Springtime ramblings

We have been outdoors every day pretty much non-stop for about three weeks now. It feels good after the long winter. I love that learning doesn't have to be behind a desk. I love that we're free to do in-depth nature study. I love seeing Acey's passion for learning because he isn't forced to do it. I love that being a homeschooling parent I am learning things too. And I love that more and more people are discovering that home education is an option. Although I also love that most people's children have gone back to school after the Easter holidays!! We have the museums, parks etc back to peace and tranquility again. Imagine how noisy life would be if EVERYONE home educated! ;)

I also love that God answers prayers. I can't homeschool without praying over our day. It really makes a difference! I was kind of getting into a muddle with our routine, and Acey's reading wasn't at a level I would have liked, he was having concentration difficulties. I pray and BAM! He picks up a book and reads the whole thing, he does all of his chores without complaining, he cooks his own tea, willingly. The atmosphere is just so much more pleasant, and our day goes smoothly. Why is it so hard t
o remember to simply ask God when I find us slipping? I must remember in future!

 We had archery this week...

And we went to some lovely gardens up the road from where we live with our friends. We were lucky enough to get really close to some cute ducklings. They were very fluffy!

On Thursday the local farmer's market had their 10th anniversary so we went along, and our friends from a community we visit were there playing songs on their instruments and serving free yerba matte. There was also a live turkey. I love how unexpected situations like this can turn into a free learning experience. We also visited Sheppy's Cider Farm.

Today we had a walk and picnic with a group of Christian homeschoolers. 

and we have finally got some seeds planted, about time!
