What do homeschool kids really think of homeschooling? Some of you who have been reading this blog for a while now might remember my post from last year: Interview with a second grade homeschooler. And you might also wonder how my 2nd grade homeschooler skipped third grade. Well, the truth is, he didn’t. When I wrote that post last year I had a total homeschool mom moment and didn’t realize he was actually in the third grade already. So, now I have for you, as part of our yearly tradition, our interview with a fourth grade homeschooler.
I am 9 years old and I have been homeschooling for 5 years.
Math – Division is my favourite subject in math.
I don’t really know. I do math, phonics, dictation and play.
I’d go quading. (Ride a quad) And do some reading, hang out with friends, read the bible, research things, cook, work out and get a good night’s sleep.

Reading my bible.
Carpentry with my dad, have a booth to sell whittled wood, be a singer.

To do school at home.
When they’re not hyper, yes I do.
No, I wouldn’t get to spend as much time with them and make as good of a bond.
Raising chickens – it makes it feel like you’re living on a farm. I love mainly holding them.
