First Day of School…

Okay so it wasn’t a traditional start to School for the year…but we’re underway. It’s funny you know…but I never thought I’d be a Home-schooling Mum. It was never even a blip on my radar. In fact, the whole idea brought forth emotions of terror and acute self-consciousness. I took a good long look at my gaps in learning, as well as a very real look at practical things like tolerance, Patience, Wisdom, Encouragement….and thought “I can’t do this!!!!” My family think otherwise, so here I am. Fresh, nervous and uncertain of what’s to come…

We find ourselves beginning with very few resources so it’ll be a bumpy start, but a start is made nonetheless. We took the obligatory first day of School pics and nuckled down with establishing a routine… Oh and we are in The Lea Scout Campsite, between Kingston and Hobart…173 Hectares of Bush, and we’re the only campers! Very quiet and very nice…just a wee bit cool overnight.

Note: We have a tradition of the kids holding up their fingers to indicate their year level…I just love the way they put their own personality on it, and had to include a couple of extra shots cos they were so cool! (Remember, if you click on a photo it will open up larger)

Hey guys... I too am back at school, Studying such wonderful topics as truth tables and boolean algebra. Don't forget if you ever find you need an extra tutor the phone and e-mail are always options.

Study Hard !!!!!
