This Is What We Call A Homeschool Experiment

My daughter quietly handed me this note this evening...



My question......Why?

Her answer...

Uhhh....oh kaaaay.

I'm thinking she'll last just until she realizes that she has a friend coming over Sunday. What do you think?

I remember doing things like that- it seemed so important, noble and world changing- for the first 1/2 hour anyways...

She and her friend may have a fun time with trying not to speak. Just watch and see how it plays out.

Jennifer said...

That is gonna be an interesting playdate. :)

Faeden said...

Revel in the quiet... I give her maybe until noon... After all she is your daughter...LOL

JessicaC said...

That's too funny! She'll probably really regret that vow when her friend comes over :-)

This should be interesting, you would never have been able to do it. The most frequent comment from your teachers was she is a great student but she talks to much!!! MOM

Gayle said...

Uh, yeah. Thanks for that Mom. See what kind of trouble you get into when you give your Mom your blog address?

;)

Leanne said...

Wow. I applaud her for her reason for not speaking.

You ought to supply her and her friend with paper and pencils to write each other instead of speaking to each other....

But I don't think she'll make it very long, just because she might forget.

I would keel over if my girls did something like that!

WOW great thoughtful reason & girl, I'd definitely take advantage of that!!!!

I love your blog.

This post hit right at home... I am curious to see if she can really do it.

I want to homeschool my children.

Keep blogging great things. I love to read it!

ROFLOL!!!
I used to give people the silent treatment when I got mad at them, in my mind I was punishing them, but somehow I always felt like the one who was being punished. But I was stubborn, and no matter how ridiculous I realized I was being, I could never give in. Sigh. Not nearly as noble as your dear daughter.
I envision a written modification tomorrow, "due to circumstances beyond my control which were not enumerated by the party of the second part (my mom) prior to the transcription of this pledge, I hereby declare the party of the first part (myself) to be free from all previously enumerated consequences and suspend any previously stated vows until such a date when the party of the third part (my friend) would no longer be adversely affected."
I'm such a nerd.

i wish my son would try that.

You will have to let us know how long she lasts!

TAMI said...

Hilarious!! And lasting 11 hours - nine while sleeping - is even better! Nevertheless, applause for her creativity and willingness to learn!
