Humor and Homeschooling
Humor and Homeschooling is so important and helps you get through the tough times!
“Humor is something that thrives between man’s aspirations and his limitations. There is more logic in humor than in anything else. Because you see, humor is truth.” ~ Victor Borge
I like to think that I have a killer sense of humor.
My kids are very funny too (I’ve trained them well).
My husband still makes me laugh after 33 years of marriage by singing 70’s songs at appropriately funny times, verbatim and on-tune. We laugh a lot. And that is by design.
Life is hard, it’s difficult, it’s full of tragedy. When we run after God we get to share in His glory and His Majesty, and we also draw closer to the things that grieve Him and break His heart.
We do our fair share of crying around here, too. Life and intentionally raising our kids is serious business and sometimes cry worthy.
And while laughter and humor is not exactly joy, it is the cousin of joy and refreshes our spirits and perspective.
With that in mind, we have been very intentional about laughter, sharing jokes and funnies and cuteness that causes us to smile. We look for humor and share it as often as possible!

We actually think about humor as an Elective of sorts- a great way to develop our understanding of tropes, play with words and look at all angles of a situation. Logic and Poetry are great ways to develop these skills. Looking for more great electives? We’ve got you covered!
