We have had a fabulous summer day's gallivanting today in glorious West Sussex. First stop was Petworth House with Grandma for a stroll around the grounds, coffee and S, O and Mum looked at the art and inside the house. S just loves it there, whilst E and I played hide and seek in the grounds and waited for them then, Mum headed home and we headed to Goring Beach to meet 8 or 9 other of the loveliest, local home educating families for a play in the sea and rock pooling (mostly dead crabs.) It was misty at first but lifted to a beautiful sunny afternoon.
Regular readers will know I have found group meetings a bit overwhelming lately but S was so thrilled to see a BFF she hasn't seen in months it was worth it just to see her face. They were inseparable for a couple of hours playing in the rock pools. E was pretty together too we managed not to unravel and make it home all still smiling :)
Before we left this morning the trio made thank-you cards for the Lego their paternal grandparents gave them at the weekend - knocked over by the accuracy of E's drawing of his star wars set as he is not generally much of a drawer.
S did this face, E wrote his name in the sand and O did another O much better than the one on Saturday. Unschooling in action!
