A Homeschool Christmas Poem

In honor of our annual Baking Day with Kym Smythe and her kids (we baked on Wednesday this year), here is my classic post: a silly ode to Christmas baking with Jonah, my youngest.  Merry Christmas, everybody!

Homeschool Christmas Poem

  • Our Lifepac science lesson beckons, but I hear the call
  • Of snickerdoodles, lemon squares, and chocolate chips for all.
  • You need to learn Earth Science, son, and I would teach you well,
  • But Christmas is four days away, and cookies sure taste swell.
  • We have to fill your brain, indeed, and make you mighty smart,
  • But homeschool tummies also growl, and I still have a heart.
  • So lay your pencil down, my child, and lift a spoon instead,
  • And help me bake some cookies and some moist banana bread.
  • We’ll bake with friends and we will make some memories as well,
  • And when you’re old and gray you’ll have sweet stories, yours to tell.
  • Our homeschool’s here to train your brain but also feed your soul
  • So ditch the schoolwork, wash your hands, and help me scrape this bowl!

  1. 4 days before Christmas and all through Kym’s house
    There was baking -but at my house, OH, what a louse
    I was making Seth slave over algebra equations
    X’s and =’s, but the results were amazing.

    Good thing we have 3 days
    And a sister to boot
    Who will bake some great goodies
    And round up some loot.
