I do maths in the morning while eating my toast
And history later (I love that the most)
I read five books a week (though it’s not nice to boast)
I’m a regular, normal homeschooler.
My lessons are finished by noon every day,
Then I go out or stay in the garden and play.
Later, there’s tennis, piano, ballet,
I’m an active, athletic homeschooler.
I visit museums when nobody’s there,
And chat with the staff who explain things with care,
I never have issues with what I should wear,
I’m a bookish and brainy homeschooler.
I converse with the neighbours, the plumber, the vet,
And have meetups (where somebody always gets wet),
I play Minecraft online with some friends that I’ve met,
I’m a savvy and social homeschooler.
My local librarian knows just what I like,
When I ride into town on my scooter or bike,
I even take books when we go on a hike,
I’m creative and clever and nobody’s cooler,
A free-thinking, free-wheeling, free-willed homeschooler.
