Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ I had another post I was planning to write for today, but I was too excited about what my family and I did last weekend to push this post back!
This past Sunday, my family threw me a graduation party!
I was homeschooled my entire childhood. From preschool-age to my senior year, my mom taught me at home, using a huge variety of creative resources. She taught me from a very young age what a beautiful privilege it is to write and read, how awesome it is that libraries exist, and how much fun it is to learn new things! I am forever indebted to her for spending her time to teach me all these things over the years – I don’t know what I’d do without you, Mom! ❤
While I actually finished up with my 12th grade work in late May, we were all preoccupied at the time with house-hunting stuff, so we weren’t able to celebrate my graduation until now. I didn’t mind, since I also wouldn’t have wanted to try and coordinate that when all that was going on!
I loved all the decor she bought! It made it very fun and celebratory – especially the cap-and-gown guy, haha
Elizabeth was taking a nap in the living room at the time of the party, but this adorable munchkin joined us! Her smile always brightens my day.
When my mom was taking pictures, she requested that Samuel and Joshua hug me. I love how the pic turned out!
Samuel liked watching me open the present he got for me. It’s a special version of Jenga where the players have to hold the tower and pass it to the next person – it’s quite an interested concept! (Not the easiest to play, haha)
This was when I unwrapped the big present my mom got me! It’s a six-square bookshelf I just finished putting together yesterday. Once my room’s set up, I’ll share pictures of it!
The other presents I got (which aren’t pictured) were all awesome!
- $50 Chick-Fil-A gift card! (from my dad) I’M SO HAPPY
- money to go bowling with. (from Joshua) We’ll have a lot of fun
- $15 iTunes gift card! (from my mom) I’ll be getting ringtones, games and music with this!
- a beautiful coaster. (from my mom) I’ll feature it in tomorrow’s post!
- the last thing I got (from my mom) is pictured below:
This awesome llama stuffed animal! I adore it, haha! However, it doesn’t have a name yet … let me know in the comments below what you think I should name it!
It means a lot to me that my mom threw this party for me. ❤ While it’s bittersweet that I’m completely done with homeschooling, I know that many more learning adventures are still ahead! I’ll never tire of being creative and learning new things.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a beautiful day!
