Joining Aunty Leila over on here:
Big Sister Kath/Youngest Twin (eldest twin in the background picture) and baby sister.
A very large Valentine bouquet for Kath from her beau Steve. Inter flora must have done a roaring trade that day!
Happily counting coins with Grandad H
Happy Lego Spaceship Building...
... complete with pull down staircase and star wars storm trooper in the background.
Happily baking with Mummy.
Yummy Banana Coconut Oat Cookies with Chocolate Chips.
Arabian Knights perchance? or...
... a Jedi warrior... it's amazing what you can do with a couple of muslin squares!
Lego, Lego everywhere but thanks to the green storage trays it is an easy job to tidy up!
A big thanks also to my friend Eva.
This gal has helped me in so many ways since we began our blogging friendship well over a year ago. Through her faithful postings I've gained insight and helpful links, she has blessed me with her words of encouragement and loving prayers and when I've been at a loss she's given her time through email contact too.
So it is entirely due to her that we used lap books as a means of learning this past week. Benedict and I were both worn out from sickness management but I was acutely aware that, we also ideally needed to be doing "something". Working on the long forgotten space lap book totally fitted that bill and I'm pleased to report that we have made good progress.
Colouring the space man for the front cover.
We also worked on our Valentine gifts once again Eva's Valentine blog post gave me the link I needed:
Home made matchboxes.
A box in progress.
Paper Dali very kindly provided the St Valentine picture and the front cover verse.
As a passing nod to our Age of Grace Curriculum Benedict worked on some independent crafting of his own:
Construction in progress... totally love it that he still opens his mouth when cutting with scissors!!
One free form paper castle designed and constructed by Benedict.
I've learnt a lot these past few weeks of continued sickness, the primary lesson being that, learning can and does assume many forms. All things considered, I think we're doing just fine.
