We have moved on to our new destination, and it is lovely to be back in the town I was born and bread, to see familiar faces and places. I am missing my new friends at Newcastle A LOT though, that happens hey!
We have not done much schooling in the last week as my dear children have had a bad case of the flu and ear infections, which is just so horrible.
We have been hanging low indoors just resting and recovering.
I am looking forward to starting again next week as we are starting Shakespeare's 'As you like it' which my son Joshua chose to read after we finished reading his biography.
Isn't it great when your children choose books to read, I love it!
We are also reading The Jungle book, Our Island story, Trial and Triumph and a few more!
With my daughter Grace we are loving the adventures of Blinky Bill, Alice in wonderland, Hans Christian Andersen and more.
I am so thankful to the Lord for sending Jeanne my way when I was scared to take the plunge and follow the Charlotte mason education.
Now we have all settled into a wonderful lifestyle of reading and narrating together and it's just great!
Well I have just been writing, waiting for my husband to get off the phone so we can watch 'The Man from Snowy river' on our friends MASSIVE TV!
That reminds me, we are going to be learning the beautiful poem of Banjo Patterson next term also.
I really am very excited to get our school books out again next week when everyone is well again.
