Two Families: Homeschooling Day

Standard

Today we headed over to our friend’s house, who also home educates her children, for a baking session.  It is really nice to get the kids together with other like-minded  homeschooling families,to socialise and do activities together!  There were four children all together (including 2 under 14 months) which can be quite difficult!  It can be difficult to homeschool and look after a baby at the same time, so you just do what you can!  But today’s session was very successful and the children (including babies) had a lot of fun!

Today’s highlight: Lady P was given an egg which she banged on the table one handed and put in the mixing bowl, egg shell and all.  It was pretty funny!

In fact, it’s my first project.

After we had lunch (and cupcakes), the children did a picture together then played with play dough!  It was a great day!
