Sometimes I wonder why I post every week.
I never have anything earth-shattering to impact. Our weeks are full but very much the same. I don’t write huge lists of resources or free things that I have found or lovely printables I have made. I don’t even really post about anything to do with “How To Homeschool”.
And then I realized…..I really post for Keilee. Although I LOVE my readers and your comments always make my day; this is my love song to her.
It is my hope that one day; maybe when she is homesick and sitting in a dorm room somewhere she will open HomeschoolGirls and smile and remember all the beautiful memories we made and how, although we never had tons of money, we had adventures, lovely adventures. And also I hope she remembers how very deeply and truly she was loved.
So here my sweet girl are this week’s memories……
This picture was in the Newspaper from the Fundraiser Keilee did. This was the biggest stage she has ever been on alone. Our regular theaters are much smaller than this. My little girl on that big ‘ole stage looking right at home. I would have passed out!
She is still editing pictures on Instagram. I love the ideas she comes up with. She sets up her tripod and snaps pictures or occasionally asks me to take some. Then she uses apps to edits things out of it. Then she searches for backgrounds of whatever she is looking for and superimposes it all together.
Beauty and The Beast…
Barbie and Ken. I love how she changed the pictures in the background!! She even put Nomad in there!
More editing pictures. I can’t remember what she did with these.
SPACE AND ROCKET CENTER
I got a pass at the first of the Summer. It was $40 for 1 adult and 2 children unlimited. It is $25 a person to go. We only went 3 times but we definitely got our money’s worth.
We got Britney and off we went. It was an exhibit on “Black Holes” which Keilee LOVES.
The girls had a blast [get it? BLAST???] exploring the museum. Keilee loves the Space Shot and the G4. I have ridden them both in the past but am perfectly happy watching!
I love this one. See the picture where they have their hands on their mouths? The sign said “Please Do Not Touch”. Those wacky homeschoolers!
Another picture that they were being rebels although this was my fault. I wanted a picture of them with the flag and they had to climb under the rail and run out there.
On the way out they were trying to do some walking in sync sorta thing. Epic fail so they decided to skip! We had so much fun and were so glad Brit was able to come with us!!
Keilee and I stay outside a lot! Like all day long. We decided to make a few pictures of us on the blanket. It quickly just got silly. Well at least ONE of us was silly.
1. Reading “Pandemonium“ This is Book 2 in the “Delirium” series by Lauren Oliver. She is LOVING this series. I tried to get her to read it months ago after I read them and she wouldn’t. Now she loves it. Sometimes, like she told me, she isn’t ready for something until she is ready.
2. At our Life Groups sign up at church. Our preacher is a HUGE Auburn fan. We had a contest that whichever team was represented the most, he would wear that jersey to preach in Sunday. Someone made the poster. It shows him as an ALABAMA player. We got a kick out of it. He didn’t.
3. Algebra I outside.
4. Knitting in the hammock
5. Algebra I red circles are correct problems. She got them all right and was very excited. She doesn’t love Math.
7 Cool Homeschoolers Theme was “Fairy Tales” So Keilee wrote a fairy tale of her own with all the characters from other Fairy tales. I thought it was very clever.
So there you have it. This last week of August spent with laughter, learning and friends. What could be better?
Now bring on September!!! One of our favorite months.
