As always, a mixed bag weather-wise. Rose was padding in the pond at the beginning of the week, (I know, it’s only just turned April, but she’s a pretty hardy child!) and by the end, we were all wrapped up again in our woollens!
Here are my wee nature group: We didn’t do any journaling this week, I just let them play and explore. The weather was so fine, we stayed out much longer than usual. We then retuned home for lunch and journaling, but the girls became interested in a snail they found in the garden, and I decided to leave them to more exploration.
The rest of the week has not been conducive to study. Rose has been poorly with a virus, and sadly her beloved guinea pig, Nibbler passed away. Here they are together in happier times.
Here is my journal for the week. The Dog Violets are beginning to bloom along my garden path, which is always such a joy! I also cheated a little, and sketched the wee blackbird we spotted last week.

“The question is not, “how much does the youth know?” when he has finished his education, but “how much does he care?” and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”
