Happy 11th Birthday Hannah!

Yesterday Hannah turned 11 years old! We had a lovely day visiting Manor Farm ( it's Hannah's birthday tradition!) and then a family pizza party at home in the evening.

We spied a fairy house in the geese field

Hannah really likes the milking sessions and always wants to have a go.

Waiting For Summer...............

........but it's taking far too long to arrive! So we've put the pool up anyway, and Hannah is wearing double wet suits until it warms up!

Hannah has seen a lot of friends this week!

She has been riding (in the rain) with a friend,

We spent an afternoon at the farm with friends from Purple Monkey Living ,

The girls may have been a little excited!

We have had friends over for lunch and play, Shopkins and minecraft have been favourites this week.

and Hannah has also seen friends at drama group, the adventure playground, bouldering and she enjoyed seeing her friend Finn at the East Hampshire group today. 

It's been a busy week!

Fossil Hunt At Bracklesham Bay

Last weekend we joined an organised fossil hunt for the home education group. The children had a talk from an expert to begin, and were shown examples of what we might find, and then set off along the beach hunting! The walk led us along to the fossil beds which were really interesting, and very different from anything we were expecting.

We collected a bag full of fossils to bring home, and Hannah received an identification sheet from the event leader. She has been washing and identifying fossils ever since!

Rock Up !

On Friday we joined our home schooling friends for another session at Rock Up in Whitely. Hannah is getting much stronger and braver since she has been bouldering each week, and consequently enjoyed Rock Up even more this time around.

As an added bonus she got to spend the whole session with a friend that she hadn't seen for ages, and absolutely adores, and went shopping for Shopkins afterwards - pretty much perfect then!!

What We've Been Doing.....

Apart from the London Pet show, the last week has been all about riding, climbing, exploring and hanging out with friends.

We have been exploring in our local area. These pictures are all taken in the park just across from our house. It's a lovely space and has a large fallen tree trunk that Hannah calls 'The Log', and loves to play on.

Hannah has been bouldering again. The class was held in a different climbing room this time, and was much more difficult, but nevertheless it was the session she has enjoyed the most so far!

We have been to Portsmouth to meet up with the home education group in a park there. Hannah really enjoyed catching up with some friends that she hadn't seen for a while.

 Very spontaneous and completely unposed, well done girls !!

and there has been riding, lots of riding!

This is Tilly, Hannah's most favourite pony in the whole world - ever!
