Needless to say, we've been busy this summer. We've had friends to stay, been camping, dealt with a broken computer (still dodgy), done some walking, visited the Forbidden Corner and been to London. In and amongst it all, we did some maths, a bit of art, lots of crafts and we even managed to row Andy and the Lion which coincidentally finished just as a circus came to town, which we just had to go and see :)
Now that September has started, temperatures have dropped and all their groups and activities are back on. And don't I just know it!!! it's been a very, VERY busy week :)
It's been one of those weeks when we've been to a Home Ed group every single day.For some reason, I have a dearth of photographic evidence for most of it so you'll just have to take my (written) word for it.
Monday, we went to a Not-Back-To-School Picnic in a local park and met lots of new families, some new to Home Ed and some just new to me :) It was cold but fun.
Tuesday, we got back to our usual maths. (We use MEP but we've been exploring The I Hate Mathematics! Book and Number Puzzles .) We then made a Pandora's Box to take to book group where we've been reading Greek Mythology over the summer - or rather, we were supposed to be......
Wednesday was our local themed session where we were looking at Ice Age/Stone Age life. Oooh!! i have photos to prove it ;)

Thursday, we went to our regular Home Ed martial arts group, where they've both started working towards gradings.
Friday -today- they went to a climbing group. Phew!!!
I'm really looking forward to a quieter week at home next week :) Not that I'm complaining mind, it's been lovely to see people and catch up with folk. I just need to recharge my batteries a little after all that hecticness :)
