Time for Cee’s Share Your World Challenge again. That means another week has kicked off. So let’s do it… Let’s get this questions answered and let’s tackle the week ahead of us…
What is the most fun thing you did in school?
In school itself? Or while I was in school? Not really sure… I think the entire time at school was actually pretty fun (looking back now…). I really can’t remember one special fun thing. I had a lot to giggle back then. Had good friends and times were good, you know. We could ride our bikes or walk around without adult supervision because we just could. We could catch up with each other after school somewhere in town. Just had to be back at a certain time. What I remember the most is riding out with my best friend on the weekend or after school and sometimes taking a picnic or even only a little snack along to head to our favorite place and hang out there. That I truly enjoyed…
What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
I don’t have a favorite type of dog. I think they are all amazing. I grew up with German Shepards, then we had Great Danes. I loved them all. When i met my husband we got a Border Terrier. Such an amazing bread. He moved with us from Up Over to Down Under. I could have never left him behind. I wished he would have turned older… at least we have a little bit of him still with us in the shape of his daughter (still grateful to our vet for wanting to have puppies from him and her dog…). He was a fantastic dog, watched over our son and us, was smart and gentle. Not a crazy terrier at all.
As much as I would love to get another Border Terrier again in the future (maybe combined with a Great Dane) we decided that we will no longer aim for a pure breed from a breeder. After we lost our dog a couple of years ago, we went to one of the rescue shelters to have a look around and it almost broke my heart. So many fantastic dogs who desperately need a new home. They might not be pure bread but they are all so amazing. I would have taken them all, even the old pitbull in the back. I still remember his eyes… Anyway, we walked out of there with a tiny terrier puppy. The amount of life and love (and crazyness) she brought to our family is amazing. But you can read about it here or here if you like.
So do I have a favorite dog? Yes I do, it’s both of ours 😉 A favorite type: Nope. Any dog is amazing.
You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Oh of course I would. I’m not shy and I love to mix and mingle and meet new people. So if I already knew that there would be a bunch of fascinating people then I’d be there in a heartbeat. Unless of course I would have to travel around the world. Then I would not go by myself. Just because I don’t want to be that far away from my family… Kind of makes me think of a blogger bash…
Complete this sentence: Never In My Life Have I….
… hurt someone on purpose. And I will never hurt someone on purpose…
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful that we are all healthy and happy. As the very first question was about school: I’m also grateful that I don’t have to deal with things mom’s of kids in school have to put up (oh I heard some stories again…). I’m grateful that the kids do so well in their homeschooling.
And I’m really grateful for my friends who support us homeschooling by just simply talking about it, ask their questions they listen to our answers, they take it in. Unlike other people. See some people are really uneasy with things not being done the so called “normal way”. That’s fine. But don’t make your issues with “not normal things” my issues. Don’t judge what you don’t really know. Keep an open mind. I’m grateful for having friends who have an open mind. Who teach their kids the same thing. That’s when it clicks.
Honestly, it is a big thing for me. I do not really mind if people I don’t know are critical of homeschooling (although they usually don’t know anything about it but the usual stereotypes). It would get to me though, if my friends would start nagging. So I’m really glad they don’t.
