When I was a new home schooler around eighteen years ago, I would get these homeschool curriculum catalogues in the mail. I LOVED home school curriculum catalogues...they brought me to a happy place as I slowly turned the pages to see all the possibilities. I used to especially enjoy the pictures on the covers. A lovely dining room with a china cabinet in the background, two well dressed children dutifully doing their school with a plate of cookies on the table and a mom in a great outfit with earrings and matching necklace smiling behind them. Ahhhh! Euphoria ensued.
But as the years went on and I found that home schooling seven children for many years is sometimes a thing of the trenches, is not for the faint of heart, and most days does not involve anything remotely approaching cookies and earrings, I began to amuse myself one day. What would WE put on the front of a home school catalogue? Hmmmm. Here are some of our ideas....
