I think Indi has found his vocation – pizza making. He was so happy this morning. But maybe it wasn’t the pizza making. Maybe it was the awesome company, for him and for me! He was surrounded by friends he didn’t have a year ago. All of whom would be in different years to him in school, and therefore he would have been unlikely to mix with them in the playground. And half of them were girls. In this environment (and I love this fact) none of that matters. They’re all blissfully unaware of age and gender. I also ran into friends who I’d already seen this week, friends I’d seen a month ago at another event, friends who had just had babies and new friends also. It is so joyful, I can’t tell you, to be making really good friends when you’re nearly forty. I’d never have thought it possible a year ago.
The workshop started at 9.30am, and was really well attended.
The guy delivering the workshop was friendly and really good with the kids – and they learnt about the origins of pizza, and the margherita!
Indi got to grips with the dough, and we discovered just how forgiving it was as they were shown how to knead it and spread it into some truly organic shapes. They had a blast.
Slapping the dough!
Throwing it from hand to hand!
Adding the passata…Love how busy they all are here.
Adding some cheese..mmmm!
And admiring the finished cooked product. They all got a certificate and a round of applause at the end.
And eating it in the park in the sunshine was the best.
What a great morning – I am so appreciative of all the fantastic home ed people who constantly organise trips and events to keep our little and big ones so inspired.
Oh – and one week until due date too! 😉
