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!

Just another busy day of Homeschooling....

With the rare few moments I have this afternoon I thought I'd sit out on my sunny verandah with my freshly made apple, carrot, tomato and ginger juice and let you all know what we've been up to today!

This morning started off with a nice morning jog with Dane. We managed a steady 2.4kms at a very good time considering Dane is only 6 and new to running with me. I stopped at my favourite Little Green Cafe on the way home and grabbed a morning coffee and came home to delve into the kitchen.

First I made a loaf of my healthy gluten free banana bread (MY OWN RECIPE HERE) followed by some healthy choc goodness balls (MY OWN RECIPE HERE), followed by my delicious smoked salmon dip (recipe to come). I served the boys up some morning tea on the verandah and finished up in the kitchen doing the dishes.

The boys ventured outside to play, jump on the trampoline, ride their bikes and came across a grasshopper being eaten by ants. They decided to save him and take him to a safe spot in the garden. A conversation ensued between the boys as to what food insects like eating and where they lived.

Meanwhile I did some blogging on my new Healthy Blog, aptly named ANGIE'S HEALTHY KITCHEN. I started my new blog 5 days ago and it has already had over 400 hits!! I'm very excited about being able to help people to eat more healthily and think more about being healthy for life.

Not long after the banana bread was ready and so we all sat together and ate it for a light lunch before setting off for a fun outing with our Homeschooling friends at a place called Bricks and Fun at Capalaba. The boys joined their group for a 1 hour session viewing the displays and making their own special creations. They enjoyed it immensely and can't wait to go back very soon!

Arriving home Bailey finished off some Christmas craft and then decided to spend some quiet time in the Lego room building an off road camper and 4 wheel drive. The other boys played nicely with some playdough on the verandah before venturing outside to play with our dog Lilly. They have just now come upstairs for a snack of some vegie crackers but I am sure they'll be back downstairs playing in no time. Bailey will do some reading with me later this evening whilst Dane sits in and listens.

Soon it will be time to go cook some dinner for the family and in a few short hours the boys will all be tucked up into their beds ready our new adventure tomorrow!
