Homeschooler to world: I have a dream

I’m sure most of you who hadn’t already stumbled across these videos when I started posting them have gone ahead and watched all four by now, but I figure they’re worth a second viewing…or even a third.

Now the world is collapsing for these young homeschooled kids, who sort of seem like they could live next door.  Or, uh, maybe in my house as I watch ninja Gary jump around with his canned air. But he has a dream:

My hope is that one day females will learn to appreciate homeschoolers.  Sure, it may take them awhile, until they’re old and mature, to learn to appreciate the fact that we have read Lord of the Rings five times.  That we can spell big words like “arachnophobia.”  Or that we know that Homer wasn’t always a Simpson.

Discover the dream he clings to.

And then, just when you thought it was safe to email a girl in the basement of your home, well, what does a homeschooler do when they get out into the big, wide world?  I guess you need to get psyched up to leave the basement first.

You can do it Grant.  We’re all pulling for you.

And just as I thought it was safe to post, I noticed number five is already up.  Remember that Samantha was homeschooled, too?  Well, she has a father.  And as weird as homeschooled kids are, you know the parents have got to have issues.

If you would like to keep track of these homeschoolers taking their first tentative steps into the world outside their cloistered existence, you can keep an eye on PaperClip Films videos.


And don’t forget to check out this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling.
As well as my giveaway for an Apologia Biology text book.

Oh yeah.Love it. And any HS video that can work in a little Journey is a “10” in my book. Number 5 is also great. Hope they keep the awkward moments coming.

I didn’t like 5 so much, until they got to the end. It was a perfect ending, and probably worked better with whatever it was that I didn’t really like about the rest of it.

My husband jokes he wants to buy a gun for when our daughters start attracting attention from the opposite sex. He doesn’t want to use it for anything, but he wants to sit at the table and clean it anytime a young man comes by.

Ha! Dana, your husband’s about seventeen years to late to be the first to use that one. The first time I brought my husband home, my Dad took him out to his workshop and cleaned one of his guns while they chatted. He said Dad was very cordial, but the message was loud and clear.

It won’t frighten away the good ones. 🙂

Of course, now that our Butterfly is getting up there, we’re considering asking Dad for a loaner.

One more, then I promise to quit!

Regarding Butterfly:

My husband: “Maybe she can date when she’s thirty-five.”

Butterfly’s Godfather: “Nuns don’t date.”

I don’t think he was joking.

Dana, I’d never seen these clips before. I can’t wait to share them with the boys tomorrow. LOL

As always, I’ve enjoyed my time spent on your blog. Always thought provoking….I’d love to meet some day in person.


These are so cute!
