Not back to school

I can’t believe that had Poppy still been at school she would be starting her secondary education today!

The sun was shining this morning so after breakfast we went for a nice walk around the village, Skye took along my camera and took a few pics πŸ™‚ We had a chat about what they wanted to do over the next few weeks, Skye is really keen to learn more about photography and is excited that her birthday is only days away and she is hoping to be able to save enough money to buy her own dslr camera πŸ™‚ Poppy also enjoys photography and is more interested in just the photo taking rather than learning about photography at this stage but that’s fine πŸ™‚ She is also really enjoying maths and was keen to have a look at Conquer Maths. They have both said they enjoy doing ‘work’!

Once we were home from our walk, Skye spent some time on the internet learning about aperture, then went off to do more photography using the manual settings on my bridge camera.

Poppy had a look at Conquer maths and really enjoyed it so will let her continue for a while with the free lessons and look at paying for it if she still shows enthusiasm for it πŸ™‚ Skye liked it too πŸ™‚

Skye and Poppy are entering some of the categories at the village show this weekend. One of Skye’s entries is a sketch drawing;


and both are entering something into handmade jewellery (pic to follow) and also a photographic entry πŸ™‚

They have also spent over an hour Skyping friends, more giggling and laughing than actual conversation but they have had fun πŸ™‚

I have enjoyed our not back to school day, almost as much as our pudding; delicious home-made apple crumble with apples from our very own tree….mmm mmmm πŸ™‚
