Astra joined a creative arts day for home educators. She took part in a dance class, a singing class, and a drama class. She decided not to go back to these classes but continues to make up songs most days, and we have been dancing together in front of our large mirrors!
We went to a performance by the Bell Shakespeare company, entitled, ‘Double Trouble’. It was Shakespeare for children, very cleverly written and a great first introduction for Astra. She thoroughly enjoyed the play and we talked a lot about it afterwards.
We went to a dinner party with Andy’s boss. Astra loved the meal and enjoyed the evening a great deal. We’d agreed that if it got boring for her she could use her computer with headphones, and she did do this after the meal was finished. She enjoyed explaining minecraft to the other guests and telling them about the things she had done recently.
