I'm a Minority

I was reading recently that families with more than four children make up only 2.5% of American families. Estimates are that homeschoolers make up only 1 to 1.5% of the school population. No wonder people gasp for air when I tell them that I'm a homeschooling mother of seven!

I suspect that there is a big overlap of homeschooling families in the 4+ children group. If we see a larger family like us in our travels the majority homeschool.
Our children have become quite adept in determining homeschooled families from a distance - family size, manner of dress, general manners and demeanor.
