We have had a great Monday and Tuesday of this week.  The kids are now totally on task and are enjoying the topics we have for this term, especially Statistics.  The last two days we had been using hot dog toppings as a way of providing data for some statistical investigations.  The kids have really explored and understood how statistics provides us with a way of understanding peoples choices, which is cool.  They have done so well with their math this week I made them hot dogs as a treat for lunch so they could add their own favourite topping combination!

We have some really exciting trips coming up in the next couple of weeks - Te Papa in Wellington (thanks to some $1 flights), a trip with other home schoolers to Howick Historic Village (yikes need to make some period costumes!), an overnight tramp in the Waitakere ranges, and in a months time a trip to New Plymouth to see Carolyn and Joe and Mt Taranaki (again thanks to some $1 flights).  Two of these trips would not have been economically possible without the $1 grab-a-seat deals I got and I am so thankful for picking them up and being able to broaden our school trip portfolio!
Can finally add photos, us at the Summit of Sunrise Hut Trail
