Talk About Tuesday..making friends online..
In the picture below, we have Jo-with-it, and her friend, Jessie. Before the Reformation Day Faire in Peoria, they had never met. Jo met Jessie online, through her blog. They both had a lot of things in common: homeschooled, costume-making, big sisters, blogging, photography…. and the Lord, of course!
When they met, it was like they were sisters. They both had long, beautiful “Diane hair” (as mentioned here) and just had a fun time getting to know each other. In fact, this is how we found out about the Reformation Day Faire in the first place.
Without sounding like a “parenting pundit”, I will say that children who typically make good decisions at home will also make good choices when given a little bit longer leash. I was pleased with her choice of activity (the Reformation Faire) and her new friends. It’s always fun when it’s their OWN idea too.
Thank you to all of you who took my: fitness question survey. If you haven’t had a chance to do it yet, you can still go back and add a comment/ suggestion.
