Last week I was Inspired by Amy from The Hmmm… Schooling Mom. So, I decided I wanted to interview my second grade homeschooler. After reading the interviews with her two boys; Interview With a Ten-Year-Old Homeschooler & Interview With a Nine-Year-Old Homeschooler, I was curious to see how my own homeschooler of similar age would respond to her questions.
Izzy is currently 8 years old He has been homeschooled his whole life. During this time his older brother, T, has gone back and forth between school and homeschooling. Mickey Blue and Little Lou, Izzy’s 2 younger brothers, aren’t school-aged yet. Izzy is a complete sweetheart with a great sense of humour and he’s always goofing around and trying to make us laugh. He took this interview very seriously though and it was really fun to see another side of him.

Answer: I get a lot of free recess because most kids don’t get that much in regular school.
Answer: Nothing. I love everything about homeschooling.
Answer: Math, phonics, bible, sometimes play, go outside and play, sometime eat lunch while I’m working, play drums on Monday and Tuesday.
Answer: A day when I’m feeling really into school and I have a day off from dictation or copywork because I worked really hard and finished a poem or writing a letter. If we get to go for a long hike or go swimming. And getting to jump on mom’s bed with Mickey Blue (2).
Answer: Yes and no.
Answer: Because I could meet more people and make lots of friends. But I wouldn’t want to go because of bully’s, having 6 hours of school because we only have to do an hour of school at home.
Answer: Go on more hikes, and have more days to go swimming after school, have more time to spend with mom.
Answer: Seeing – like seeing someone do it first.
Answer: Singing, carving (wood), archeologist, maybe a carpenter.
Answer: Probably. It depends what my wife would want for them.
Answer: It’s doing school at home and just being registered with a program but not actually working with a program.
Answer: Yes and sometimes no. Sometimes Mickey fights me too hard and hits and kicks me. Sometimes he loves playing with me a lot.
Answer: Probably not. I wouldn’t get to see them as much.
Answer: I think writing. I like writing stories and I think it’s really fun and it’s amazing to be able to do it. It’s the best thing in the world!
Pretty insightful little guy! I love that he is so creative. He has an amazing imagination and he gets to spend his days using it. And I had no idea he wanted to be an archaeologist! Time for a unit study on rocks and fossils!
