Robins and Snow Hunting

Standard

Today we read a truly lovely poem about Scandinavian robins. We learned about their migration and then Lady P made a lovely picture of two robins. It was a completely unplanned activity but was lovely!

In our part of the UK, we never see snow! It’s tragic actually! I miss snow! Yesterday we decided to hunt for snow. We visited a friend’s farm and they had plenty! Unfortunately, on the way I got stuck in a snow bank and by some miracle, a farmer happened to be in the same place at the same time, and dragged me out of the bank by attaching a rope to my tow bar! It was comical really! Lady P was super anxious and wanted to go home but I just thought it was just like me to go and get stuck in 3cm of snow! Canada will be ashamed!

We managed to finally arrive at our destination and played in the snow, we went sledding and saw horses who came up for a visit! It was wonderful!

Side note: I got an appointment with the School nurse about Penny. She is coming Tuesday to have a chat!

Holiday in Scotland

Standard

We spent our half-term break in Comrie, Scotland with friends.  What an amazing trip!  We stayed in a hotel the first few days, then stayed in a large house with lovely friends! Our goal was finding snow! 

   
   

We managed to find snow for one day, which was exciting for the kids as they’ve never seen it before! I really love seeing snow through my kids’ eyes!  It was so exciting!

   
 
Another day, we spent time at the Loch Earn, exploring with the kids!  It was so beautiful! 

   
    
 We came back all refreshed and ready to get back to home education!  I have finished working now and am finally self-employed so I’m excited to begin officially home educating my oldest!
