Wednesday, June 21, 2023
This week is the finish line for the homeschool year. Portfolios must be done by Monday and paperwork submitted by the end of next week. My goal every year, of course, is to set things aside for the portfolio as the year progresses. Wouldn't that make things so much easier? Why yes, yes it would. A novel idea, for sure. AND YET, never have I ever done that.
So, like the haze left from the Canadian wildfires, I search through the smog of this past year for proof that this was a year full of learning and growing, knowledge and maturation. (I don't remember what I did last week, let alone last year sooooooo....)
It only makes sense, then, that I procrastinate from this very necessary (and fast approaching) deadline by blogging photos of an evening stroll. Incidentally, I didn't want to do that either- (I was so tired. It was a long day. I just wanted ice cream. And to put my feet up.) but I was better for it in the end.
Maybe portfolios are like that too?

|Memorial Day brownie pizza- despite it's appearance, it isn't burnt to a crisp. :-)|
|First bouquet of the season! It was slim-pickings in the flower circle, but hopefully enough to brighten the spirit of one whose spirit needed brightening.|
|A Cousin Campout at the Lake: in which Littles swim incessantly and Mamas do a lot of yawning. Still have not figured out the secret to actually SLEEPING at a campout. Or how Little people can keep chugging along without it.|
|Beautiful Adele' came along to the campout even though she wasn't feeling super hot. Here she is looking all lovely and cheerful despite the fact that she would be sicker than a dog just an hour later.|
|A spent bouquet of lilacs, dying gracefully|
|(never thought to use the table that way...)|
|...still not writing...|
We've nicknamed it GLupper Night (get it?!)...
and this Glupper night we invited other family over for a secret birthday celebration for Gary.

|Ineke is a poet and she didn't even know it. ;-)|
