Mmm, about time; the Maiden has woken up properly and Spring is here. I don't recall a winter so long before, and even I, a winter lover, had had enough and yearned the warmth of spring sun. The change in seasons is wonderful; revitalising.
From a home ed point of view; Rye is wanting company of friends more and more; and I do wonder if allowing him to go over to my local park, so he can play with local children might fulfill that need a bit more. The park is a mere 30 seconds away, I can see most of it from my lounge window - and I would wander over periodically to check on him...my main concern is that Rye does not always recognise when he's been picked on. I'm conscious at his age,I had immense freedom to roam - though I did live in a small hamlet in the middle of nowhere.. that does make a big difference of course.
