Most of us are familiar(at least kinda) with the song "I will Survive". If I am not mistaken, that song is referring to suviving after a break up. Well I found this version of the song today that really fits perfectly for me(especially the 1st year!). I am sure there are plenty of other homeschool moms that can relate......

Thought this was cute! I Will Survive (the first year of homeschooling) *Or* any year homeschooling Originally written and produced by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris
Originally performed by Gloria Gaynor
Mercilessly altered with apologies by Natalie Criss

First I was afraid
I was petrified.
Kept thinking I could never teach
´Cause I´m not certified.
But we spent so many nights
Reteaching homework that was wrong.
I grew strong,
so now I teach my kids at home!
We study math
and outer space.
I just kept on despite the fear
with a big smile across my face.
I bought a set of Base Ten blocks.
I bought books with answer keys.
My parents think we´re nuts,
but they don´t even bother me
Come on, let´s go
walk out the door.
We´re on the road now,'
cause we´re not home much anymore
My friends would laugh and say
we´d be unsocialized
I heard one mumble
that I´d give up by July.
Oh no, not I!
I will survive!
As long as I know how to read
I know we´ll be alright.
I've got all my life to learn.
I've got energy to burn.
and I'll survive.
I will survive.
It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart.
Decided to attenda play date
at the local park,
and I met oh so many moms
who offered eagerly to help.
They used to cry.
Now they hold their heads up high,
and so do we!
My kids are cool!
They´re not those chained up little people
stuck inside at school.
So if you feel like dropping by
and just expect us to be free
you´d better call ahead first
´cause we´re probably busy!
