Although the weather is still a little chilly we have been lucky to have a run of blue skies and sunshine. I absolutely love seeing my biggies choosing to go outside and I have abandoned many plans to give them the freedom to just ‘be’ in the garden. Wildlife has been found and observed, tepees constructed, trees climbed, camps built, ball games played. Now they are getting older they are not quite such ‘all weather’ outdoorsy players so I love seeing them get back to nature and hear all the giggles, make belief games and plans. Of course Bean loves having them all outside playing games with him and showing him things.
It feels as though the family/home educating dynamics are shifting again a little. We have stayed quite close to home during my pregnancy and Baby Beans first year. As he is now in his second year and extremely energetic and mobile we are finding it easier to get out of the home and into the big wide world again. Just following the child and adapting as necessary.
