A Homeschool Family

Spent the weekend having too much fun with our friends from Bakersfield. Jeannette and I have grown up together since we were TINY. I HAVE to tell you guys a story about the two of us but I actually need to spend some time writing it and I've been playing instead. (I'll do it later this week.) So, in the meantime, here's another Tim Hawkins clip. He was homeschooled his whole life and WE are homeschoolers so, we've both earned the right to poke fun at ourselves. Enjoy! (It's very short and the guy that plays the dad IS Tim. :) ) This is also what much of the world thinks we do and are, which I find almost funnier than the video!

  1. That's AWESOME! And so true....for some reason a lot of people think that every homeschooling family is like the Duggars and raising a bunch of Doogie Housers. Even my parents think that way and they should know better-they raised me after all!

  2. That is just the coolest video. I LOVED it. Thanks for sharing. Do they also have a blog? What a delightful family.

  3. Great video Robynn...we have one family in my area that home schools their stepping stone children and I know many people think of them as unusual...which happens when people don't understand or know the situation!!

    Cheers

  5. That was funny and, yup, with the stereotypes -though, from what I HEAR, some are spot on. Would LOVE to see the Redwoods someday. So, if/when we look to head west, I'll be looking you up!

  9. That was priceless ... thank you once again, Robynn, for my Chuckles du jour. Did you see Bz's birthday tribute yesterday on my blog?

    Ha ... word verification is S U G E R

    is that how 'home schooled' spell sugar?

  10. Thank you so much for your kind and caring words on my blog for Bz. I hope we DO get together sometime ... Lord, can you imagine the energy we'd produce... California and/or Texas wouldn't need any oil for months!!! I'm thinking 'wind' power here. You are a special lady, thank you for your humor, your wisdom, your compassion, your God-given talent. Hugs, Sandy

  11. Hahaha!! I love love love that!

    My husband was homeschooled all the way through graduation, and I love to tease him about it. :) Any time he makes a dumb mistake or doesn't know something I say, "Dang home schoolin'".

    And then when *I* make a dumb mistake or don't know something, it's, "Dang public schoolin'."

  16. We've homeschooled at various times. My son just married a delightful young lady who was homeschooled all the way through. I have so loved the homeschool graduates who have been in my composition classes at the university. They are refreshingly eager to learn!

  19. That guy cracks me up!!! Looking forward to your story. BTW, I DID go to the chiropractor GUY yesterday, the first headache-free day I've had in awhile, and he confirmed everything you said and adjusted everything he could. Aaaand... today my head has been killing me!! Go figure. I guess my body was getting used to being out of whack!
