We were in the paper!

Great excitement here! Our local paper ran an article on homeschooling and we were interviewed for it. The reporter chatted to me over the phone last Friday and on Monday the photographer came out. You can imagine the state the house was in the day after Billy's party! I was still stuffing things in the dishwasher and cupboards when he arrived!

The photographer took about 300 photos while he was here - and *one* was in the paper! It *is* a good one though :) I'd love to get hold of some of the others he took, he showed us a couple on the viewfinder and they were great too.

Anyway it was a good article, very positive to homeschooling, so I was pleased. Billy was very blase about being in the paper - as he said to me "but Mummy, it's the fourth time I've had my photo in the paper!".. All at the tender age of 6!!

Wow, well done! And what a terrific photo, you should definitely get a copy of it. LOL at stuffing things in the dishwasher to get them out of the way, I thought that was just me ;-)
