Weekly Photo Challenge: A Day in My Life

This is my photographic response to a recent photo challenge by The Daily Post. I like taking photos, especially for this type of challenge. I find it leads me to see the world differently. And seeing the world differently is something I always find enriching.

I had planned to publish “A Day in the Life” homeschool posts summarizing each day this week, but I balked, unconvinced that it would be interesting to anyone but me (not that that’s ever stopped me from posting before).

Turns out, the people over at The Daily Post thought a photographic day-in-the-life post was just the thing for this week, so I’m doing my “A Day in My (homeschooling) Life” for Monday and participating in their challenge at the same time. Maybe I’ll add Tuesday through Friday if the mood strikes me.

This is one photo an hour from 7 am to 10 pm, Monday, April 1st, 2013.

Alas, I did not go to bed at 10 pm, that’s just when I stopped taking photos. I stayed up a little later to read and prep a blog post. Bedtime on Monday was more like midnight.

For those interested, the subjects we covered today in homeschool were math, writing, grammar, handwriting, Latin, flute, and history.

    Hi CJ,

    You have saved me the cost of a good pair of binoculars. If I get an urge to check out the blogging mom who home schools and writes “Imperfect Happiness”, I can simply view this post. It’s all there – including laundry on a drying rack and an open fridge (stocked to the brim with healthy stuff, of course).

    Just kidding. Your photography is excellent! I think that you Aced this challenge! I like the image with 3 pair of feet coming out from the story book. Looks cozy!

      If I do as I plan this summer, you won’t have to wait for photos to see my laundry hanging out to dry; you’ll be able to just look in our back yard. Although binoculars might still help if you want to get a really good look at it without taking a walk.

      And the story book…yes, it is quite cozy. My children refer to that daily activity as “reading and snuggling.” It’s a popular pastime for us these days, but might get traded in for “reading and sitting a few feet apart” once the weather gets warmer.

    Quite a day to get through! I admire home schooling. How do you keep up with all that you have to teach?

      Thanks for the comment. I’m not sure what exactly you’re asking. Are you asking about how I keep up with educational requirements from external sources (e.g., what the state requires that I teach), or are you asking how we get through all of the subjects we teach on a daily basis? I recently published a four-part series of posts about homeschooling. If you’d like to read those March 2013 posts (here on this blog), they might answer some of your questions. I didn’t specifically address state requirements because they vary so much from state to state, so if that’s your question, I could address that separately. Thanks again for visiting!
