Its been quite the hive of activity over here this week so far. Daddy was back at work yesterday and so we were back trying to find our routine, which is a)more difficult without a car and b)strange when everyone else is gearing up for the school holidays. A little bit like limbo, we walked to our local shops for supplies which was nice and we are very lucky to have an ok selection of shops in our village including a craft shop, charity shops x2, a good library and a swimming pool. We popped into the library for the second time in four days! They will soon be sick of seeing us in there I think. Signed up for the summer read, which is circus themed, although Bailey declined on the grounds of him being too old and Piper said it was pointless due to her being able to read the 6 required books in 1 afternoon! I really can't argue with her there she is the fastest reader but I felt a tad sad as they have taken part in the library's summer reading challenge for years! I guess another part of having more grown-up children that I will have to get used too. Piper found the books she wanted on the Victorian's, Cordelia found books on the Tudors and Ruben on Ancient Greece. Will it be stressful having four children all doing a different topic each? Yes very likely!
Mega Blocks to win some Halo mega block figure packs. Apparantly you get a pack for each entry you submit so he is in the middle of planning several different ones. Either way I'm not complaining, I'm happy to see him outside and being productive. As well as this he has also started working on Twelfth Night.
Oh, and we also watched this http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b012ltz9/Classroom_Secrets/ together which was very interesting viewing. I laughed quite a lot actually at themy children's comments on the behaviour of the other children, in particular they were very appalled at the behaviour of Maisy but thankfully did not know or read the swear word she wrote on her whiteboard. Yet another good (hunfred!) reasons why we home educate.
