Building a trebuchet.
Dad's workshop proving to be very useful!
The finished result.
Wednesday was Sara's birthday so once Benedict had spent the morning working with Shein, a gang of us headed off to a very nice restaurant for her 22nd birthday celebrations:
Opening presents first thing, hence the pyjamas!
Nanna H listening intently to Mr Chatterbox!
My yummy salad.
Little Miss PJ kept announcing she was, "very hungary!" She ate everything including dessert.
Sara enjoying a burger with side salad and chips.
My gluten free dessert, you cannot beat the good old meringue as a coeliac friendly sweet.
Dave's dad telling a tall tale!
Thursday was our errand and be out of the house day, as my neighbour and friend Yvonne was coming to clean. We came home to a sparkling house and plenty of dirty cloths in the washing machine!! No matter how hard I work cleaning the entire house is beyond my physical abilities, so I keep the bathroom and kitchen in order in addition to daily cooking, washing, teaching and nursing. Fair do's I'd say.
On Friday we used the montessori manipulates to aid sequencing of large numbers. They were an invaluable help and prevented boredom and frustration from creeping in. Our Friday film afternoon was a great hit and is likely to be repeated once we finish our new current reader, which is "Little House on The Prairie". We might have to search you tube for an episode to watch.
Speaking of you tube, I thought I'd leave you with a link to an artist I discovered this week via a friend at prayer group. This song in particular is one of my favourites and indeed might just be an anthem song for me!
Be blessed San x
