A Classic Homeschool Joke

team effort:
How Does a Homeschooler Change a Light Bulb?

"First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, 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. Then, 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 money. Finally, after building a ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed."

Great joke! I'll share this with those of my family who like to criticize our choice to homeschool. It'll help to break the tense moments.
