to be easier cuz I like Math ... everyone who homeschools has access to the TM!

  4. Great to see a post from you Jamie and when I was in high school back in the mid 60's I bypassed algebra for regular math so I would definately have to have the answer book. Hope you and your lovely family have an awesome week.

  5. I always say, "The best way to learn it is to teach it." I always get a very confused look.

  6. This....I like! What a wonderful way to respond!!

  7. I hate math. BORING! If I homeschooled it would be art everyday ....all day long.

    I AM thankful for the "math" minds out there and those who like it.

    My mind just doesnt work that way. I like to be creative and expressive and messy.

    happy adding!

  8. ATTENTION: Jamie Jo there is an award waiting for you over at my blog. I always feel better after spending time at your blog and feel you need some recognition.
