Socialise! Socialise! Socialise!

This week we have done nothing but socialise! We went to the theatre to see The Cat in The Hat. It was so funny and another home educator had organised a group booking. We were in the second row! We had a wonderful time and then went for lunch after the show at the shopping outlet across the way.

Here is what we saw when we walked into the theatre:

Animal Friends We Have Made

One of the nice things about home educating is that we can go out when the sun shines and make four legged friends. We can go for nice nature walks along the river and on our route, there is a horse pasture. We stop and fuss over the horses and they love the attention.

We also get to enjoy the playgrounds when the children are in school. One day when we were out in the sunshine, we met a lovely dog. I've been told she is a Staffy (Staffordshire Terrier). She was very friendly and I did think she was going to follow us home!

Here are some of our animal friends:

We also made friends with a snake at a vivarium:

School Holidays

This week the local schools are off because of the end of term or Easter Holidays. We have been getting together with some of Little Miss' school educated friends. We've gone to some local parks, met some geese and ducks and we've had a film club.

Little Miss' big sister went on a very exciting journey and was part of a fashion show. Big Sis used to be home educated and did her GCSE exams early. School pupils have to wait until they are 15/16 to do these exams.

Big Sis did her exams at 14/15 and she passed all of them. She's now in her second year of college (a place for 16 - 19 year olds) and is obviously the youngest in her year. She has quite a fascinating career ahead of her.

New Social Group For Home Educated Children

This week, we went to a new social group for children. Today we are going to a comedy workshop and craft session. What have other home educators or homeschoolers been doing this week? I'm pretty sure your children haven't been isolated or invisible!
