From butterflies to rhinos to red pandas, from elephants to wallabies to giraffes, it is always amazing to see the variety of creatures that God has made.

Since most schools seem to have begun their Easter break this week, we have taken a rest too. We finished off some last pieces of their work on Monday, then on Tuesday the children made lapbooks to record some of the activities we have been doing about North America at our home education group. Now we are officially taking our Easter holiday.

So far, this has meant one day of chores (interspersed with Lego building and other fun), a day out with friends to a park (with a duck race which the children took part in), and a trip to a chocolate museum with some other home educators.

Finally, we have begun our family countdown to Easter with our resurrection eggs. The children anticipate these each year, and it a lovely, simple way to remember the events of Jesus' death and resurrection.
