Easter p.s.

I completely forgot about this until a minute ago.

While we were waiting on my brother to show up at my mom's she asked about Brett going to highschool. When I commented that Brett had decided to stay home and continue going to the co-op for at least another year she replied "but he needs to go to school for socialization". I quickly began to enlighten her with just how much "socialization" the boy gets and she mentioned prom to which my wonderful eldest daughter commented "there is homeschool prom". I think my mom could tell that I was getting a bit defensive so she dropped the subject!

I do have to say it was a marked improvement though......when we started homeschooling she constantly questioned us about academics...now all she can think to question about it the darn prom......small steps, small steps...what progress we have made!

LOL! "What About Prom?" Like Molly Ringwold's question to her preppie beau in "Pretty In Pink". I laugh because that was Matt's concern...what about prom.

My dad calls us about twice a week (he lives in TN), and he is always asking if I am going to ever put Logan (6 1/2) in school or not. I reply "probably not because he is learning so much just on his own". He hates us homeschooling! He's always asking if they are "doing their work". It's tough sometimes. Then again, when he heard about the bunch of teens getting into trouble at Milford for drugs, he is shocked, and I reply "Dad, that's one reason we homeschool!!" lol

I find this hysterical, the prom???? I went to traditional public school, never went to a prom ever!!! My homeschooled kids will never know a prom , but I think they will survive!!! LOL

If Brett ever has a desire to go to prom, there are at least 2 homeschool proms he could attend. At least Jay is on board with the whole thing. Guess it really doesn't matter what my mother thinks!

Tisha....you would think the bust at Milford would make her HAPPY he isn't being exposed to that kind of "socialization".

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
