The Swing ~ Twirly Tuesday {formerly My Daughter’s Modest Monday}


The Swing
by Robert Lewis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
   Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
   Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
   Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
   Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,
   Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
   Up in the air and down!




What the 8yo wore ~

Yellow skirt ~ hand-me-down from a friend
Green 3/4 length sleeve shirt ~ hand-me-down from big sister, originally from Wal-Mart
Knit biking shorts ~ Walmart
Crummy tennis shoes ~ hand-me-down from big sister J


Two ponytails with side part ~ Well, flying can rumple you up a bit. J









Okay, I like conversation on my blog, but I’m searching a bit for questions to get it started. Do you like yellow and green together? Do you like to swing? Do your daughters or granddaughters like to swing? J

Our First Day of School Photos ~ Star Wars Style

Yes, yes. I’m that mother. The one who doesn’t get first day of school photos taken until the third day of school.

Hence, these truly ought to be Th-irst Day of School photos. J

I blogged last week about tweaking our homeschool schedule to try to start school in the middle of July, despite being caught in the midst of building {and hopefully finishing} a house and studying for the Bible Bee as well as the usual summer activities.

We actually accomplished that, with four days of school under our belts as of this post! J The children dove in, dreaming of cooler temperatures, free time during the holidays, and an eventual vacation.

So without further ado, our First Day of School photos actually taken on the third day and done Star Wars style. 

Don’t ask why. They just like dressing up. J








May the force be with you! J












When do you start school? How do you take your first day of school pictures?
