Homeschool uniforms?

Do you have specific "uniforms" for your homeschool students on school days?  Gee, I'm lucky if they are up and ready to start school by 9 AM! 

Here's the run-down:

Michael (14) is always the first one ready.  His favorite school uniform is his pajamas!  He will change around lunchtime or just before we need to leave for an outside class, etc.

Melissa (almost 17) is the last one out of bed on any given morning.  She schools in her pajamas or a warm-up outfit.  Today, we enjoyed her company as she joined us in warm-up pants, hoodie (tied tight around her face, and fuzzy socks.... Got to love her!  A fashionista in the making!

Matt (almost 17) begins school in his clothes for the day.  He is usually in his jeans and one of his favorite t-shirts.  He is definitely preparing for his future, as some days he swaps out his t-shirt for a button-down shirt!  Maybe he dresses for the 'drama' of it all!

As for me, I'd love to hang out in my PJ's, but it just isn't feasible.  We do have a "PJ Day" and we all look forward to it!

  1. Ha ha ha. I am definitely looking forward to when my kiddos can dress themselves! (well my younger two anyway). :) Thanks for sharing! Being comfortable is key to learning. ;)

  2. My oldest (17) and myself seem to have the same mindset of "If I'm in my PJs, my brain thinks it is time to sleep/relax - and it won't think/reason/focus like it should"

    my youngest (14) wears his PJs and it works for him, he needs to be as comfy as possible.

    My middle (15)- alternates. figures as much- being the middle kid, I guess...LOL This one had been dressing himself since before he talked! ferociously independent he is.

  3. I love that you give your kids the freedom to dress in their own style. That's what's great about homeschooling - whatever works for YOU!

  4. Ellen, not only do I appreciate the recognition of individuality in your home, but the mother's affection you hold for your children is so evident in your portrayal of each child. I love that! Blessings!

  5. Isn't it fun to see their own personalities develop? I think that's been one of my favorite parts as my kids have gotten older. And yes, you can definitely tell lots about them by the way they dress. :)

  6. I love that you're relaxed enough to go with the flow! I find myself relaxing more each year we homeschool!
