A Typical Home Ed Day in Photos

Merry is hosting a Typical HE Day in Photos on her blog and as we blog and take photos (lots!!) decided to contribute πŸ™‚

To be honest no day is the same as we kind of take opportunities as and when they come along but I guess you could call today’s series of events fairly typical for us.

Following breakfast the girls started planning a quiz show to share with their friends

Second breakfast sitting accompanied by a game of boggle πŸ™‚

Whilst waiting for C to come round, the girls planted some aubergine and beetroot seeds – a bit late but nevermind!

Once C had arrived, we had a go at some creative writing, given that the class they would normally go to on a Tuesday had stopped 😦 I gave them a choice of paragraphs from various books to use as a start point then asked them to continue the story. They all worked really hard and I was particularly impressed with Skye’s contribution – I really wish she would write more, she does it so beautifully. Poppy has great imagination but struggles to put it into written form so I was proud of her efforts today even if it was a bit crazy – she made us all giggle πŸ™‚

Camera batteries died whilst out on our walk so had to resort to phone camera until I had chance to recharge!! 😦

Spotted a Mummy duck with her ducklings with only one yellow one – very cute!

Home for lunch and some quiz jar questions

The girls continued with their board game for a while before going off to read for a bit.

Poppy picked up a book of science experiments and started browsing through it bookmarking things she wants to try, obviously something in the book made her ask if she could make some play dough, so I dug out my old recipe and off she went! So whilst Poppy was happily squishing play dough Skye checked her moshlings on moshi monsters! *roll*

and a run about in the garden with Skipper and some bouncing on the trampoline πŸ™‚

After our yummy bbq tea Wayne and Skipper walked Skye to scouts before he goes off to a works quiz night. Poppy had a bath and I tidied up, then watched No Ordinary Family, picked up Skye from Scouts who had a great time playing games at the sheep field/scouts allotment and discovered a new footpath that we are going to use tomorrow πŸ™‚

Have enjoyed today πŸ™‚ Has made me giggle that the girls have been totally cooperative and not moaned at all about getting on with something productive so that perhaps makes today not quite so typical! πŸ˜‰
