"The fungus among us"

I have loved this Autumn, Opeie and I have been on so many homeschooling adventures and even though I have my 'am I doing enough' moments. I am confident that Opeie has learnt a lot over the last few months and most importantly has loved every minute of it. Homeschooling has been amazing since day one, being able to learn while being outdoors and doing exactly as we please has had an amazing impact on Opeie and he is the happiest and most loving child, I am so proud of how he is growing. Our outings throughout the week are a mixture of mini games and investigation that are ongoing. One of those, which started during the early Autumn months was fungi hunting.

It all started when we spotted fungi straight out of a Disney movie. I've never seen red toadstools (The fly Agaric) growing anywhere before so it was a nice surprise and kick-started a fungi hunt everywhere we went adventuring. Our collection is just getting started but I wanted to share the photos that we have collected so far which Opeie is really excited about. I named the post after a mushroom burger that I had in Orlando earlier in the year at the vegan restaurant Ethos. So here they are "The Fungus Among us".
