Eyeballs! Cow eyeballs to be exact. That today, my dear readers, is what I had the pleasure of dissecting in class today. It was weird to say the least.  The squishy, yet hard texture was a bit odd, but being able to see what makes me "See" close up and inside, what a neat and a bit gross experience.

Now that I am in college myself, it makes me think even more about my children's educational future. Since I homeschool, I have had those persons in the past inquire how my children will be able to go to a good college. Thank goodness I have enough sense to do a little research instead of allowing other on lookers to put false and ridiculous ideas into my mind.

The truth is that there are so many homeschool-friendly colleges out there. Still, I can see where people new to the idea of homeschooling, especially accidental homeschooler could allow their fears to get the best of them.

 So, if you were one of those people who are still wondering, worried, etc. Then take a moment and do a little Internet research. Call a local college or just speak to other homeschool moms who have already have children in/and graduated from a college.
For myself I am not worried. I know my children will one day be off to college. Thankfully,  my "Momma heart" is glad it is still several years away ;)

Until next time...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Your post reminded me of a horrifying experience in science class when my lab partner was fooling around during our eye-ball dissection lesson. He refused to put his safety goggles on and then had some sheep eye-ball literally squirt INTO HIS unprotected eye!!

Poor kid. Foolish kid since he was trying to show off and not use his goggles. Ended up having to go the hospital to get his eyes flushed. EEK!

Needless to say- our class never got to finish our dissection.
