Homeschooling Group

A few families in our area have gotten a local Homeschooling Group together, we meet up every week and let the kids just hang out. It's been a life saver; Littletree is really coming out of her shell, hanging with other children regularly. They all have a lot of fun, playing, and doing activities.

Lately we started renting one of the halls in the area (at $30 for half the day, with all the facilities, its a great deal, especially split amongst a few families). Most of the families are leaning towards unschooling/ natural learning, and natural living. It's a great network for us.

last week was a great day; The kids got into dress-ups and danced around the hall for ages, and played with Barbies.

It was also the birthday of one of the girls, I made her a vegan chocolate cake, all organic, and unrefined, of course, topped with icing I coloured pink with beetroot juice and fresh fruit. It was a big hit (and I love showing off that healthy nutritious stuff can also be decadent and yummy!)

There was also a horse grazing around the hall, so the kids all had a great time patting it and feeding it apple cores :) Littletree was especially excited abut the horse.
