We’ve got a hefty weekend of family contact this weekend. I’m really looking forward to seeing my brother and sister, mum and dad, sundry partners and niece mark 3. It’ll be just the thing to keep my mind occupied.
We’ve had a productive day; more reading and maths from both big girls this morning. I gave Maddy a split page exercise book and she wrote about 6 sentences, all really comically illustrated. I must do photos. Breezed through her maths, as did Fran. More Titchy-Witch too.
We had group this afternoon, slightly disorganised but actually it came off okay, with a general art theme. My favourite thing though was that Fran and Maddy were insistent that they should run an activity on their own; they chose it, we planned it and practised it, they packed their own little crate and carried it into the hall, set up themselves and told people what to do. I was very proud of both of them. Fran did wax resist firework skies and Maddy did blow painting. Suddenly i have gone from having very needy girls to having these big independent people. I must admit it was a welcome flavour of things to come.
Group was quiet but pleasant and everyone seemed to have fun
