Reprints #104-106: The Homeschooling Father
I wrote this set back in June 2007 as a tribute to homeschooling fathers. Because I have no idea what it's like to be a homeschooling dad, I got ideas from a local homeschooling father and friend, Joe. He is a great guy, and has led many group activities ranging from science classes to directing the earliest summer theater productions the kids have done. The parents now have nothing to do with the summer shows (except for mediating disagreements between the young actors and directors) but Joe still runs a number of group classes and now deals with the new challenge of scheduling activities while his older child attends high school and the younger one homeschools. Mom or dad, the homeschooling parent is always the chauffeur.
