I had a sick day today but as a result of planning the week's lessons we were able to hit the main essentials and I know that if the week had not been planned the kids would have been ratty and bored. We even managed a short trip to Aldi for the weekly shop and the kids had fun in the Halloween aisle!! Benedict found some cute mini coloured bowls for serving nuts and popcorn, I tell ya if that kid doesn't end up working in the catering industry he would make a great party planner! Give him a holiday to plan and decorate for and he is away. Pip has been invited to go "trick or treating" with a family from Brownies and so she found a lovely pink top with a black halloween scene on the front and a cute bat headband to wear.
Here are some random pictures of the past few weeks:
A rare moment the two of them actually working at the same time and in the same place!
