What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday....Learning

So sorry to get the linky up so late today!

I was sorely lacking for inspiration this week-I originally thought it would be very easy to do, since we are homeschoolers after all, but everytime I had an idea it seemed so very...ordinary. Also-I have noticed that my right eye is doing a really bad job at focusing these days (hoping that a new eye prescription will remedy that because if I end up being unable to focus photos I think my world might come crashing down around me. WAaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh. Let's hope for the best; let's think HAPPY THOUGHTS!) I took most of these photos this very morning after noticing most of the photos from this week had been blurry as all get out. Which is why this post is coming up so late. *blush* Again, sorry.

Anywho. LEARNING was the theme last week!

*Brought the camera with us on our weekly library trip. There was an old man sitting in a corner chair with the most fabulously defined wrinkles, gnarled fingers, long-scratchy beard and dark plastic framed glasses. The same man who is there the same time we are every week, who sits in the corner chair completely lost in his book. He would have made for a fabulous picture...but I wasn't brave enough to ask him. I am such a wuss.

* a book. (on a mirror) (book check: the Discoverers)

* this year I am going to try and learn how to do our own taxes. We haven't moved. We don't own anything. We don't have our own business. We aren't sitting on millions of dollars of investments. It SHOULD be easy, right?! yikes

* the Panda. Writing.
Totally unrelated, but funny nevertheless: Grandma stopped by for a visit and was telling a story about her neighbor who had a fire. "The chimney didn't have a proper...." and then she stopped to think about the word to use when Andrew piped up: "A PROPER NOUN!!!" It was too funny.

* A lesson I try to remember daily. I can talk myself blue in the face, but when it comes down to it, the things I am doing are what my children are hearing.

In order to participate in these Foto Friday challenges, you must take a photo (or several) pertaining to the challenge WITHIN the challenge week and post it/them to your blog. When you do, please link back to this blog {you may use the button if you like} so that perhaps we can get lots of participants! (Because, you know, the more the merrier!) Then simply link to your Foto Friday post with Mr. McLinky here so that we all can visit you and compare notes...

For those of you new to this blog (or to Foto Friday's in general), each Friday we get a new photo challenge to work on for the week and we post our photos the next Friday and link back up here. Whatever your skill level, the goal is to get behind your camera and to begin, as you practice, to view subjects in a different light. To extend yourself and your concepts and ideas. To create ART instead of just snapping a picture. And to do it all while having FUN.

This week's Foto Friday challenge is.....
