Catching Fire-

So I sent the teens this monday to go see Catching Fire with a few other homeschool girls. They said they met some new friends and had a great time being geeky, drooling over boys and comparing and contrasting the book. I counted it as a great experience for them.

Koda's Photos

With Koda aspiring to go into photography I have given her tasks to go out and take photos occasionally. They are generally glorified scavenger hunts but with the point to go and be observant and take pictures.

Talking internships

Well Koda is finally "growing up". Being a Junior in highschool we have to start thinking about what will happen after us. Originally she wanted to go into the FBI and become a criminal behaviorist. Well being as she doesn't excel in math or science, Randy and I didn't think it would be a good fit. Koda had expressed a sudden interest in photography however and BAM! We found a passion.

" I don't think I want to work in the FBI anymore," couldn't have sounded like sweeter words.

Koda doesn't like people. Period. She has however an abundance of love for nature and animals due to her father. I have possibly found an opportunity to send her to a farm for a few weeks as an intern. She would help with milking goats, making goat soap, canning, butchering chickens. You know, what all teenage girls want to do. She is so excited as in some possible downtime she would love to go and take photos of the animals, the barns and nature.

In the meantime we are going to work on some basic photography skills and photo-editing to get her prepared for this.
