Homeschooling Means...#22 kids don't get to participate in the typical low-budget school plays that are put on by dedicated volunteers.  For many years I played the piano for second grade plays for a teacher friend of mine.  It was fun and kids love to be on stage!

Instead, we have the pleasure of participating in a children's theater workshop for homeschoolers put on by knowledgeable, talented people who are in the local theater community.  The kids audition and then have 3 hour rehearsal classes every week for 3 months where they learn to act, sing, and dance.  The result is a quality production that truly is a pleasure to see.

This year is Disney's Mulan Jr and we cannot wait to see what parts the kids get!

(This series is meant to be mostly lighthearted and fun.  Some may be serious, but most will be silly, braggy, or of the keepin'-it-real variety.  Not every homeschool is the same.  And some of these things could be said by public school parents.  This is just to highlight MY experience with MY homeschool and MY children.  Enjoy these little insights into our life and feel free to share your own "Homeschooling means..." in the comments!)
