It is two years.....

It is two years since we began our home ed life.......
Its been full of ups and downs....
We have made friends with some of the most lovely Witness families you could wish for as friends...
We are settling into mostly Unschooling approach and honestly it has been harder for me than the kids to deschool!
I need to return to the blog... It will be mostly about Home Ed....Our lives as Jehovah's Witnesses and our experiences trying to see the world from the eyes of a ten year old girl with an undiagnosed ASD.  Camhs say she has lots of Anxiety...but anyone who knows her well enough, and anyone with ASD in their families can tell.......the curse of being a at "masking" 😉

Bird feeders

Found lots of different birds in the garden today so we decided to raid the pantry and make some bird treats.
We used lard.. sultanas...digestive biscuits...sunflower seeds...and coconuts.
We never opened a coconut before so Jellybop found a You Tube video telling us how to...with a   a hammer and a screwdriver!

Day One... trying to do a little blogging every day for the rest of this month...

Today the kids wanted to bake and as we're trying to be child led in our learning, we baked! Jellybop chose to bake a Victoria Sandwich cake from the awesome Mary Berry's Fast Cakes book. She wanted to bake little cakes as well so doubled the mixture.  The little cakes were so huge that there was only enough mixture left for one layer of sponge for the Victoria, oops.  It will be great with custard!
Legoboy picked meringues.  We've never made them by whisking the whites and sugar in a bowl over a pan of hot water. But they turned out fine!

After the washing up was done they decided to do a bit of drawing and made morphed together Moshi Monster pictures

The afternoon was PE, they fished out the Wii and played Wii Sports and Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games for two hours without falling out with each other.

Verdict...good day!

Modelling Clay Activity

After some pretty tricky Maths on Education City this afternoon and a Film Review of Dolphin Tale 2 the kids decided to play modelling clay, this first photo is Daddy and Mummy by Jellybop.
The second photo is Uncle Steve without his beard, by Legoboy!  It will be added later when there is more charge in my phone battery!
