Today we had a field trip to Jewel Foods. It wasn't really my kind of trip, but in the interest of participating in our fledgling homeschool group I decided to go. I am not sure there was a ton of learning that they don't already get when we grocery shop, but the kids enjoyed it.
Our tour guide was super nice, and as we visited each department she would introduce whoever was working there and then say, "This is a group of kids who are homeschooled. They came on a tour today." Most of the time the people just said, "Hi" or "How nice", but on two separate occasions a worker said, "You don't look like homeschoolers." The first time I though I heard wrong, but the Mom next to me repeated it. The second time I began to wonder if it was an April Fool's Day joke. I mean I know we left our prairie skirts at home, but... to actually say that takes balls. Of course I am the first to admit that I don't fit the stereotype. Anyway, it does verify that that this homeschool group is a good fit for me.
