Well, Sarah and the kids are away, so Dad has been draughted in to host this weeks show.

I talk about my lack of knowledge when it comes to home education. I look at things from the working partners aspect rather than the main home educating partner. Listen as I try to make sense of it all. Maybe there will be a few partners out there that will relate?

We also pre-recorded a segment with the full gang about our brilliant trip to Flamingo Land to a home education day we went on last week. We have a guided tour round the zoo and have a meet and greet the creature. An excellent day with a hefty discount for home educating families.
