So, we are a home learning family. I always planned to give the girls the option of home learning, and when I could no longer find a day care option I was happy with, we simply made home learning an option a little earlier than I had planned.
Now, the girls are happy, and I'm happy, we have loads of fun and the girls are not getting less intelligent, so we remain a proud home learning family.
As such, we are seen as slightly unconventional (which suits me fine!), and as slightly unconventional and unschooled children, you would expect their favourite pass times to be similarly unconventional, yes?
Er, not so.
The Kewl girls' favourite game at present, is "Schools". (Yes that's right - My unschooled children love playing schools. So what?!)
This morning, Miss J was being teacher. Her class of three (me included) sat before her and she gave her good morning speech....
Miss J, "Good morning class..." [expectant pause] "You've got to say good morning back!"
Miss F, Miss V and myself, "Good morning Miss J."
Miss J, "Good. I mean OK. Umm... Today we are going to learn about farts! I will demonstrate!"
And this, I believe, is where Miss J took her unconventional badge and stuck it proudly on her forehead....
Miss V, "Eww! Miss J you farted!"
Miss J, "Na ah - I learned something!"
