Four math logic puzzles, the first part of our history reader, "Lief the Lucky" another Viking tale, grammar exercises on silent letters and adjectives, the first part of our First Communion Programme and our literature narration based on the story of "St George and The Dragon."
Whilst all this was going on Dave and Pip chopped the veggies for our soup lunch and made the bread, they ran errands and coloured with the crayons.
After lunch Benedict finished his narration piece and Helen our diabetes specialist nurse made a home visit. As I thought she concurred that, there is very little we can do to stabilise him when he is having a particularly bad spell and it is a case of micro managing and weathering out the storm. We did actually manage to be in bed by 10pm last night as opposed to the usual crawling under the covers by 1:30am and for that I'm grateful.
Thanks to my friend Eva over at "Untrodden Paths" I've ordered two home economic and responsibility books based on the home schooling child, I was able to track them down from The Book Depository here in the UK and so saved on shipping costs.
I've also ordered maths, English and science books from
they were recommended from the home ed site
The mum and main blogger, Merry has been home edding for many years and apart from running a successful online crafting and toy business she is a mind of information, sharing what has worked and not worked for her and the family in their home school journey. So if she recommends something you can pretty much guarantee it has been thoroughly tested by her gang!
Later in the afternoon Benedict and Pip attended a play date with friends and I had some quiet time at home, catching up and making tea. Sara very kindly settled Pip this evening as Dave has actually gone to a model engineering meeting (a talk about locomotive valve gear- DH), for the first time in ages. Benedict and I wrapped up today's home school with our weekly spellings, writing them and sorting into dictionary format as well as the drawing linked to his chosen narration on St George. He is currently playing with Lego but it is now supper time and story time, I also have the kitchen to sort and tidy, so better get on with it!
