Most have seen the Ryan Gosling photos with captions about homeschooling around the internet. The meme (an idea that is spread from blog to blog) was created on Tumblr. You can submit your own entry or just sit and enjoy all the creative ones submitted. I have to tell you that I actually LOL when reading these pictures. My kids are always asking me why I am sitting at my computer laughing out loud. Sometimes they get it and sometimes they don’t. I also have to say that I was attracted to the meme because Ryan Gosling is a cutie pie. Can I say that? I think I can admit that. What I did know was that Ryan Gosling was homeschooled.
As the story of his childhood goes, he did attend public school where he was bullied. I read that in first grade he could not read and was also diagnosed with ADHD. Is any of that true? Who knows, you can’t believe most of what you read. I do not know. I looked up what I could but did not find much most likely because he was homeschooled so briefly. Please let me know what you find. Apparently, his mother took him out of school and homeschooled him due to the constant abuse of other students. He was only homeschooled a year but it seemed to make the right impression on him. After all a man who is quoted as saying, “I think the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy whenever and wherever I want.” certainly has the right idea on life, right?
I highly recommend hopping over to Tumblr and visiting Homeschool Ryan Gosling for some laughs. I am certain you will relate to the crazy quotes on the pictures from fun loving homeschoolers! You may want to consider submitting some of your own.
