We're in the paper - again!


We were interviewed about homeschooling for our local paper yesterday - article here. The article was nicely done, without the usual "expert" they normally have to give the counter argument of how our children need to be "socialised" by going to school.

Almost 12 months ago, we were interviewed for another paper and they used a very similar set up for the photo. If we keep this up, I'll be able to use it as our annual school photo :)

That's so great Kez! The pic is a little too serious though. Next year, can you get a giggling one to balance it all out? LOL. Thank you for being such a great home ed advocate! xx

Tell me about it Bel! Particularly since I'd only just been telling the reporter that we did mostly hands-on stuff rather than workbooks, so how does the photographer pose us??! With a pile of books! (Which btw are actually a pile of gardening books rather than school books lol).
