And The World Keeps Turning…

September 16-18

The day after a big visit like we had over the weekend is always a bit of a drag. So I kept it relatively light school wise and had the kids jump right into their journals and drawing special pictures from their favourite moments of the weekend.101_4556

101_4558101_4559The kids even took initiative and during my bath played a rather quiet and surprisingly battle free game of Carcassonne! Team work, problem solving, math… it was all there and all their choice!101_4560

With a new week it was also time to start a new topic … EGYPT, though of course we still need to finish off the lions. That will take a little time and I want Egypt going and at least mostly done before all our library books are no longer able to be renewed.101_4561

We are still enjoying the Grandma braids. I really need to learn how to French braid!101_4562

On Tuesday my boys were HUGE helpers and made their lunches and the lunches for the girls! All I had to do was put everything on the table. They do love being independent.101_4563

I am so impressed by how hard the kids are working on things. Sometimes even offering to do extra of this or colour one more thing. It really does offset the rest of the frustrations and arguments.101_4565

Early morning cartoons!
