It's that time again ... the time when kids go back to school, and the time when -- if I take DD to run errands with me, she's asked, "Shouldn't you be in school?"
I told her I was going to make her a BIG RED BUTTON to wear that says:
It's just not that uncommon anymore. Millions of kids are homeschooled in the United States. It's not weird, it's not illegal, it's not bad for kids.

Today, though, we have to run errands. Lots of them. Post office, library, UPS, grocery story and gas station. I have to fill up all the vehicles AND our gas cans because Earl is headed our way... they aren't sure where/if it's going to hit here, but if it does the winds where I am will be pretty brutal. We just want to be prepared in case we lose power (oh the joy).
So ... that's my day. Any big plans for you?
You Are an Indoor and Outdoor Person
You are equally comfortable indoors and outdoors - and you prefer a good mix of both.
You are fun loving and open to lots of activities. You are always up for trying something new.
Maybe you'll hike in the morning, read in the afternoon, swim after dinner, and take in a movie at night!
While you have a broad range of interests, you may have trouble turning these interests into passions. You're the type of person who likes to dabble.
