Don't hate me because we sleep late.

Today was a sleep late sort of day. How late did we sleep? Until 9:30!

I like to give all sorts of selfless reasons for homeschooling, but I'd be a dirty liar if I didn't acknowledge that sleeping in is one of the top three reasons I do it. The other two reasons? Not having to deal with homework and visiting museums and zoos off-hours.

After we were done sleeping until 9:30 (did I mention about the sleeping until 9:30?) we went to the library where we wandered around filling our book bags until we had forty-five books to check out. Forty-five books! The librarian was the right sort of librarian and she praised our selections very nicely. I could tell that she wanted to come home with us and lose herself in a quiet of afternoon of reading.

We took out a whole bunch of books about primates in general, one about Jane Goodall specifically, some Babymouse, The Double Daring Book for Girls, some mysteries and a whole bunch of Warrior Kitty books. We took them home, camped out in front of the fire and read quietly four about four hours. It was complete heaven.

This meant that the laundry and tidying in general were neglected, though it's not like they are going to walk away from neglect.

Sounds GOOD.

I am pretty sure sleeping in is the only reason I homeschool. LOL Ok, not really but it's in my top 3 for sure. We are rarely up before 9 and usually start school about 10...or whenever.

We've been homescholling since January, and I do not miss getting up @ 7am to take my oldest to preschool.

They may not walk away from neglect but wouldn't it be grand if they just walked away?

What'd you get for yourself? I need some good reading.

If I ever homeschooled my boys, sleeping in would be my number one reason I'd do it. Oh, I love to sleep in! And to go to the library. And hang out at home.

Tell me again why I don't homeschool?
