…this week has ended better than it started. In fact this morning was one of those mornings when everyone wants you and keeping up is a minor miracle! Fran did a fabulous array of stuff, which despite its boringness in terms of what i want for her, really showed that she is “getting it” in terms of quite a few things. Her writing has come on amazingly and most of her d,b,a,p,y, g type letters are now pretty neat and consistant (relative to what we started with!) plus her desire to write seems to have leapt forward with the confidence that has given her. Her reading is really improving, although that is not as dramatic as her writing right now and her maths is giving her real pleasure, which is nice to see. I’m guessing that this intensive period will fade shortly, or when baby arrives anyway, but hopefully the momentum for just “doing” will continue from her and we can settle back into something a bit more interesting.
So, that was pleasing, plus Moo sat with us and did a number workbook, which predictably suited her down to the ground and Ammi drew and played while we worked. Then they all had a good play while i tidied up downstairs a bit.
We managed to find the dance class today and they all really enjoyed it; its a toddler class but the teacher was fine with the big two being there and they are daintily sized enough not to seem massive in comparison. Ammi was a monkey but definitely spirited rather than spawn of Satanish, which made for a nice change. ;~) (I’m only kidding really, but.. well.. but…) So they had a lovely time and we have a set of classes for the big girls to choose from as well; i’m trying to work out the timetable for the week to suit us best atm but Fran particularly wants to try tap anyway. ROFL…*sings* “What is it that we’re living for? APPLAUSE APPLAUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Hopefully we have also sorted a car too, more later. Which is a good job as this babe is cranking up again this evening…. Hm.
