( Not ) Back To School Traditions


Yesterday was our first day back at lessons since the Summer break.

As always, we had our traditions to follow:

The annual photo shoot




A new daily school verse


Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To grow more loving every day.

Rebecca Weston – 1890

Our morning was simple; more of an easing into the new end-of-Summer rhythm, than of serious school work.


We began to work on our individual ‘Wheel of the Year’ that we shall each be keeping



As always, we had Alphabet Soup for lunch. This was followed by a quick trip for the dentist for Rose, to check her over after The Accident.

Back home for our ‘Back to School’ tea party; Gingerbread biscuits and spiced apple juice (recipe below). The girls ate and I read some lovely, simple end of summer nature stories.

It was a good day….



Spiced Apple Juice

Pour 1 bottle of fresh apple juice into a pan.

Add about 5 whole cloves and a cinnamon stick.

Warm gently without allowing to simmer or boil.


(We always add a little water to our juice)
