My daughter decided to go pink this summer. Every time we go out people compliment her and gush over her hair style and color. How cute, what fun, she looks so good with pink hair, I wish I could get away with that, I wish I could look so cute in pink, I love it, I wish my daughter could do that but school starts in two weeks, it’s darling!, etc..etc..etc..
Then I am often asked: What will they say when she goes back to school?
I can only reply with a chuckle and “not much!”
Of course dying ones hair pink is not the reason why we homeschool, but it is one of the many extra benefits that have popped up over the years. Like traveling in the off-season! So many little benefits to homeschooling one doesn’t even realize exist until you are enjoying a peaceful life as a homeschooler! 🙂
Today I was lazy for half the day, then I got up and cleaned house. These are the types of random things I find when I go about cleaning.
A home-made kazoo
An erosion experiment on paper clips
A collection of rocks
Nearly dried purple paint, and some random bit of packing foam painted purple
All of these things are of course treasures that can not be tossed.
Here are some crystals we grew during a science experiment a couple of weeks ago, I’m finally finding a new home for this display.
We went for a family walk
A couple of friends who loved my daughter’s hair, stopped by to have a little pink added to their hair.
After the kids played for a LONG time outside and their mama and I enjoyed mama tea chat time, somehow they turned the evening into a dance party. (Horrible photos, iPhone flash is not the best!)
Their dance party got so wild they broke one of my favorite antique bowls. 😦
Luckily no one was hurt! That is most important!
Once the bowl bits were cleaned up they resumed their dance party.
I think we can glue the bowl back together…I have hope! 🙂
Kids are in bed listening to an audio story. Hubby and I are going to snuggle up and chat the night away.
