"That was a bearded dragon. It crossed the road at the Hattah Lakes. The he climbed up the bank and behind the tree."
Again Daughter has combined objects of interest from St Clair and Steavenson's Falls into one picture. In the middle of the picture there you can see a flower with a purple seed pod. It must have been some kind of native pea. I was interested because I don't ever recall seeing plants in various states of flowering while also producing seed pods.
This was drawn from Lake Nillacootie, which is not one of our usual haunts. We were there for a break up party with one of our homeschool groups. This is a picture of a dead cicada.
"The cicada was dead. There were others being noisy up the tree. Those ones were alive." (Of course they were. Sometimes this girl is too cute. :) )
Rose-Marie was one of those enthusiastic planners who began researching when she was pregnant with her first. She wanted to homeschool because it sounded like an affordable adventure, then she met her kids personally...
Her young daughter has Echolalia and some processing issues so isn't speaking fluently yet; but she is making good progress as they work and play in Central Victoria, Australia.
