You know you're a homeschooler when....

~ You see an empty shoe box and think diorama.
~ You see a file folder and think lap book.
~ You send your kids outside and record it as Health.
~ You enjoy reading homeschooling books from the library.
~ You have a collection of binders for each subject.
~ You can turn a dental appointment into a field trip.
~ You can integrate Bible, math, reading, spelling, handwriting, history, art, health, and science into a unit study without really trying.
~ You adjust to the learning styles of your children, whether they are creative, kinesthetic history buffs or visual, concrete sequential mathematicians. You know what these words mean because you’ve read the books on learning styles.
~ When you’re out in public during the school day, you have a ready answer for people who ask, “No school today?”
~ You’re with your kids 24/7 yet wish you could spend more time with them.
~ You stand in awe as your kids become inseparable because they are best friends.

I got this list from here. I found the lapbook one particularily funny considering how lapbook crazy I am this year. Lapbooks are awesome.

That's such a great list, I was so glad my mom homeschooled me and my siblings and I can't wait to homeschool my own daughter!
