We bought a house in rural Michigan sight-unseen off the internet. My husband quit his job in California and we moved our kids across the country. Dogs. Goats. Chickens. Homeschooling. Crazy. I like my sacraments Catholic and my beer cold.
That looks like something my 10-year-old would wear ALL THE TIME if she could!
She's such a good sport for letting me photograph her and put it on the blog, isn't she?
I am impressed she has pants on. My kids refuse to wear pants....EVER!
chicken chores doesn't sound exactly... shmancy.. so she has GREAT style!
Bet the chickens love the colors!!
Yeah. Pretty sure that's just Lotus, wearing a wig.
That outfit makes me so happy! I have been told that it takes a very special kind of person to pull off that kind of look. I chose to take it as a compliment. My only advice would be that she could probably pack in another color or two if she changed her socks! ;)
If she wore it to the mall, we could peg her as a homeschooler FOR SURE. PM
Hah! No. WAY. She would be just as horrified as I would be, I'm pretty sure :)
Wha?! I thought it was the official uni...
Girl after my own heart. You should see my "going to get the mail" or "shopping for one last thing at the grocery store" outfit. I'm always amazingly attractive ;)
I see all kinds of trends happening here! Color blocking, the use of patterns... yep, fashion forward youngster in the making! ;)
She has pants on! Which is more than I can say about some folks in my house.
She's adorable!Question for you homeschoolers out there - do you make your children wear a uniform or at least a dress code for school, or can they just wear pj's if they want? Do you think they would take school more seriously if they had to wear a uniform, or is the point of homeschooling to be comfy and relaxed?
I make mine get dressed as if they were going to school because I do think they focus better if they do some prep work beforehand. But every kid is different! That chicken "outfit" was right after I dragged her out of bed- pajamas, jacket, boots. But when she got back, she ate and got dressed for real :)
My kids get dressed, make their beds and set the table first thing. I set the timer for 15 minutes and if those three things are not done, they don't get "toppings" for breakfast (brown sugar/raisins on their oatmeal, etc). If we don't do this, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get anything done that day. If I had fewer kids, I might be able to do it without the timer, but with 10 of them, the discipline is a must.
She's going to kill you for posting that in about...um...3 years.
I like it!I think it works for me because this vision seems very possible.There are many things for this style to promote your confidence in your life.Thanks a lot for this content.
