Homeschool Memoirs #9: The _____ Family

Each family has something special about them… we’re all unique in that way! LOL! I know my family is like no one you’ll ever meet and I’m sure you all can say the same thing! Sometimes God has a sense of humour when creating families, but he has a plan in everything. Isn’t comforting to know we were designed with purpose?


This week’s theme is about your family. Don’t worry. I’m not going to make you write a long essay about all the great things your family does. Just something little diddy that I know everyone will have fun with!

Watch the youtube video below and then take this song and add your own words, about your family. The end of the first three lines should rhyme. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Lryics to “A Homeschool Family

Some people say were goofy
Mysterious and spooky
Our neighbors think were kooky
A homeschool family

We drive a white Conversion
We learn about the Persians
Our six year olds a surgeon
A homeschool family.

We learn about Creation
And classis education
Were sponsoring a Haitian
A homeschool family.


The parents are the tutors.
We build our own computers.
We never go to Hooters
A homeschol family.

Have recess in the foyer
And then we read Tom Sawyer
Our nine year olds a lawyer,
A homeschool family.

We never leave our dwelling.
Our children are excelling.
They’re champions at spelling
A homeschool family.

They’re happy and they’re homey
No one can call them phoney
They’re all together looney
The Dixon Family

Their house is on a farm
No need for alarm
We really cause no harm
The Dixon Family


So get on your internet
You can visit them yet
We hope you won’t get upset
The Dixon Family

I had a lot of fun writing that…. to understand the last verse you’ll have to come visit me! LOL Sorry this is late!

    This could take a while.

  6. This was a great theme for the HM! I love this song. Great words about our family, Jocelyn. That’s funny. :)

    Great work!


  7. That was tough!!! But fun :)

  8. I was beginning to wonder if there was going to be an assignment today or if I had done something stupid that I couldn’t get to it.

    This one is kinda intimidating but I’m going to give it a whirl. I’ll come back to fill in Mr Linky when I’m done.

    Thanks for the fun.

  16. This was sooo much fun!!!!!!Thanks girl!!!

  17. Great Theme, Jocelyn

    I was really debating over doing it or not. Poetry is not my forte.
    I visited other posts, got an idea and posted my meme.
    It’s really a lot of fun. They are all wonderful themes.

  18. This was so FUN! Thanks for this one.

  19. I’m so happy I found HSM today. I couldn’t find it yesterday.
    Oh, J, this is clever. I’ve got to hand it to you, you are an imaginative gal! Kudos to you!

  20. This was my first time participating in homeschool memoirs. I love this video and have seen it several times before.
    This was fun!

  21. THis was so much fun!! 😀

  22. This is the first time I have ever done something like this. I am glad I found your site. This is great.

  23. Wow, I finally decided to do a homeschool blog assignment and look what I get…I had my kids do it instead.
    Someone has to clue me in on how to do these. Do we just check this site every day to see our assignment? Is there a way to get it mailed so I’ll remember?

  24. I haven’t seen anyone else’s. I wanted to wait till mine was posted. I finally got it up on my sight and am looking forward to reading all the other contributions later tonight. Thanks for the fun and forcing us to think!

  25. The kids helped with the first 3 verses, and then I made up the rest…
    it was NOT as easy as it seemed!
