Through The Lens










Our annual Home Educators Sports Day was held on Monday. Unfortunately three of our children were unwell with a feverish virus and sadly had to miss out. Those who did attend on this sunny winter day had a wonderful time catching up with friends and enjoying a range of track and field events. Each child was awarded a certificate at the end of the day with a sticker for each event they participated in.








The stillness of early morning brings quiet joys for those who watch carefully.




The Owl quilt panel is now completed and work is underway on a smaller Christmas panel (more photos soon). I am thoroughly enjoying the detailed stitching using my new machine, often sewing in small snatches throughout the day from the side table where the machine now rests, rather than waiting for a cleared homeschool/dining table space.

Hope your feverish ones are all better, Karen. I love seeing children out running/playing in the fresh air. (Or as my grandson, Jack likes to say, "Fresh airs."
