We have had a wonderful few days enjoying spring and the sunshine. Monday we met up with a couple of other home educating families at Moors Valley. We played, climbed, went on swing, made bows and arrows with sticks we found, we had stick sword fights, and cooked pretend spaghetti in a wet ditch. The children played, learned and socialised happily and naturally for over 3 hours.
When we got home we watched a dinosaur film together and until our school friends got home, then it was out to play again.
Yesterday we went food shopping together and the children chose what they’d like for lunch, this included tiger paw crusty rolls, a watermelon and 3 punnets of strawberries! R may have snuck in a box of ice lollies too. After shopping we went to Granma’s house to eat lunch and play together. The children spent the afternoon and evening outside with friends on their bikes and at the park.
Today we played monopoly and a shopping game, then S made pancakes for everyones breakfast. After breakfast we did some housework and hung washing out on the line. R played Greek Mythology Minecraft and E played Warhammer on the pc.
We had some lunch then headed off to big park with Poppy. R took some books, a notebook, pen, bubbles and a skipping rope with us. We played together, R did reading and writing in the sunshine, and we chased butterflies and bubbles.
When we got home we went foraging in the garden for stinging nettles and made some nettle soup. We will be trying some with our dinner later.
Right now I’m sitting in the sun writing whilst the children play with friends. It’s pure bliss. I could get used to this sunshine!
