Happy Friday! Our summer weather is here, so it is time to start rolling out the summer weather wardrobe! Love! I love wearing these loose-fitting, distressed boyfriend jeans on warm days. The distressed portions are like built-in air conditioning! haha
This has become one of my go-to outfits for the warm weather season. Everything I am wearing is extremely comfortable, and easy to just throw on in the morning. Plus, these jeans and tee are machine wash cold. Love that! I can deal with clothing I cannot throw in the washing machine. I need to be able to wash and go with my clothes!
I wore this outfit while out with my ten-year-old daughter earlier this week. She took these photos and is showing a keen interest in photography. While my son and oldest daughter attend our local public school, I homeschool my ten-year-old daughter through an online school. She has ADHD and the online school is a great set-up for her. They have different curriculum options, and we chose one which gives her the flexibility she needs to stay focused and on task.
The way her schooling works is genius. The school gives us a syllabus and all of the supplies, books, and workbooks she needs for the school-year. I administer the assignments, and organize her week. It’s great because on days when she is able to focus she can work ahead, and on days when she has trouble staying on task, we can stop working and do something else. Sometimes she does school work on the weekends, or after dinner; it just depends on when she feels like she can focus.
The online school she attends has been fabulous since they adjust her curriculum to fit her 170+ IQ. So her math is accelerated! It’s amazing! Plus, she has an accredited teacher she can go-to if something is beyond my expertise. We started to homeschool though an online school when she was in third grade and realized kids with ADHD fall through the cracks in the public school system, and private schools which cater to kids like her cost over $30K a year. We initially thought we would transition her back to public school for sixth grade, but she has decided she would like to continue online school for middle school.
So you might be wondering why I am bringing this up on a fashion blog, well, I do have a point! My daughter snapped these pictures for me and has shown an interest in learning more photography. I am thrilled because her school has a photography elective she can take in sixth grade and it is perfect for both of us! She is excited to learn more about using a DSLR and also learning the artistic side to photography. As a blogger mom, I will benefit because she will be my photographer! Technically, she already takes about one-third of my photos, so she is already my photog, but now, she will be able to take the camera out of auto and into manual. She is excited, and I am thrilled! Yay!
If you have a child with ADHD and you are struggling with your child’d school placement, feel free to contact me. We have been through it all! Her online school has been a lifesaver and has built up her confidence ten-fold. Plus, she has a 4.0 gpa and loves school! That is music to any parent’s ears.
Thanks for stopping by!
