I made the kids some "school" ID's this morning. We do go out and about when we are done with homework and folks always comment about the kids not being in school. Last week Ryan got harassed by the superintendent at the high school football game when he found out he was homeschooled. In Houston we never, ever were questioned. Homeschooling was very common in our area. Since moving to a small town, it seems like EVERYONE notices and wants to comment on the subject.
I read this article from the Homeschool Classroom and it sealed the deal on making some form of ID for the kids. On the back are Texas state laws regarding home education and the phone number to the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. I'm thinking of also adding some snarky little remark in case the kids get hassled!
I made these cards from free scrapbooking downloads from Peppermint Creative!
