So the schools went back this week and everywhere suddenly went quiet. We had a very peaceful day at home Thursday. S asked to do some workbooks, a little maths and a little writing.
We baked a cake and topped it with fresh strawberries. We played card games, and hide and seek, we read books, and ran around outside. It was a really lovely day.
Over the last couple of weeks R achieved 2 certificates in swimming. Her 25 metre rainbow award and she completed stage 5 and has moved up a level. Her butterfly this week was particularly impressive.
We enjoyed our first Not Back To School picnic with a local home ed group. We flew a kite, played, hunted for bugs and blew bubbles. A lovely way to settle back in to our after the summer break.
Yesterday we went to Moors Valley for a “short” play and ended up staying over 4 hours! Poor Granma was exhausted. The children all made new friends on the adventure trail and didn’t want to leave.
All in all a lovely way to ease into the autumn term.
