Why doesn't he go to regular school?

Yesterday we were at the Rec center when a couple of kids approached me and asked why Bubba doesn't go to regular school.

Bubba looked right at them and said, "Because regular school is boring."

Girl "But school is supposed to be boring!" "You just have to do it."

Me "Not they way I do it." "If something is boring then I'm doing it wrong." "Our school is fun."

The kids just looked at me in awe and that made me kinda sad. When did we decide the learning had to be tedious?

Even if school isn't "fun", it should at the very least be interesting.
We have kids asking their parents if they would homeschool like we do. Our schooling is not always as funtastic as can be but it is ALWAYS interesting. The kids come away saying they are glad they learned that day.

Anything worth doing should at least be interesting. My marriage and motherhood isn't always fun but I can tell you it isn't boring! lol

Absolutely!

It sucks that not every child who wants to be hoeschooled, can be :-/
