Afraid of the “Big-Yellow-Bus!”


You may think that I started homeschooling because of some passion or conviction.  You may think I started homeschooling because I’m the teaching type or because we lived in the slums when Banana Taffy was born, the truth of the matter is that I was afraid.  Afraid of what you ask?

The school bus.  Plan and simple.  How in the world was I going to stick this adorable, helpless, innocent, perfect little person on that big scary school bus?


And how about his brother close behind him…could I stick him on there?


There was just NO WAY I could do it!! 


Just look at that face…

So now you know the truth…no passion, no conviction, no great revelation, just plain and simple fear.

All that said, now I do have passion and conviction and revelation to keep me on this path, but it all started out really simply.  “No busses for us!”

  1. Sweet! I love seeing those guys as little ones! I really hated that the school bus didn't bring my little one home until 4:00! So late! His whole day spent in school. Not fun! Homeschool!

  2. Love it! Our reasons were similar. I was not going to send my son to public school and we couldn't afford private so we kept him home.
