What kind of homeschooler are you?

I took this fun quiz as if I were homeschooling my own children, not necessarily how I was homeschooled. (My family has learned a lot more about different methods and curricula since I've graduated.) I'd be interested in hearing your homeschooling type, if you care to take the quiz!

Abraham Lincoln
You have a Bible and a library card what more could you possibly need? You prefer the Charlotte Mason Method of reading living books for everything: historical fiction, biographies, real histories, nature guides, etc. No soon-to-be-outdated textbooks for you.
