Aussie's Musings

A couple of weeks ago, my Dad gave all my wee bits $5.00 for a little shopping about. After much debating, wandering, and very serious mulling over, Aussie settled on a bright blue sequined notebook. 


She quickly disappeared to her room, and emerged sometime later notebook in hand to inform us that she had begun a blog, just like mamma's, and her first post was achieved and ready for the people. It  came complete with hand drawn pictures of us and the farm and it even had a box drawn at the end for readers to leave their comments. 




She has been writing tirelessly these past few days, working away, full of ideas and beauty for future post. My sweet lass, she is one of the most creative gals arounds, this one. 



I decided to do a mini photo shoot with her to remember this special time and she designed the whole scene, knew just what we required. She had constructed and painted this little table last spring out of necessity, for she needed her own capacity to color, and the flag is a new piece- contrived for leading parades or keeping her brothers in line. 


As her Mamma, I could not be prouder! She is so quickly growing and changing, and having the time to foster these interests and her evolving skills is one of the greatest blessings of homeschooling. I cling to these moments on days when all I really want is to quit or run and hide.




So without further adieu, here is her first post:


My Faimuly
I have the best faimuly ever, my mommy holds the faimuly together. My daddy holds the farm together, me Aussie i like to play with the boys, and some time's i like to be in charge of the faimuly. The boy's like to play with lego's and eleanor likes to nap. 
My life is living on a farm with 2 Brothers 1 sister and the best mommy ever, and the best daddy ever, and 20 cows, 2 horses, 24 chicins that lay 4 eggs a day. I also have 2 cat's, 2 hogs and I think that is it.

Oh, how I love this girl!

  1. Oh my, it's TOO BEAUTIFUL!!! [I cried myself, I imagine you about burst with happiness when you read what she'd written - too beautiful!].....I so think my son and Aussie would be best of friends (he's definitely of the 'grab a notebook and write/draw a million ideas in it' kinda 'little one' too (he loses himself for hours in his sketchbooks)! LOVE this post - my favourite of yours yet....just delightful xxxx

    1. I read this comment to her, and she has literally been talking about your son all day. "I bet we would be good friends, he sounds like we like to do lots of the same things!" It's very cute, and you made her day!

  11. I haven't been around younger kids in a long time and this post really blew me away on how creative they can be. It's lovely because I feel like you can literally see them forming as they do these little things- their personality, their interests, their talents. And it definitely sounds like you have a creative growing up in your family!

    Her post was adorable, but I'm really impressed with how she thought out the scene for these photos. I thought you made it- it's so dreamy and girly and full of childhood.

    Seriously, I'm thoroughly impressed! Go Aussie go!

    (also, how adorable is it that she drew her own blog?! I died a little over that.)

    1. Oh yes, they are very creative! One of my favorite things about being around little ones. They have nothing hindering them, they are brave and smart and fearless. It's a wonderful thing to get to watch and learn from.

  12. Oh, I love this!! I started my first diary when I was around 8 and reading my entries from back then are hilarious and a little painful. But I love hearing about life from my 8 year old perspective. I've journaled ever since. :) And obviously blogged as well. :) Love this whole post. Love her sweetness and creativity. Love that you are fostering it in her more and more. Love that she came up with this set and that you helped her along. All so sweet! :)

  21. This may be the sweetest thing I have ever seen. It reminds me of when I was girl and got my first notebook and carried it everywhere, one of the times to the ballet to write everything I had done in the city. SO precious, hold on to all those memories.
