Hello again :)

Hello! It's been two years since I last blogged about home ed, and I thought I would start it up again, seeing as a friend mentioned that she was sharing my blog the other day on her website, so I thought I'd better up my game! Here we are still home educating, still enjoying it, still doing it on my own, but with the help of our lovely friend Dave who takes us everywhere, as I STILL don't drive. We are busy every week doing home ed horse riding lessons, art history lessons, maths lessons, drama lessons, and tennis lessons! As well as swimming lessons and guitar lessons too. We have started a new business (with Dave) putting on ultra marathons - (putting them on for other people to run, as if you would catch me running)! We are involved with a lovely group of home educators and are so lucky there is now such a big community of home educators in Taunton for us to be friends with. More and more people are taking their children out of the failing school system, it would seem! Here is the Taunton Home ed website, so you can see some of the things that are going on. We are very blessed.

This week has been a good week to blog about as we went to Cleeve Abbey in Washford, and it was amazing. Like all English Heritage sites, they let us in for free because we were home educators, and they were very supportive and helpful. They even gave us an interactive book to walk around with, and some hands on objects. We have been studying medieval times, including monks and gothic architecture recently, so this was a perfect trip!

 Amazing interactive hands on things!
 Monk graffiti!
 Beautiful medieval tiles
 Monks dormitory
Wattle and daub wall!
We also went to a pretty village church, to continue with our gothic architecture theme. We studied the beautiful stained glass window, and Acey drew the church gate! And whilst we were there, we were lucky enough to encounter someone practising the organ.

 We found some wild strawberries to eat in the graveyard.
Sketching the stained glass window!
How fun! :) Will blog again soon. Thanks for reading xxx
