When I wrote my last post I was desperately trying to avoid having a panic attack. (I’m only half joking) I’m glad to report that not only did I not have a panic attack but we also had a lot of good times over the course of the last few weeks. I didn’t take many pictures since we were so busy having fun but here’s a few from the plays and Christian’s graduation.
The plays were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest and King Midas and The Touch of Gold.
|Josiah – King Absent Minded|
|Christian – Prince Good Hearted|
|Here they are on stage Prince Good Hearted trying to take
King Absent Minded to his daughter “Snow White”
… or was it “White Snow”?
|Christian was also a Greek fisherman in King Midas|
Christian graduated on Saturday. Traditionally our local homeschool group has a commencement ceremony on Mother’s Day weekend. It seems to be a good weekend for families that need to travel and it doesn’t conflict with any other graduations.
Each graduate and his parents have 10 minutes (you can use less but not more). They all did slide shows and after the slide show the graduate and his parents go up front and can say whatever they want and present their graduate with his diploma. I was so very glad that Carl did all our talking and kept it short and sweet.
|Each graduate has a 6 foot round table that he can use to display memorabilia.
It was fun seeing all the tables and seeing what was important to each graduate.
|And here he is… our first graduate…|
|…and his diploma.|
I’ve spent the last few day enjoying not “having” to do anything more than just the very basics. In between doing the basics I’ve been thinking a lot about the last 13 years of homeschooling. Things we did wrong, things we did right, things I worried about needlessly and what all of that means for the rest of my children.
I’m hoping to be sharing some of those thoughts with you in the future …
