Have you seen this??

Q: How does a home schooler change a light bulb?

A: First, mom checks out three books at the library on electricity, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life. Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles. Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five-dollar bill. On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five-dollar bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed. And there is light.
It was on a homeschool yahoo group, so I do not know who to give credit to.
Which reminds me, a couple of months ago I took Waid to the dentist, just the 2 of us....and he looks under school age.  I discovered that a high school friend worked at the dentist office, we caught up a bit, and she said "you homeschool, don't you?"  How did she know---I mean, I didn't even have a denim jumper on!!
