Our home ed group had activities on every day this week, but we are all still very calm after our wonderful laid back Christmas, so we decided to not throw ourselves back into everything straight away and have this week off. The kids did spend HOURS chatting to their friends on the phone and even wrote a couple of letters (snail mail).
Kiki wanted to sort out some fun buttons that my Mom gave us.
She said that it looked like a party :) Googs took this picture...
and this one of his brother and sister writing some silly rhymes/poems.
Making a slide. The reason that the left hand side of the picture is fuzzy is because Googs had progressed (or regressed) from taking photos of his family and toys, and started taking pictures of his nose and inside his mouth :)
And yes, there are a LOT of pictures of pjs. I think that it may be our school uniform - they are comfortable and warm and we have lots of them :D
A late Christmas present arrived this week too. A magic kit. I loved the way that the younger two sat in front of Boo in anticipation of some real magic....they were a little disappointed :P until, of course, she perfects the art.
Googs being roped in to be the audience again and Kiki playing with little white rabbits.
We managed to complete a WONDERFUL puzzle in a couple of days.
Some friends popped in to visit so we decided to make a sticky toffee pudding.
It was very sweet and gooey, simply delicious.
We had so much sauce left over that I didn't want to waste it so I boiled it some until until it turned into toffee.
Since we had left over dates from the other night, and I needed an activity for Googs and Kiki while the older two did their work, we decided to make a date cake.
Googs wanted to do the chopping
Kiki the stirring
and they BOTH licked the bowl :)
Waiting for the cake to bake by finding Wally.
and playing string games
We broke up some of the toffee and added that too so it was extra yummy.
And it snowed again! I love this picture of the boys watching it fall.
The cold weather was perfect for a movie.
And I played around with the waterpaint. After I took this pic I realised that I hadn't shaded under the fairy and now every time I look at the pic it bugs me :) oh well...
