out to school: 2/13

April 11, 2013

the big onesthe big onesthe big onesThese girls are crazy and funny. They get the crazy from me and the funny from Ben. The end of the school year is coming and I can see how True is becoming a second grader and Brave a first. Despite the grade difference, they do the exact same curriculum at home with slight changes to accommodate each of their skill level. It’s mostly in reading level where they differ, but Brave is really excelling in her her writing and reading these days, so it’s just a matter of time when they’ll both be at the same place.

When I picked them up from enrichment classes this week, their theatre teacher told me that both of them went up to the front to say their poems. I was so proud. Both girls, especially True, are so shy, so this was a big deal. I’m hoping they grow out of this shyness. Actually, all my girls are pretty bashful, so I think that’s what keeps them sort of behaved in public. The bad thing about it though, is that when meeting people it can come across rude. It takes them about 30 minutes to finally warm up to someone, so they’re pretty boring for the first 30 minutes of any play date.

on true: shirts, misha lulu. pants, gifted from grandmama. shoes, thrifted. on brave: shirt, misha lulu. skirt, misha lulu. shoes, gap kids.

p.s. the new misha lulu spring/summer line is adorable (check some of it out here¬†and here)! don’t you just love brave’s a-line skirt (pictured above)?!

    They are adorable! My 4 year old son is extremely bashful as well and I often worry that it comes across as rudeness too. He also has about a 30 minute warm up! When church friends see pictures of him laughing or being goofy they sometimes comment that they can’t believe that is Gideon because he acts so shy when they try to engage him on Sunday mornings. They will try to say hi to him and he will hide behind my legs and say nothing in return. I’m hoping he grows out of this as well but I know that he is truly a very loving, goofy child! I also think that is why he behaves so well at functions; he is too shy around all those people to run around and misbehave!

    Is that picture in front of the school?? If so, now wonder you have to home school everyone! That scenery looks awful! So sorry for you … good luck with the gardening

    So fun! I love your blog! I homeschool as well, and my oldest 2 girls are in 1st and 2nd this year and almost doing the same things, too. And, I often feel they come across as “rude” with the shyness, as well. Thanks for the meal plans and garden posts, as well — they are so inspiring!

    Awe your girls are getting so big! True I think looks so much like Ben! Do you find that one daughter acts like you or Ben more? Or do you see one more mommys girl / daddy’s girl?
