Here are a few of my favourite photos ~
Just hanging down the beach

Hubby and I
My beautiful Mum ~ I just adore this photo, I am thinking seriously about
enlarging this one and getting it framed for her, what do you think?
My daughter Grace on the left with her third cousin Emily!

Shortbread making and eating the mixture
busily at it
This is pretty much what our table looks like everyday except Saturday and Sunday!
..and I love it!
We haven't officially finished our school year, we have been working very hard to complete some read aloud books and other work.
We finally finished Our sunburnt country which has been a marvelous Australian history book, we also followed on our maps as we were reading about the first explorers, the gold rush and other mining discoveries, WW1 & 2, and all the farming industry that has brought Australia to where she is today.
The Magic Pudding and The Tale of Despereaux are our last read alouds to finish before the 17th of December. I must say I am looking forward to a good rest, but also looking forward to planning for 2011 as I progress more and more towards a Charlotte Mason education.
Today we have another lot of cousins arriving and this time they are sleeping at our house..YAY!
The children with my children whom you saw in the photos are my cousin Craig's children, and Jenny who is coming today is Craig's sister!
HA, did you get that?
