My Mom & Homeschool

Christmas here!

My mom started school for the year on Monday (she's in 8th grade now!) and a lot of you had some questions about her being homeschooled, so I'm here today to fill you in! My mom is homeschooled and so are two of her brothers (who are 15 and 8 years old) and her sister's first year of school is next year. She is 5 now. Oh, and my momma is 13. My mom's third brother (who is 11 years old) goes to public school at an elementary school.

I was asked how many hours my mom does school. She has no set amount of hours, it's just however long it takes for her to finish her work for the day. When it comes to different subjects, in our house it runs just like how it does in a school where you have all your subjects every day. Well, let me rephrase that...this year we're trying something different! This school year what my family is trying is where every day you have a different subject. For example, on Monday my mom did a week's worth of science, and yesterday she did a week's worth of math. This week she also has history, literature, and art, which will be the same every week.

My mom really enjoys being homeschooled and being home, along with having lots of extra time. Sometimes she'll even go ahead and do a couple day's worth of work when she's feeling restless. Then she has the rest of the day to hang out with her best friend! (That's me!) She has also been liking this "subject a day thing" and has enjoyed the week so far.

Bow wow, I wish I could go to doggy school!

P.S. The Pawlympics have been progressing very well so far! Today we have a couple of fun events I hope you can watch...maybe some of you are pawticipating, too! Click here to head over to Noodle's blog for his tongue curling/raspberries event, and click here to head over to Chester and Angel Joey's blog for their epic ear flapping event!


  1. Good luck with your home school stuff. You keep an eye on her and make sure she does her homework

  2. Ghostwriter considered home schooling her four kids (the siblings.) But they would never listen to her! She had to work too. They did a lot of great field trips on the weekends, like going to museums or fossil hunting trips. We're all science geeks. The younger siblings worked in our family pharmacy for several years as technicians and delivery drivers. They still work in pharmacies. Jessy works in a hospital pharmacy and Jason in a community pharmacy.

    We hope you're having fun at the Pawlympics!

  3. We just think that's so cool that your mom is home schooled, Christmas, and the fact that you can be in the classroom with her is beyond awesome!

  4. Did you know that 4 of our grandpeeps are also homeschooled, they are 15, 13, 11, 7 and 5 months old.....well that baby isn't doing any work momma is super busy with that, and running them to sports etc. Sometimes when all 10 visit our house is crazy. stella rose

    There is lots to be said that is pawsitiff about home-schooling; not least the company one can keep!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Lady's cousin homeschooled her kids for many years (then her cousin decided to go back to school so the kids had to go to school too). we are glad this is something that works for your family.

  7. Your homeschooling is working out nicely. You are a very good writer

  8. Hi Chris,
    We live in Silicon Valley and there are lots and lots of homeschooled children. My Mommy is not one of them, however. She went to public school because her Mommy - my Mommy#2 - has to work full time. It is the price one pays for being a single parent.

  9. Well we surely appreciate the explanation on home schooling. When my human sis was in school there was no home schooling. Have a great school year
    Hugs madi your bfff

  11. Very interesting, BUTT now we are wondering why 1 brother goes to public school? We know your mom must be a very good student!

  13. Crikey Christmas ...... that was good to hear!! One of our Grandkids is not happy at school and his Mum is thinking of home schooling him. It was good to hear that it works for your Momma.

  14. that was great to hear more... I learnt that homeschooling is not to sit in front of the tv and getting best grades by your pawrents ( my momma really thought that as she was a puppy, imagine that hahahaha). I like that homeschooling is possible in the us and that you have fabulous programs for the kids who learn at home.... I wish we had this kind of school here too... that would be GREAT!

  15. Christmas, your mom is one smart grrrl!

  16. That subject a day thing sounds like a great idea! And Christmas, you do get to go to doggy school it is when you learn tricks and how to properly behave. I think your Mom is doing great at homeschooling you :)
