November!! (aaarg)

A lot of changes and generally being busy (and not in the mood for blogging) meant: no news for more than a month!

Changes: from unschooling to not really unschooling anymore. Big change. Good change. I don't regret unschooling; it has been very good for us as a family. I've really tried/done it. But now it's time to change.

An other change is our move back to Holland. No definite plans yet, no date set, but of course, it keeps our minds and hearts busy!

I'm more than ever in the last two years enjoying living here, like this sunrise from our guest room..

What we did in November:

Bonfire (All Saints) at our church on November the 1st

Playing Minecraft, still a big hit and lots of friends who enjoy playing it as well. And Boaz had a hair cut. After nearly 4 months of head lice, I was so fed up with it, that we chopped it off, and I haven't seen lice ever since! Good stuff!! 

We've also seen friends quite often...


Levi getting his jetpack

or here....(the way my English friends drink their tea....brrrrrrr! They keep the tea bag in (only one cup!) for about 5 minutes and then squeeeeeeze the last bit out of that tea thingy with a spoon --> must be soooooo strong!!!)

Boaz is doing really well with swimming. He's only had 17 lessons so far and has (I think) almost passed the equivalent of the Dutch A Diploma. And there are more things he can do than just swimming; his teacher is amazing! I've asked his teacher if he could do the A diploma with Boaz, so here's Boaz swimming with his clothes on :)

He loves his teacher, who is so good!! And makes the lessons fun. He taught Boaz how to make his trousers float!

We went to the Rainbow Fun House a couple of times (again). The boys love this indoor play area!

I had a body shop party...that was really good! 

And a Mom's Night Out. 

We've been to my twin sister (hi Emma! ;)))  and Josh almost every week.

Job has been away a couple of nights (which I don't like!)

We've been to Pottery again (the boys weren't really enthusiastic this time :(()

We've been to Sheppy's Cider in Taunton, to see how Cider is made. 

We've seen the lights being turned on in Paignton, quite a happening!

We've been on the Santa Train (with friends) from Buckfastleigh to Totnes and back.

Adam is starting to enjoy cooking, nice! :)

Adam and Boaz went to a birthday party.
We went to Wistman's Wood on Dartmoor (tick one)

And we went to London with the boys (big tick two!) for two days and saw all the highlights (just a few photo's).  


Our Franciscus :))


 A random picture of a random morning in our house :)
This is about what I can remember we did. Seems a lot, doesn't really feel busy.

Maybe more about our 'new style' homeschooling next time :)
