Home school in Alice

So… I have set up our school room and the kids love it… you can’t see by the photos, but there is loads of space and they can find things that were before away in a tall cupboard. Our first day we painted what were meant to be family portraits, but (this is when I’d love to see a girl’s perspective) we got Dad holding a gun in one and my favourite, Zion said his was Dad in a storm… random 3 year old creative brain working… Love it. will take some pics so you can see the creative genius at work 🙂 . So after our Bible morning fix we go for a swim and then some phonics work (need to get back into routine where actually piano practise was first.

Very excited, this week we begin Pitjintjara lessons… although this isn’t necessarily the local language (Arrente is) but many of the people from our church come from ernabella and Amata and they speak Pitjintjara…. should be fun… See if I can get some videos uploaded at some stage for you to hear our boys once they learn some. They still remember a lot of the Spanish that they learnt from Carol in Young… so I look forward to see how quick hey learn this.

    How awesome is that room…………………space space you have done an excellent job Mrs Matson! My photos are coming I have painted etc……………but still have not finished, sitting is still a problem. Love you and am so so so glad you are blogging!

    • I know the space is amazing! It’s double the size you can see in the pic. I was standing in the middle of the room when I took the photo… This room will also be used for teams when they come, but they only come usually in the school hols… It even has a toilet and shower 🙂 when are you visiting again ;-).
      Looking forward to seeing that filing cabinet… praying for you and your body that healing flows… love ya Cathy!
