Homeschool described in Anne of Green Gables GIF's

Muahahaha...This is going to be fun! I homeschool and I love Anne of Green Gables (the book, mostly, but the movie is good too. :) 

1. You look up from reading your book in the morning and realise...you should have started school ten minutes ago!

2. You open your Algebra and see what you have to do today. (This is seriously accurate. :)

3. When your sibling is trying to get your attention--and distract you from your schoolwork--and you must focus.

4. When your mom says you're going to go to town (or somewhere else) and so you don't have to do school for the rest of the day. Anne and Diana, my siblings. Gilbert is me because I am not going out, I am going to do school. :)

5. This happens often enough during school time around here...just with notebooks or textbooks, not slates. (Okay, so when it's textbooks we only pretend to smash it hard.)

6. When someone you thought was your friend makes fun of homeschoolers...and they know you're homeschooled. 

7. When you and your (public schooled) friends are arguing about homeschool and you win the argument by pointing out that you've homeschooled for many years and they've never homeschooled and so you would know, not they. (This has happened to me before.)

8. When you tell a half-truth (about something school related, such as that pineapples grow on trees :) to one of your siblings and wink at another of your siblings about to correct you so they will know you're "joking". 

9. When someone says homeschoolers aren't socialized and you want to react like this, 
but you are socialized and civilized so you react like this:

10. When you find out someone else is homeschooled too, and they understand.

I hope you all enjoyed it! 
Are you homeschooled? Do you like Anne of Green Gables? Or both? Could you relate to this post?

    3. The book is definitely better, and the movie has many inaccuracies, but it is still good!

  4. This was GREAT, Rae! I love these kind of posts! And your choice of gifs was perfection.

    The first two are hilarious!!! And smashing text books (carefully, of course) over your sibling's head! Haha. I can SO see us doing that.

    7. Oooh! I like this one, too! "Humph. Just try and refute that argument."

    8. Oh, yes, yes, yes! That is SO spot on. That WINK! Haha. The worst part is when your sibling fails to understand your subtle hints and spills the beans anyway!! That's happened in our family before. :P

    Oh! No. 9 is perfect! I LOVE that one. SO FUUUUUNNNY!

    Thanks for this post, Rae! I really enjoyed it. And yes, I was homeschooled, and I've seen the Anne movies, so I can definitely relate to this! :D

  5. Yesss It's nice that other people understand too! I mean, I guess it's a homeschool thing! I didn't know you were homeschooled (maybe I did if it's on your profile...I don't remember...); that's awesome!
    Yes, with #8, that is what happens half the time, and then it's like in Pride and Prejudice, "Why are you winking at me Mama?" "Wink at you?! Why should I wink at you, child?" :)
    I'm glad you liked it!

  7. Loved it! Probably the worst question anyone can ask a homeschooler is "How do you socialize?" Well, goodness, how do I answer that? I'm so unsocialized I don't know the answer. Maybe (brace yourself for the shock)I go outside LIKE A NORMAL PERSON.
    And remember, Anne was homeschooled for a while.
