Day One

Day one was... brilliant! Awwwww - I love learning alongside of my boy.

*happy mama*

It was strange waving Hug off at the bus-stop once again but he seemed happy to be back in his routine. The house was peaceful. Very peaceful! Which was a nice contrast to the mayhem of holidays and L and I seemed to instantly flow back into the rhythm we had last year.

There is a new influence in our eclectic educational mix this year - Charlotte Mason - and I'm rather excited about my curriculum plans :) I will blog about them properly soon.

L's first official narration. It's something that has always happened naturally around here, of course, but Narration is a big element of the CM philosophy and it's going to take me a while to get used to "requiring"  it from each reading. Here L is narrating through drawing; after we read "The stories of Albion and Brutus" from Our Island Story.

You can also see T's kindle in shot! He's kindly agreed to let us use it for some of our readings.

Lovely lurves board games & Trouble is his current fave. We played lots of Trouble today :)

Collections and sketches from our nature walk. Keeping a Nature Journal  - another new part of our plans for this year.

There were spontaneous Zombie dances (totally coincidental Tracey - weird),  a return to The Life of Fred: Butterflies (We've missed you Fred) and water-play in the backyard - I'll warn you now - you had better watch out when mama gets hold of the hose!

Fun. But now it's late. I must sleep. There's a whole wide world out there to explore tomorrow. x

  1. Love his narration. Life of Fred, is being mentioned everywhere. Really must hurry up and take a closer look at that.

  2. So good to read about your new beginnings in 2012! Funny about the Zombies...the girls were't even particularly tired (but they sure are today!).
    Love the school photo shoot : )
