Welcome to our world of 4 boys, Autism, Homeschooling and life in general.

Hi I'm Angie, busy Homeschooling Mum of 4 young boys aged between 4 and 11 yrs.

Bailey (11) is a huge car enthusiast, particularly classic cars, VW 'Herbie' beetles and VW Combi vans. Bailey lives with Autism (ASD) and Epilepsy but does very well coping with everyday life these days since we made the change to homeschooling back in 2010.

Dane (8) enjoys playing guitar, building Lego masterpieces and all things superhero! Dane also lives with a form of Autism (Aspergers) and a Language developmental delay (Apraxia of speech).

Ehren (5) is our gentle 'giant' and is a keen student in our Homeschool classroom. He enjoys both physical and mental pursuits and has a clear interest in currency!

Fraser (aged 4) is our little pocket rocket. He's a confident, head-strong little boy who never stops talking, singing or dancing!

Follow us on our journey as we learn about the world around us in our own unique way!

Last week our boys were lucky enough to join their Homeschool group of friends for an excursion to a great place up at Tamborine Mountain, Thunderbird Park. The place gets it's name from the egg shaped rocks that can be found in the area. If you stretch your imagination a little you may even think of the 'eggs' as belonging to a prehistoric bird, hence the term 'Thunderbird'. The park uses a Pterodactyl as it's logo which is quite fitting.

We spent the day before the excursion up on the mountain with friends who were camping there for a few days. We would've joined them if Clif could have taken a couple of days of work but we enjoyed spending the day before making a fire, damper and cooking it over the coals nevertheless!

The excursion itself consisted of 4 activities, Archery, Rock Fossicking, Bush art and then at the end of the day all the groups came together for a bushwalk and to learn some Bush survival skills from our guide. The boys enjoyed the day immensely, having fun with their friends and learning new skills.

Here are a few pictures of our day.

Bailey really enjoyed the Archery. Here he is in green shooting for the target.

This is the first day at camp with friends after one of the Dads showed the kids how to make and cook damper.
