It's Official!

We are now officially Home Educators! Today is the first day of term after Matilda's fifth birthday, so we celebrated with a trip to the library. I felt ever so slightly naughty too! It feels fun to be going against the norm.
The day started with some Kindle reading in bed - she has just started on The Twits by Roald Dahl. There aren't many words she gets stuck on now and she gets the general gist of most things.
Then off to the library to find some books about Space. We are planning a field trip to the National Space Centre next month with her friends so have gone to get some inspiration for artwork and projects. 
Winnie seemed unkeen on the library's organisation and seemed intent on relocating the baby books to the teenage fiction section.
I really rather cunningly managed to forget my keys, so we spent the afternoon at Nyree's, eating homemade chips. For which we are truely thankful!

  1. Yay congratulations! And well done for forgetting your keys - home made chips sounds like a much better plan :-)
