Recently, Charlie was invited back to the school he's been waiting to join since he left his last school in May 2014. He was asked to come in for two taster days. At the end of the first day, he came out beaming. When I asked him what he'd enjoyed, he answered, "Everything!" He said the same on the second day. Apparently, he even enjoyed the Maths, his least favourite subject.

So we were all relieved and delighted when the school offered him a place for September. This means that our accidental home-educating adventure will be coming to an end in a few months' time. 

By sheer coincidence, my elder son's specialist school place was also confirmed on the same day that Charlie received his offer, so we will have two boys starting full-time school in September. In the meantime, Charlie continues to be home educated, whilst Tom is going into his school part time.

As I'm now very behind with the blog, here are a few snaps of our recent excursions.

Anne of Cleves House in Lewes

Trip to the seaside to stay with Granny

Trip to see the decommissioned underground nuclear bunker in Kelvedon

(This should have a blog post all to itself really. My elder son is fascinated by deserted buildings and bunkers, so we visited it for him, mainly, but Charlie was just as captivated. We were not surprised to find that the bunker is used for zombie survival games!).

Looks like an ordinary bunker (apart from the give-away missile)...

...but opens into an underground labyrinth of tunnels and secret rooms.
