What do homeschoolers do all day?

Most people who ask this question are operating out of their own public-school experience and are hoping to be handed a schedule showing reading at nine o'clock, math at ten, history at eleven, and so forth. In fact, many homeschoolers do begin by patterning their homes after the public schools, but few of us do it for long, because we quickly find better ways. Home school is not just 'school' at home; it's a completely different approach to education. We feel that life itself is the best possible school.
