How Our Family is Unique!


Today's Heart of the Matter Online meme topic is "How Our Family is Unique".  What a great topic!  Every family has their own quirks, foibles, and individual characteristics.  Here are some of ours:

  • We love to read aloud as a family.  We read the Sonlight read-alouds plus several other books every year.  Right now, we are reading Brisingr by Christopher Paolini.  When we go on vacation, we always make sure to have books with us for reading aloud in the hotel room as well as audiobooks for the car.
  • In the morning, we often do "sofa time" where we cuddle up on the sofa for a half hour or so before we get going with chores and schoolwork.
  • We used to be a family with a Doctor Mom and Stay at Home/Homeschooling Dad.  Now we are a family with Disabled/Homeschooling Mom and Tutor Dad.
  • We are a geeky family.  We had a blast earlier this year watching the National Spelling Bee on TV.  Some of our favorite TV shows are from the Food Network and Discovery Channel.

So, what about you?  How is your family different from everyone else?  Check out Heart of the Matter Online for more responses!

Wow--your former working circumstances alone are unique! I do know another family with an MD mom and homeschooling dad, but I'd say that is quite unusual!

Nice to "meet" your family!

One of our favorite things to do is have read aloud books too!

We love the National Spelling Bee and our tv is on Food Network most of the time.
