A beautiful day on the farm; learning about alpacas, how to approach them, how to pat them and how to feed them. After a little trepidation, my littles carefully walked towards these beautiful animals and quietly giggled as they ate from their hands.

We’re starting to build our community; we’ve joined the local homeschooling group. Today I sat in the sunshine watching Jack perched on a rock wall deep in conversation with a 14-yr old boy; Sarah, running with childhood abandonment, ribbons wands flying behind her, being chased by a little 3-yr old. A perfect day.

  1. Such interesting creatures, my nan used to have alpacas- they’re a pretty unique animal & such crazy hair do’s
    How brave are your children jumping in to a new experience like this

  11. Such gorgeous photos, what a lovely day. I’m so pleased that you’ve found some connections for your home schooling community too x

    1. We had such a wonderful day that it really made me want to go along to more of our homeschooling communities activities/outings. They meet once a week as a big group and we haven’t been along to many because I thought the activity was for older children but I realised when we were at the farm just how many kids there were around Jack and Sarah’s age that come along just to interact and play. It was really wonderful.
