Homeschool Goth Day
Our local homeschool group had the coolest teen event on Monday. One of the moms organized it (you rock Iris!) and hosted it at her house. They all dressed in the clothes of whatever persona they wanted to adopt for the day. Qacei and her friends chose Goth. Then Iris helped them with their makeup and an unschooled teen, Laurel, did a photoshoot with amazing results. I just adore this picture of Qacei. With her dark eyes and naturally pale skin, she seems a perfect canvas for the Goth look. Here's one of Bekka's pictures to the right. She has a beautiful, haunting look with her light hair and black makeup. You'd never know that these are happy, friendly, quite often giggling unschoolers. They've got so much attitude here! I think it's healthy for kids to try out new and different personas. As long as we appreciate them for Who They Are, they can try things out while still remaining true to themselves. I got to drive a whole buch of the kids home from the photoshoot. I'm sure we looked like quite an odd carload. But what a priviledge to be around such a fun and interesting group of people.
