|Snuggled Up For Reading Time|
Last Saturday was a significant milestone for my 8 year old as I read him his final chapter in our reading through the Bible, which began on his 5th birthday. He was thrilled to pieces with his new Bible, and is looking forward to a celebratory trip to see The Lion King with Michael in a couple of weeks.

That same evening, a few other home education mums came round for tea, cake, and a chance to catch up and talk about home education together - the encouragements and the challenges. It's also an opportunity to share some of the resources we use.

In spite of colds, we went on our nature walk this week. We had come across a new nature trail very near to home recently, so thought that we would explore it this week. Although we didn't see very much lichen (the topic of this week's nature study), we did see some great fungus, and the children enjoyed exploring a new area.
Today we had a visit to the National Gallery with our home education group. We enjoyed being shown three individual paintings by one of the education team at the gallery, and everyone was very positive about the trip. It's great to have such fantastic opportunities so close to home.
The weekend is looking fairly quiet at the moment, which is very appealing! A chance to recharge a bit together, and get ready for another week.
