We have been lucky enough to have been enjoying the above for the last couple of weeks. Beautiful weather, beautiful location, amazing people and of course contrary to the beliefs of the ‘powers that be’ so much learning continued as ever – all without a scrap of coercing or pre-planning or resource creating. Amongst other things we…

observed, fed and got bitten by fish

trekked through a pine forest and discovered lots of lizards
played water volleyball, football, shuttle board, jenga, table tennis, pool, bat and ball
swam lots both in the sea and the swimming pools
learnt to snorkel
built ever improving sandcastles and sand ball runs
made friends, socialised
learnt and performed dances

played bingo, consolidating knowledge of numbers to 100 in Spanish
learnt numbers to 100 in German

Of course there was so much more.
We met a lovely family who also home educated which is a first for us on our travels (if you are reading sorry I didn’t get to say Goodbye before you left!) Then there were of course lots of School attending families who had to jump through various hoops to achieve their precious family time together!
