Visiting family

We have been visiting my family in Harrogate today. One of the benefits of home education for us is that we don't live near anyone so we can visit on convenient days instead of having to shoehorn it into weekends along with everything else. Harry and Peter love seeing their family and it is very important to us that they get chance to build relationships with them.

Harry did a cello practise this morning and then we set off, listening to The Horse and His Boy in the car. 

The boys had a great time playing at my mum's house, decorating her stairs with ribbon and fairy lights and we also played at the Valley Gardens playground for the afternoon when the rain stopped. Harry and Peter spent lots of time running circuits around various play equipment and timing each other, which I find to be a great way to tire them out! 

Both boys fell asleep on the way home, after having a bath and putting pyjamas on at my mum's, so I just delivered them into bed when we got home! I then prepared an activity for our Tuesday group on the water cycle, which I will include in a post tomorrow.

  1. We are doing about the water cycle too! We put shaving foam in a bowl with food colouring today and went cloud spotting but sadly there weren't any clouds! We have lots of experiments lined up and a few episodes of The Magic School Bus on Netflix!
