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.

Mulberry Time


My Mr6 has been sick.
But is feeling better so yesterday afternoon we went for a walk in the paddocks
We went to see our favourite red gum,we have been watching the Pacific Herons
carrying branches and sticks and reeds up there
building a nest and wanted some photos.
We found the nest, but the herons went somewhere else,
they are being elusive and we never see them when we go out with the camera.

It was a beautiful afternoonand Mr6 took his dog Miss Meggy, who took her ball
unfortunately it sank in the little dam
Mr10 was the brave one who went in to find itHe is a very tactile boy and just had to feel that lovely mud

He is also a very cheeky boy!
He decided it was rather nice and visited the next dam as well
where he washed the mud off ,
Mr6 wisely staying clear of all the splashing
We wandered back to our place and took some photos
this one is the boys " hide out"

Next stop was the mulberry trees
the boys soon began to enjoy its treasures
Mr6 had hardly eaten anything for 2 days

and the ripening of the mulberries is a highlight of the year here
he told us the mulberry trees were healing him
every mulberry was packed with healing vitamins
and he feasted
so did Mr10
and they were also the first thing Mr6 kept down in 2 days
so they must have been healing for him
He is feeling much brighter today, and slept well last night.

You have mulberries???? My tree I planted at the beginning of winter is still but a stick that I nervously go out and look at and poke and water and wish to see leaves popping out soon.... I hope it isnt dead!
