Bliss.

I love home education, I love the flexibility that allows me to take advantage of a really nice sunny day.  I love that I get to arrange fun events at a local youth centre for local home ed children, and then privileged to see the creations they come up with. 

Yesterday the children used the craft materials to make all manner of beautiful pictures and sculptures, as well as decorating some plant pots and planting seeds.  The pot luck lunch we ate together was lovely, full of healthy foods too; ham and cheese rolls, sliced peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, fruit, crackers, dips and some sweet stuff, mini baked donuts and mini chocolate chip muffins. 

Afterwards a few of us decided to descend upon the Coastal Park, and we stayed until it was dark and even saw some fire jugglers down on the beach!  Amazing.  The children had a fabulous time and so did the adults. 
It was  a hint of things to come as the days get warmer and longer, and oh my gosh, I can't wait!



The sea looked beautiful, still as a milpond at one point.
