the beach | orange beach alabama photography

The kids and I decided to take the last few weeks of our homeschool year on the road.  We’re in the home stretch and if we have to do school – why not do it with our toes in the sand.  Sixteen days at the beach?  Yes, please!  We have been staying at my mom’s house in Orange Beach, Alabama.  And it was the perfect opportunity to take Taryn’s 10th birthday photos.  At the last minute I decided to let the two little boys crash her session and I’m SO glad I did.  Ty couldn’t join us because he’s in a cast and he didn’t want to get sand in it.  Sand and casts do not mix.  I’m kind of in love with these….

homeschool robot week

Every week I think “this week is my favorite”, but Robot week, wins, hand down!  The best part of this week was watching my kids light up when I told them I bought a bunch of old appliances from Goodwill for them to disassemble and repurpose in to robots.  An old VCR, an old clock radio, a remote control, a coffee pot and a old game controller, all for $20 and we harvested a ton of parts and pieces.  They loved every minute of taking the appliances apart – they were fascinated.  When you add in that we were totally geeking out that Storybots regrammed Taryn’s Storybot artwork, it was the best week yet!  Any week that we have a lot of Storybots is a great week, Jonah is obsessed!
