You might be a Celtic Homeschooler if:
- rather than "the 3 bears," the dad reads the family excerpts of C.S. Lewis,
or Stephen Lawhead,
or Lloyd Alexander,
or George MacDonald, or...
- Celtic music is the predominant background music of the house.
- storytelling is a major household sport.
- "Classical Civilization" is considered an inferior subject to "Celtic Culture."
- audio story tapes are often heard.
- in word association, "king" is often followed by "arthur."
- you think many things are best learned by memorization, song, or story.
- "St. Patrick" implies more than "shamrocks."
And That's not all:
- Musical instruments bring to mind:
not "electric bass, drum kit, keyboards"
but "Harp, Fiddle, Pipes."
- meals are times for good natured banter.
- triads are considered a natural category for learning and understanding.
- you don't like to see kids stuck at desks.
- you don't want the kids to be too "bookish." (though they may love to read...)
- some type of Celtic Dancing is "normal" in the household.
