You don’t need to know your states to be a medical doctor.
“Are you ready for your states identification test?” I challenged my homeschooled daughter.
“Kind of. . . sometimes I forget the little states,” she bashfully replied.
Ha! So do I! And how to spell them too! You don’t need to know your states to get through medical school. I know. Not where Masachusetts is. (No. Massachusetts.) Not that, although this week I learned that too. But I know that you can get through medical school not knowing which one’s New Hampshire and which one’s Vermont. Even if you’ve been there.
Knowledge gaps exist. When I started homeschooling seven years ago, I told myself I would remedy those gaps. My children would not have the gaps I had coming out of school. Everything I wanted to learn and didn’t, I would pour onto them. Beautifully, life smashes your nose up, puts dark hair where it doesn’t belong, and creates a new face for you.
THEN, you’re CoverGirl material.
