Flashback: “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up”

Scout Finch wanted to be a “Ballerina”

The past few weeks have basically consisted of Rob and me running around like crazy. It has been action-packed at this household and since I haven’t had time to set-up a skeptical or science-type photo session (and now that we’re going on vacation for the next two weeks), I decided I’d take you back in time. In fact, all the way back to July 2011.

In 2011, I took some school photos with my daughters. Since we homeschool them, I don’t do the standard “sit-down-on-a-stool-and-smile-in-front-of-a-backdrop” photos; I try to have a bit of fun with the photos since I have a camera and pretty much know how to take pictures.

That year’s theme was “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up”. Each of our daughters picked what they wanted to have as their career and I created an environment for each of them to act out their future.

Now Zoë wants to be a “Marine Biologist” (still a scientist, but more specific). She is also interested in humanitarian aid and hopes to travel the world helping others.

Jude now wants to be an “Architect”

Rob and I try to encourage our daughters’ interests and help guide them along their path. Whatever our four scientifically-minded girls decide on being when they grow up, I have a feeling I’m going to be extremely proud of them.
