We have decided to homeschool this year (I’m using “we” in the royal sense), and the reactions have included shock, happiness, confusion and skepticism.
And that’s just within my family.
I’ve thought about homeschooling for a few years, but I decided the best time to start was when I was up to my eyeballs in work.
I always get more accomplished when I am short on time. It makes me focus. I am naturally
lazy dreamy and when gifted with an abundance of unstructured time, the squandered hours unspool around me. So it makes sense to jump in when I’m insanely busy with photographic pursuits and have a to-do list as long as an elephant’s trunk.
I am inordinately excited to design a curriculum, striving for the ideal mixture of the traditional and the irreverent.
Textbooks include the Boy Scout Handbook, Emily Post’s Etiquette, and The Daring Book for Girls.
I consider Hildy Johnson and Walter Burns to be excellent role models.
I think it’s perfectly acceptable to study the art of animation by spending the afternoon watching Looney Toons.
Our courses of study include
Greek history and mythology
I reserve the right to figure it out as I go along.
