escapade: n. a piece of daring or reckless behaviour. How many times have you been labelled as mad or reckless because you homeschool?
Well I say its time to break down those notions - Bring on the Madness !
Following on from our Japan Activity day in January, we decided it would be a good idea to celebrate 'Girls Festival' (hina matsuri) this year as it fall on March 3rd which is also their grandparents wedding anniversary and could be a combined celebration. Nanny managed to get some cute party favours for them - traditional Kokeshi Dolls.
This lead to a great discussion on traditional Japanese names, how they lacquer wood, what a mizukl tree looks like etc.
