New 'School' Year

Finally sorted the problems out and can now get back in and post, well that's not strictly true, hubby to the rescue... and now I can finally post!

The new 'school' year has started rather slowly, what with an LA meeting in the first week back and hubby on his hols from work the second and third weeks, we haven't really got down to work at all. We are supposed to be giving Sonlight a 'go' but I'm having trouble implementing a schedule and sticking to it; life just keeps getting in the way!

We've been to the Life Museum though, which was lots of fun as they have a healthy bodies section where you give yourself an overall health check and watched the summer sky, stars and planets in the Dome, this went very well with daughter's Astronomy lapbook she's doing at the moment.

We've been to the beach a few times too, yes there has been a few days without rain during September :o)

We visited a living archeology day during the Heritage Open Days based on the medieval time period. We learnt how to make tallow candles and watched a short play on Saint George and the Dragon. This was really good fun for all the family.

I'll upload the piccies when they are off the camera.

We've also been helping our eldest daughter set up her business and visiting the grandparents (which was lovely as we don't get to see them very often) but with all this going on, I wonder just when I'm supposed to start the new curriculum!
