My mum lives two and a half hours’ drive away. Not as far as some, but far enough that a trip has to be somewhat carefully planned and diarised. Well, when we had children in school, that is.
Now we can go up anytime we fancy. So we went up on a Wednesday, just over a week ago.
We hadn’t been there long when the childrens’ grandad asked if they would like to go flying in his plane that afternoon? Would they?!
Their grandad showed them how to prepare the plane for flying, and let them fly it themselves too! The three of them had a fantastic time, while mum & I waited on the ground in the sunshine with my youngest, Bonnie.
Not every homeschooling day is like this, but this is one to keep me going when times get tough.
