Wednesday December 16th

Today was our last Home Education Group meeting before Christmas, and what a lovely meeting it was!!
We started off with a Horrible Histories Christmas quiz, then had a Christmas story which was 'Christmas In The Big Woods' from Little House On The Prairie. We finished with the children all filling and decorating Christmas Crackers to take home with them.
When the session finished we all went to the park (where it was even snowing a little bit) and had lunch in the Park Cafe, before heading down to Gunwharf Quays to the Snow Village there. The village has a 45' toboggan run, and a snow garden which is lovely. Hannah had nine......yes nine, turns on the toboggan run and had lots of fun with her friends in the snow garden and came home cold, wet and very, very happy :-)

This time she was spinning as she came down!
I am so pleased that we started our home ed group this year. We have made some lovely friends, had some really good times and learnt a lot too. Hannah and I are both looking forward to many more fun times in the new year :-)

The snow photos are amazing - for a minute I thought you were going to say they were taken in your back garden!
And Hannah was very brave on the toboggan run - that thing is huge. Well done Hannah, now Sofie is nagging me to take her sledding!
