Happy Mail, Elsa, Bringing Smart Back, All the Crochet…

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.

Keilee's Kreations

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.

 

Valentine’s Day

So another week in the lives of “Homeschool Girls” is in the books.  This weekend is filled with Elsa parties and VALENTINE’S day!

Homeschooling Rocks!

“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ~ T.H. White, The Once and Future King

  1. Seeing Keilee being Elsa for those sweet kids has made my day. 🙂 And thank you for the reminder that God always provides. I bet the person who gave you that gift feels SOO good, too. They have spread so much happiness around the world! Have a wonderful weekend, both of you.

  2. I adore hearing about how God blesses and provides. We have had times when we have prayed for provision and He has provided it down to the last penny. Thank you for sharing – it really blessed me today xx

  3. I always enjoy catching up with you. I am glad you were so abundantly blessed this week. You all are a wonder and I am sure your community is much better for your presence in it.
    Blessings, Dawn
