The kids have been busy with meet ups, home school work and helping around the home. Pip stayed with friends in Liverpool last week for three days, she stopped with homeschool friends ( we holidayed with them last year in Walsingham) and had a fab time. Benedict is going on his very first sleep over with another home school family tomorrow and will also be attending his first ever woodturning class, needless to say he is super excited :-)
Here are some pictures of our days this past week:
Benedict has been responsible for some rather tasty treats from the kitchen this past week. Not only does he make delicious food he is "epic" when it comes to the post food prep and post meal clean up. That boy is "King Cuisine" :-)
Junior Science ~ Our Bodies
Did you know that an adult intestine is 10 metres long?
Measuring using Dad's old metre rule from his civils days with the railway :-)
Mum's intestine started in the conservatory ...
... through the lounge ...
... down the hallway and up the stairs and ...
... landing in Pip's bedroom. Blimey no wonder I have stomach ache!
Our next lesson was demonstrating "peristalsis" and the proof that you can actually eat whilst standing on your head :-)
It has been a very loong time since I did one of these! Pip thought it hilarious :-) The last shot albeit red faced is me eating a rice cake, lol!
Our last practical experiment for the day was to make a plastic lung and the Usborne 1000 science experiments book was a great help:
Left to right, deflated and inflated.
A Dad and Son Day
On Thursday Pip was away staying with friends for a few days and I attended an away day at Rydal Hall, so it was the lads in charge :-) A surprise trip to Benedict's favourite eating place was planned:
Summer Stripes, kool aid dyed yarn, aestlight shawl.
I guess you could say, "that's a wrap!" I really must pop by on a regular basis thus sparing you dear reader from an epic photo fest!
Be Blessed xx
