One of the most wonderful things about home education is being able to follow the girls' interests as far as they want to take them. For Lara last winter that was the stars and planets, and we would spend ages working out which was which and looking at different books and websites. She learned loads about them. I really hope she'll continue her interest this winter when the nights are darker, especially as we have been sent a lovely set of 3D glow in the dark stars from University Games.
