An ICAD tribute to home education

When I bought a magazine this morning, I was given a complementary copy of a well known national newspaper...rather than waste it, I thought I would just start snipping words that attracted my attention and put these on my index card. It ended up as quite a tribute to the joys of home education, so I thought I would post it on here!

ICAD Ode to Homeschooling

The boys have continued another week with the ICAD Challenge. Here's a card each from their week:

Felt like making pizza

I know, it's been a while :-)

But couldn't resist sharing Waif's felt pizza with you:

We roughly followed this tutorial. I cut the pieces out but Waif did all the sewing. Very proud of him :-)

There is so much I could be reporting here. The boys have been busy making lapbooks, and writing poems and stories, and just generally soaking stuff up, but where's the time?!?!

They are still continuing with Daisy Yellow's ICAD challenge. Here's a couple of recent cards from each of them.
