We've been making an effort to spend time in the garden this last week soaking up as much of the sunshine as we've been at home to catch.
I actually got a photo of all 4, all looking at the camera and no one pulling a silly face... serious mum win!
She might love being outside but she really does hate the light in her eyes... so so cute though.
Its the only thing so far she plays with but doesn't try to eat... this might bode well for sandy beaches.
The kids asked for bird feeders as part of our spring season crafts, so having decorated them last week, we finally got round to filling and hanging them.
They have grand plans for bird watching from the conservatory and drawing but I'm not sure how quickly the birds will notice their 'cafes'. We do have a very large bird population but thats mainly due to the abundance of food already available for them.
Thea and I harvested the dandelion heads today and began drying them in preparation to make some infused oil, which we will then use to make a cream for her eczema.
As botany is our main science project in our curriculum, they have finally gotten their chance to get there hands on some real potion making and the lists they are coming up with of things to try is daunting. Having said that, its exactly the kind of education I love... I personally get in enjoy it, it's hands on and memorable and has real world application in that they are growing up with not only the science but the tangible means to care for themselves naturally.
