Joy has been asking for sometime now to have her own blog. She really is interested in writing and photography. We decided to let her give it a try. She will be using it to share some of her homeschooling adventures, creative writing assignments, her thoughts and interests, as well as some of her family and friends occasionally. She is asking for her own digital camera for her birthday, which is real soon, so she wants to practice on her photography skills too. With close supervision, we feel like this will be a good way for her to gain practice in many skills, including her typing and computer skills, not to mention the spelling and grammar that she will use. When you're having fun, you don't even notice you're learning! I'm sure she would love it if you would stop by and visit. She thought hard on the name, Doodlebug. She has been having fun setting everything up and taking pictures (with our cameras). She asked me to put the link on here today.
And I thought I would leave you with one of our homeschooling moments. Jason took this picture of Joy and me. This is very typical of our days, since we do ALOT of reading. You don't always find Joy right beside me...sometimes she might be lounging on the couch listening or she's even been known to be hanging upside down off the chair or couch, but when it comes to listening skills...she has them! It's amazing what a kid can hear when they can move a little! On this day, just a week or so ago, Joy was snuggled up to me....and Matty (one of our cats) was snuggled up to her. I love the moments that reading together creates. I have to say hands-down, this is my very favorite part of homeschooling!
I hope you all have a great weekend! :)
