Homeschool Expulsion

How does it feel to be expelled from home school?I admire parents who home school their kids. If my parents did it, I would not have been a model student. I am pretty sure I would have been an even worse homeschooling parent. I tip my hat off to friends and family that have had great success at homeschooling.

I have done some illustrations for Apologia Educational Ministries. I have been impressed with the depth and complexity of their text books. There are so many great resources out there today.

Loving your Neighbor the right way

Cartoon of a boy and a teacher. The boy says, "Every time I try to love my neighbor, I get hit with a restraining order!"

Prayer and Going Back to School

Cartoon of a mom and son. The disgruntled son says,

It can be tough to have faith that can move mountains when you have to go back to school. I probably prayed a prayer similar to the boy’s prayer in this cartoon when I was in elementary school.

School was stressful for me. I never knew if my pencil was really a Number Two Pencil. If I wasn’t so nervous, I may have had the wits to actually check the inscription on the pencil. I should’ve realized almost all school pencils are number two pencils. If I just got that through my head, maybe school wouldn’t have been so stressful. Then again, maybe I should have just prayed about my stress!

I drew this for the Church of God Newsletter.

Why students hate the balanced calendar

He says, "If they're going to make me go to school in the summer, I'm going to dress like it's still summer." Cartoon of two boys waiting at a bus stop.

Once upon a time in Indiana, kids didn’t go back to school until after the Labor Day weekend. But today, as of August 1, 2013, some school systems are already in session.

I don’t know if the “balanced calendar” will help students raise their grades. But I do know for many, it has sure raised their ire!
