A Productive Day

Funny how blue skies and sunshine can spur you on :-)  We managed all the items on our to-do list which I think is the first time ever!  In no particular order:

We managed a weekly home blessing hour a la Fly Lady, surfaces dusted with a swiffer brush, floors cleaned, mirrors wiped and the bathroom given a once over.

Pip mowed the lawns and Benedict undertook all the meal prep for the day, vegetable and chicken soup for lunch and lasagne for tea.

Ben helped with the recycling.

Pip completed all her home school lessons:  Singapore maths, spellings, times tables practice, read aloud and adding another floor to her Egyptian house.

Three loads of laundry were washed, aired and put away.

I made banana muffins and a start on another project bag for the craft stall.

Ben has been working on an Age of Empires scenario with an Egyptian theme.  He has undertaken all sorts of research for this project and has worked really hard.

Tomorrow we are home schooling with friends and I'm looking forward to a quieter day!

  4. The garden looks beautiful and congrats to Pip and Benedict for all their hard work and for finishing assignments. And you too! (I hope to make banana muffins today, also). I love the Egyptian house and Ben's meals always sound so amazing :)

  5. I remember making similar masks with my Year 5 class when I was teaching. They really enjoyed the activity - messy (especially with 30 children) but fun! You might want to see if you can find the book "The Time Travelling Cat" which we used during the project. Again, the children liked the story.(by Julia Jarman)
