I plan on giving my daughter a REAL high school experience.
September 20, 2013 at 12:14 PM

I was having a conversation with one of the moms at school while I was waiting to pick up 6yo dd. I was telling her that I had recently pulled 13yo dd out of school and was homeschooling her. What followed was one of the funniest conversations I've had in a while,lol.

Lady: Are you homeschooling her through high school?

Me: More than likely, yeah.

Lady: But she'll miss out on so much! She won't have the high school experiance!

Me: Oh don't worry about that. I have it all planned out. I'm going to shove her in the hallway, knock her books out of her hands, steal her lunch money and call her names. *All of this was said in a very serious voice*

Lady *Jaw drop*

Me: *Laughing* I'm just messin with you. She'll be fine. And quite honestly there are plenty of high school experiances I don't want her having.

    One of the things that does give me pause is prom. I missed my prom, so did my sister and mom. That's one thing I really did want her to experiance :-(

     Our local Homeschool group has a formal dance for teens, so they will still get the experience.

    Have you looked into co-ops? A lot of co-ops have their own prom. I plan on HSing through HS too :)

    Maybe you could start a small high school homeschool group, or teen group.  Then you could coordinate a prom.  I planned the father/daughter ball at our elementary school all 4 years DD was there, so I this is right up my ally ;)  but it could be so fun!  And I bet all the teens around would appreciate it!

    Prom was one thing that made me stop and question it too.  I missed mine, and don't care so much now.  DH went to one and he says it's not even worth the money and effort.  I still hope my kids can do a dance or something though.  The thing about hsers is that it doesn't have to cost hundreds of dollars for them to have a good time!

    I LOVE your remarks to the lady, I'm storing that in the back of my mind.

    LMAO, that is awesome!  I love that and will have to remember it.  I don't know what I am doing about Highschool yet, so I am not going to worry about it right now.  I went to Prom, left way early and went and hung out with friends.  It wasn't worth it to me.

    Nice. I hated high school - I wish k12 or other online schools were an option back then!

     I here the missing prom excuse all the time! You know All you have to do is know someone that goes to the locale high school & have them invite her to go! There is a homeschool prom every year here & it gets bigger & bigger each year they hold it.

    By the way i know so many people that did go to their prom & it was one of the worst nights of their lives so not everyone sees that night as a fond memory.
