My cousin’s daughter teaches Kindergarten at a school in our town. They have clubs that the kids meet in 2 times a month. One club is “The Princess Club”. She asked Keilee if she would come dressed as Elsa and read a story. Of course Keilee said “YES”. She offered to pay her but Keilee refused.
This school is a Title 1 school which means most of the students come from low income homes. So many of them do not speak English. These kids probably won’t be having Elsa at their birthday parties anytime soon. I wish you could have seen their faces when they walked in and saw “Elsa”. It was priceless. Keilee read to them and then answered questions. She then had her picture made with each one of them separately. It was a wonderful experience for them and for us.
We have always had such wonderful support through Instagram. I have met amazing people both on my blog and there. These are some goodies that a couple of friends sent us this week.
Keilee is still crocheting every night. Here are a few of her latest “Kreations” on her Keilee’s Kreations shop. The Alice doll and the finger puppets are still available.
As some of you know I work from home VERY sporadically. Since we have no house payment, car payment or credit cards our needs are few. But it is after Christmas and Keilee’s birthday and our money is very low. The other day we were coming back from the store when I told Keilee “I am worried about money. If I had another $100 we could at least make it through March”. She told me what she always says, “Mom it will work out. It always does”.
When we got home I went to the mailbox and this was in it. No stamp, no signature just God providing for us through an angel. I should know by now not to doubt.
Keilee’s week has been filled with Sir Thomas More’s Utopia, Macbeth, Geometry 3 days, Animal Behavior, CNN Student News, finishing up her unit on Fungi which she loved, writing in her novel (this has been SO hard. Since she lost her entire book a few months ago it has been hard for her to get back into writing), and working on Bringing Smart Back. Here is the video. I learned things I never knew about Valentine’s Day. She does such extensive research and has learned SO much doing this YouTube channel. Be sure to check out Bringing Smart Back website for lesson plans, recipes and crafts for this week’s episode.
So another week in the lives of “Homeschool Girls” is in the books. This weekend is filled with Elsa parties and VALENTINE’S day!
