We had a Very Merry Unbirthday, indeed!
Freeschoolin' Daddy and Hope (6) decided to bake a cake together while they stayed up all night. We watched Alice In Wonderland and had a lovely little Unbirthday celebration; Hope loved lighting and blowing the candles out!
We also took advantage of the uncrowded beach and warm weather; summer isn't over for us!
Hope requested some modeling clay play so we all had some fun doing that together. We LOVE art around here.
Note the messy kitchen. We LIVE in our home; it's not a museum.
Our local Un/Homeschool Club had a park meet-up so we got to visit old and new friends!
Of course there is no shortage of things to explore on the 3 acres of land we live on in a rural area just outside Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
We played and gardened in the rain, caught snakes and snails and had amazing roleplay adventures.
We've started to develop a rythym that moves with the seasons. Now is the time we take advantage of all things green and outside because they will quickly fade.
We focus on hitting up as many parks as possible because Hope LOVES them. We visit the beach on as many days as the weather will allow. (There's still some left so far! )
We make fires, we greet the animals and watch the changes in the earth around us as fall begins. Forest/Natureschooling is a big part of our Freeschoolin' life; we learn so much vital information from the planet we live on.
Soon enough it will be time for more indoor things. For warm recipes to cook up together, making fun seasonal decorations and indoor projects we don't have time for when we're outside all the time.
When we follow the flow of the energy around us, we don't collide with life the way we used to trying to meet deadlines or schedules. We learn easily, deeply; together.
This is Freeschoolin'. This is bliss.
So glad to have you along for the journey; we love our Freeschoolin' Family! ( That's you! )
Much Love ALWAYS,
Wendy - Freeschoolin' Mommy
