So homeschooling is tough, okay it has highs and lows. One lesson the boys have been begging for is art, specifically painting. I’m not really a mess person, let alone paint/glitter in a confined space that constantly moves! I finally relented and set up a wonderful art station on the beach. The boys were elated and merrily painted shells, driftwood, stones, pine cones and anything we could find. They were so happily absorbed in painting, I thought I might relax and read my book. Err oops, see what happened next!! Rule one of teaching learnt, remain in charge and present!!!!
