We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Creative Morning

We have woken this morning to a slightly cooler day with a lovely soft drizzle.
The boys have been outside and have come in out of the wet and they have both started creative projects without any input from me!

I love it when they spontaneously start to teach themselves.

Mr5 has opened up some plasticine type modeling clay and is making a tree with purple flowers

and some little rainbow lorrikeets

Mr10 has requested a new art diary and some oil pastels to create some images of our pet lorrikeet Emerald.

focusing on his very active model

a work in progress

Emerald has been moved to a position of prominence to do some life modelling and supervise the boys in their rendering of her species.

We are drinking chai and listening to the soft sound of the rain on the tin roof, the warble of the magpies and the cheeping of our budgies and other visiting birds to our bird feeder.

I hope the rain keeps falling, our gardens really need it and its a lovely respite from the heat.

And we are going to make some rice paper rolls for lunch.
A nice meal to prepare together.
