Last October my youngest started home school and is progressing nicely. Her older sister today started high school at home. It was a little daunting to sort through the NSW curriculum for all of the key learning areas but the board of studies inspector says we have it all covered nicely. I don't think that home education suits everyone but at this stage it is suitable for us.
There is a new hive in our paddock as well. These bees seem friendly enough and aren't bothered when we get a little close. This hive is situated close to the orchard but at the moment I think gum blossoms are their choice.
The pumpkin for the Junior Landcare growing challenge is growing well. This picture was taken for a monthly weigh-in in January and I think it is twice the size now.
Bye for now,
