It was Pip's first official home school day today and despite having suffered a disturbed night due to diabetic issues, I was pleased that I managed to help her have a good day :-) Benedict spent the day with Shein as per usual, so he is absent from the photos.
Whilst I was helping Benedict organise his gym items and sort laundry, Pip under the supervision of Dave worked through the next set of Singapore Maths exercises, this girl loves maths and takes after her Dad in this respect! Once Benedict had left for the gym we made our way to the prom:
Choppy and Grey
A message to Dave and I from Pip
We then made our way to The Midland Hotel, for our usual pot of tea and gluten free biscuits. Whilst there we met a lady who was taking part of an amateur photography group and she was having trouble taking a shot of the stairs and the iconic image on the uppermost ceiling. I offered to help and Dave snapped this shot of me!
Having fun with a tiny Cannon bridge camera
The sun came out and so we snapped the obligatory...
... family selfie!
Our next stop was a trip to the library. Pip chose an assortment of reading books both for her and Benedict. After lunch she worked through several pages of a literacy scheme followed by a narration and copy work of her day:
The picture is her jumping for joy in the sand and I'm holding my phone taking a photograph, I love the blue bike :-)
Pip did a great job helping with tea which was earlier than usual since this evening was our first attendance at "Brownies." As is per tradition, Rainbow Guides are carried over the threshold from one group to the other and the delight on her face says it all! It was also a first for me as a Brownie helper, yes I will be spending my Monday evenings with a bunch of lively 7-10 year old girls!
A lovely day x
