You can be a stay-at-home mom and a homeschooler and still have interests other than making dinner and driving carpool. Right? Anyone...?

A good answer to the question, "Why do you homeschool?"
A mom posted the following video on our homeschool listserv the other day and said she refers people to it when they ask her why she homeschools her kids. "Short answer: so my extremely divergent thinker will retain that skill instead of being forced into convergent thinking."
Sounds like a pretty good reason to me.
Plus, I'm a big fan of Sir Ken (check out his TED talk, "Do schools kill creativity?" below) and am blown away that anyone can illustrate like that. Wow!
