Slowing up with homeschooling Thursdays: instead of the weekly meetings with the others, we did just a couple of things, traditional blueberry picking and swimming event, robot-making workshop and a camping on a farm of homeschooling friends. Harvest time.

A trip to Den Haag: English, pinquins and catching up with old-time friends. Harvesting in the garden, lots of raspberry smoothies, apple pies and still tomatoes and cucumbers. September is a busy month: as school holidays are over there is a time to celebrate the beginning of new learning year with Not Back To School Parties and to sort out the routines of regular sports, clubs and other activities.
