This museum displayed restored aircrafts from World War 2 era. His new friend Dillon invited him along with other homeschool local kids. This was Richard’s department, so he was my photographer and Owen’s guide for the day.
Later that evening…
Lego Challenge at Olympia Library
Tonight’s theme was build a playground with your group. Owen built a tire swing, a slide and a jungle gym. Here’s everyone looking at their work.
We’ve been staying more local, mainly focusing on Owen’s academic and social life. There are many stereotypes on homeschooled kids; socialization is one of them. His social life is different from someone who attends a public or a private school, but it doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Don’t feel sorry for him nor treat him any different. He makes friends his own way and let’s leave it at that. If you worry about his socialization, please don’t.
Owen has a healthy social life; he is exposed to children of all ages, different cultural backgrounds, kids in all walks of life. When Owen meets a like-minded individual, they become friends for life. He has meaningful and loving friendships with penpals and friends.
So, as you can see, there’s no reason to worry. We got this.
Here’s what’s in store for Arts & Crafts night at the shelter next week. I’ll be teaching the kids how to make holiday ornaments. A volunteer donated a tree and it’s up to me and the kids to decorate it. Volunteers have come forward and donated supplies. Warms my heart. It’s all for the kids… Pinterest saved the day again…
