    We Will Survive!!!!


    I Will Survive (the first year of homeschooling)...sing to the tune "I Will Survive!" 

    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 attend

    a 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



    Just a little humorous inspiration as we travel the journey...Enjoy!

    Love it! Just what the naysayers need to hear. We will survive! Excellent. I'll have this tune in my head for the rest of the day.
