I’ve reiterated many times on my little blog that I started this as a means to keep the grandparents and extended family active and engaged in the kids’ lives as they are growing up in Texas. It was never meant to be a how-to blog on homeschooling, parenting, Christianity, or any other topic. It is just the musing of our rather boring day to day adventures.
One of the neatest blessing as a byproduct of the blog has been the joy in looking back at the kids’ lives over the past seven years. Especially as we get closer to Caleb’s graduation it has been fun to look and him growing up.
With this being his senior year we have taken the time to do a few of his favorite things before he heads off to college. But today, Abigail had softball practice and it was one of the few weekends when Caleb didn’t have homework with his Dual Credit class, or volunteer work at the Sixth Floor, or work with Metro Relief, or church event, or fill in the blank with other time consuming events.
My sweet son asked Frankie to pick what she wanted to do today. At her direction we headed out to the Dallas Museum of Art to see their impressionist Bouquets exhibit. This was the last weekend for it to be on display.
Later we had lunch at Klyde Warren Park and then met up with Jon and Abigail to see Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Several years ago we saw a children’s stage production of this popular children’s book and it has remained one of Frankie’s favorites.
It was probably not the typical day a 17 year boy would have selected but I love his heart that he would ask his sister what she wanted and then willingly go along with her selection. She’s going to miss that boy!
