We had a couple of low key days this week as my dad was in hospital and I spent a lot of time with him (he has recovered and is home now), and then yesterday Hannah went to the first lesson of a 6 week bouldering course.
The climbing center is part of an old fort on Portsdown Hill, and the rooms are accessed through the old tunnels under the hill. Hannah DID NOT like going through the tunnels and was consequently pretty anxious when we arrived at the climbing room. She didn't feel at all confident about climbing, but after a little while she settled her nerves and managed some quite nice climbs.
Hopefully she will feel braver about the tunnels next week!
Lastly, today we have been to the East Hampshire home education group where the children began learning about Earth. They made models of the earths' layers and learned about volcanoes, including making a bicarb and vinegar volcanic model.
