The clincher

I've been toying with the notion of quitting homeschooling for the past year (actually, it's been my unofficial plan). But this was the moment that really solidified my resolve:

St. Nick was fussing over his homework. Loudly. Reminding me of a 2yr old, actually, which I pointed out to him. And I asked, "Would you act this way in a regular school?"

Pause, but not for thought. Rather to look at me as if I had my brains leaking out my ears. "No."

"Well, why are you acting this way here?"

"Because you're my MOM!"

Point taken.

Just to prove we do actually do educational things, some photos (St. Nick doing an experiment on conditioning with the dog).
