"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

the homeschool picnic


{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  1. The two little blonde girls seem to be the best of friends, but I wonder what the other little girl is doing. It looks like she is pretending to be a tree because of the tree branch she is holding in her hand. I don't know . . . something inside me screams, "But why don't the two little girls want to play with the little girl who is alone?"

    Interesting photograph!

  2. I was wondering the same as Madame Wildflower. I am also thinking that the little blondies are twins. How could they not be best of friends then:o)?

    May you have a wonderful weekend too!

    Blessings!

  3. I managed to homeschool for only a couple of years, 13 years ago, but they are full of wonderful memories of the time we spent together, learning and growing together as a family. We still have some of the projects we worked on while homeschooling. Have a lovely weekend.

  4. I love the company you keep for a picnic, they do look like an entertaining bunch. Hanging out with the younger crowd is may favorite way to spend some time since they do know how to make me laugh. Have a beautiful fall weekend Debbie.

  5. Sunshine, friendship, food (mustard & ketchup imply burgers or hot dogs....). Pause. Savor. Remember!

  10. The cute little brunette is trying to balance her armful of stuff, very cute. I can't see what the other two are doing except walking together unaware of the brunette who could use another hand. JB

  17. We used to have our homeschool group picnic on the first day of public school- it was our "NOT-the-first-day-school-picnic". Lots of fun, even set it up a couple of times.

  18. How cute! I love frisky little girls!
    I got the Elizabeth DVD in the mail today. Jeff and Bill rolled their eyes as I sat and watched it (without knitting!) Isn't her voice fantastic and the way she forgets things and then Meg prompts her . . . SO CUTE?
    Watching her and listening to her fumble with the numbers of the percentage system made me laugh and made me feel a lot more confident, too. Tomorrow, I WILL knit on with confidence!

  19. Adorable picture! How you have captured the personalities of each child...the two who are in their own little world, and the multi-tasker! :-D

  20. Hello - been away for awhile - sorry for that and I have missed a LOT of happenings! This photo reminds me of my little girl when she would try to carry a lot of stuff at one time and would not give up anything to sit a side to come back for another trip.. to cute!

  26. Provoking. And well shot. The kind of shot I'd present to my kids: here is a moment - tell me the story.
