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.

The Not Back to School Pool Party

The Clarence Valley Homeschoolers and Natural Learners
held a Not Back to School Pool Party yesterday

I know I am feeling it in the muscles after running up those stairs far too many times with Mr5 Untill he was happy to go with his brother and then a lovely homeschooler called Grace.

There was a good turnout a dozen families or more and we must have had over 40 kids!
We also held a planning meeting- in the baby wading pool- now that is a great place for a meeting! We are planning on a whole lot of activities in a co-op type set up.
We will all meet at a hall, 2 Mums will do pre school stuff with the under 5's then the rest of the kids will sort into 2 age groups >10< and have a choice of different activities- tennis, cooking, paper mache, car maintenance, handcrafts, drama etc. It sounds like it will be a great and busy term and I really need to make the extra trip into town for the boys to get that regular contact with other kids.

We met some new homeschoolers and Mr10 made a new friend.
A great day was had by all and people want to make it an annual event!
