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.

Back into the swing of things....

We all survived my week at Artsfest. I had a fantastic time and loved going out everyday to do my own thing- its only been 10 years or so since I did that type of thing-
My wonderful friend Rhondella held the fort and looked after the boys- Thanks Rhondella! The boys enjoyed their week as well and I think Rhondella even had a bit of a break from her own hectic life while she was out here or out "bush" as she calls it.

Mr10 has been spending lots of time with Emi and trying to teach her all sorts of new tricks, sometimes she wolf whistles and sometimes she laughs like Mr5 and sometimes she makes noises like Minxy our pussy cat, she is learning so much, He has also been taking Emerald outside to browse in the callistemons and grevilleas-

She is a brave little bird and quite enjoys it, she gets so excited hopping around from flower to flower and calling out to all the other parrots flying around.

It is cooling off here, now the rain has finally stopped, the beds are made up with nice snuggly flannelet sheets and the quilts are back. The days have been spectacular though.

We are getting back into our homeschool routine this week and the boys started back at swimming today and when we came home Daddy had hung an interesting load out on our clothesline-

We have been making Easels

It is our local Agricultural show next week and the boys are madly finishing off things to go into the show so this week is shaping up to be busy-

I love the easels on the clothing line! Emerald is so cute.
