"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

Just another day

We had planned that we would go swimming this morning.Our day took a different turn when Milly woke up and decided she didn't want to go out.
We began the day by cuddling in the sunroom and read the end chapters of this book.



Milly is really into this series .They are about a 14 year old girl called Ally and her family and friends,written with great humour and we think they have quite a lot in common with Jacqueline Wilson books.

After making an important call(one that I have put off for days now,it's only to a garage about an automatic car but I have times when I just can't pick up the phone)it was nearly 11.00 before I eventually made it upstairs to get a shower and get my hair washed.

I did think of offering up a trip to the beach for a walk as the weather was quite sunny but by the time I cam down it was pouring down:-(

Emily wanted help with cutting out some clothes from this designer dress book.I got it a while ago as she is so into drawing her characters and designing clothes for them,she also loves the websites like My scene



It wasn't quite what she had imagined,and she found it all a little fiddly so after making one outfit she moved on to something else.We may come back to it in time.She used some of the frills and ribbon from the kit to make a sign for her and Pans den!!




For lunch she wanted Granny's homemade bread with jam on.I added a few other things to the plate in case she fancied them.

Before



After



I often find that if I offer up other bits and pieces she will tuck in, although she may not have actually thought of asking for them.

Here's someone waiting very paitently for a little treat:-)



Milly spent some time watching BBCi



I decided to do something I rarely do in the daytime and watched Loose women.
I came through to start this post and Alan arrived home early so a quick cuppa and then off to get A off the school bus for a play and tea.....

Sounds like a great day.
Has E seen the Rosie Flo colouring books? I don't know what age group they're aimed at but there is so much more you could do with them than colour and the pics are fabulous!

Love the photos! Thanks for sharing your homeschooling experiences. We just recently put our kids in public school for the first time and it's working out well. However, I fully intend on bringing them home again in a few years... I think around 5th grade is when kids start getting mean, not to mention some of the temptations that they're exposed to.

Looking forward to reading more about your journey!
