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.

Briar Rose wanted to be a “Family Doctor”
Now Briar wants to be a “Paleontologist-Family Doctor”
Zoë wanted to be a “Scientist”
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 wanted to be an “Author”
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.
