Summer has come and gone in a flash and to be quite honest it was a pretty quiet one for us. With Warren starting University and the summer holidays being manic wherever you go, we’ve stayed close to home and kept life simple this year. September always feels like such a high, as home education groups start back and our energy is renewed from the summer break.
Since September hit we’ve been a little busy, with lots of lovely people to see and things to do, as well as lots of plans to make leading up to Christmas! You might have seen our trip to Dinosaur Babies the other week; it was so fascinating and fun. George and Molly loved it and so did we!
We’ve been back in to our favourite home ed group too, and I have to say, there’s something so refreshing and joyous about hanging out with like-minded folk without all the questions… Although no doubt I’ll still get questioned on the way there and back on the bus!
We’ve also recently been to The Little Black Sheep Pottery again (check out my post about this fab place here) and George had another go on the wheel with the lovely Helen whilst Molly focused on hand-building. We LOVE this place, it really rocks and there’s just so much to see and do within a calm and safe environment.
This week we had an afternoon playdate with another home ed family; it was SO nice to hang out and see the kids bonding with each other. We went for a little walk to the local park with scooters and bikes and after a little play at our house it was logical they’d eventually hit the Mud Kitchen. What a delight it is to have our muddy world in the back garden, and what delights they made whilst they played and had fun, serving up tomato soup and cakes…
We’re now heading into the realms of Warren being a student whilst the kiddies and I learn all about hibernation. I think it’s going to be an interesting few months!
So yeah, September is good, with just the right amount of busy! I can see the months leading to Christmas being extremely full of joy and lovely people, and we’re really looking forward to it!
How’s September been for you?
