Hey girl…..

by Edie Wadsworth on June 12, 2012

Edited to add:  I joined my friend Rhoda’s summer porch party and added a few pics of my screened porch to this post!

In case you’re on the fence about homeschooling this year, I thought this might help push you right over the edge.
You’re welcome.

Homeschoolers?  Bringing sexy back.  One over due library book at a time.

And btw, Ryan Gosling?  Homeschooled.



Here’s more where those came from!

This made me never, ever want to be homeschooled. OH MY GOSH! That sounds like so much work. Well, except for the wearing pj’s for 2 days in a row. That sounds just about heavenly. Parking a fifteen passenger van would make me cry.


2 Leslie H June 12, 2012 at 10:22 pm

LOVE this…made me laugh! Especially the lamination one! ;)


3 Julie June 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Me too! That was my favorite. Especially considering I had JUST been laminating something before I came to check my Facebook and saw this!


4 Kellie June 12, 2012 at 10:30 pm

My husband I read these together and laughed. We are homeschoolers.

I only have three children, but I would love a 15 passenger panel van.


5 Nan Tedesco June 12, 2012 at 10:35 pm

EDIE!! I am screeeeeeaming laughing! so all my family came RUNNING in here to see what was SOOO funny! How appropriate as I was at a little seminar today discussing most ALL of
This..well, sans the “man” part…Ha ha! Just when I was needing a fresh approach – you came
To my aid! Hee hee! I will never LAMINATE the same again!


6 Kim B. June 12, 2012 at 10:39 pm

Ha ha ha ha ha!!! Oh goodness Edie you make me LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! Those would make some GREAT T-Shirts :) Now everytime I hear, “Hey Girl” I’m going to think of you!


7 the farmer's wife June 12, 2012 at 10:40 pm

LOVE IT! I did not know he was homeschooled! Funky fresh! I agree with Leslie H, the laminating one has me rolling : )


8 Julie June 12, 2012 at 10:43 pm

laugh. out. loud. have to pin now.


9 Southern Gal June 12, 2012 at 10:44 pm

You are so good at bringing a smile to my face! Was he really homeschooled? That makes it that much better. Thanks for the laugh.


10 Jessie @ Dream and Differ June 12, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Hey Girl~ You just made me snort Diet Coke! If I had any doubts about homeschooling left, they are gone now! And the bookshelves one… I know Ryan was talking to me with that one.


11 Mimi June 12, 2012 at 11:01 pm

Hilarious!! A wonderfully witty and fun way to get your point across!


12 Kristen June 12, 2012 at 11:13 pm

My husband and I read this together and we both had tears running down our cheeks from laughing!!!


13 Sarah June 12, 2012 at 11:21 pm

The ironic thing is I AM on the fence about homeschooling next year…or was! Hilarious, but my van only sits 8 :)


14 Brandi June 12, 2012 at 11:22 pm

If this had a like button, I’d hit it twice!


15 Rhonda June 12, 2012 at 11:54 pm

17 Julie June 13, 2012 at 12:24 am

Love, love, love this!! He is my favorite too!! Great motivation for all us teachers…especially us (slightly OCD) English teachers! ;-D


18 Julie June 13, 2012 at 1:04 am

Oh man.

Spit take the coffee ALL OVER THE COMPUTER.

Literally – JUST came into the office after telling my husband that we have to discuss the curriculum plans for next year. He just LOVES it when we have those discussions. And chalkboard paint. Oh yeah. On everything that sits still.

Thanks so much for the laugh!!

29 michelle@Life on the Funny Farm June 13, 2012 at 10:22 am

You can tell that we homeschool since I have stellar spelling skills. I meant homeschool not hameschool.

I am DYING over here.
He was home schooled? stop the bus! Tell me it’s true!!!


38 Smills June 13, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Funny! Did you know he was homeschooled for only one year – first grade. He was also a high school dropout. Shhhh… Don’t tell your kids!


39 Patti Brown June 13, 2012 at 5:33 pm

You just made this old grandmother smile!


40 April @ illistyle June 13, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Hi-lar-ious! Made me proud to be a homeschooling mama!


53 Shonda July 1, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Very, very funny! Brings back memories from our homeschooling days. We are now in the empty nest time of life. Can be kind of lonely, if you don’t stay busy. Husband just bought a 4 wheeler, so maybe we can fill a little of our time having fun.


54 Allison July 2, 2012 at 10:02 am

As a homeschooling mom of 7 kids, this post had me laughing like I haven’t laughed in a long time! It made me realize a little more humor in my day would be a very good thing…


55 Pam Clark July 29, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Edie, I just discovered your blog 2 days ago and OMG, you are my new favorite!!! First, let me say that as I am a 3rd grade public school teacher, I’m not a supporter of homeschooling, but this post is HILARIOUS!!! Love it! As I read about your homeschooling goals, curriculum, and philosophy though, I do agree with those things and soooooo wish that we could work the way you do at school. Tests, tests, tests……so much time that could be spent learning, experiencing, and discussing.

Also, the pictures of your bedroom convinced me to go graphite in ours. We’re in the midst of a whole house renovation (slow going) and I’m working on the furniture end of things while my husband has the huge task of the actual work. I really love the colors and uniqueness of your rooms.

Thanks for sharing and though I’ll be lurking about reading your posts and looking at your pictures, I promise I’m not a stalker and hope my praise of your blog doesn’t sound psycho!
Best wishes and blessings ~ Pam
