All spent ages curled up in my bed this morning, being silly. Times like that i love being them other of all those daughters – i’m so looking forward to still being curled up in bed with them all for snuggly girly chats for years to come 🙂
mentally busy again this morning (i’ve changed the tag of the blog, have you noticed? So feel i need to add business stuff in to give warts and all of WAHMness to it now!) but we did really well and it was a group effort. Fran did the fraction section of Singapore 2B all on her own without any help and got 100%. She was so chuffed with herself and i was so pleased she’d tackled something so new with no fuss and done so well that i let her off English! She did finish the Florence book though and i’m hoping to get her to narrate it to me next week and maybe go over some more stuff about it with me. Then she and i spent ages sending each other Animal Crossing letters and i was even more impressed by her putting apostrophes into her sentences!
Maddy did loads more EC and some ETC on her own too; i watched herECing and was amazed to see her building completely new 5 letter words by sounding out! 😯 Where’d she learn that then?
Then they all retired to the garden and Happy Streeted, bow and arrowed and built dens. They had such a great time and i just loved sitting and listening to them play.
This afternoon Maddy and Amelie (who are still mainly at daggers drawn 🙄 ) played for more than an hour building circuits with the new kit and launching a helicopter wheel. They just had such fun together and i loved it being so autonomous; i had planned (again!) to do our battery kit but there was clearly no point interupting such self directed learning for a mere piece of mummy directed stuff!
Neighbours came for the later afternoon and loads of playing occurred; their mum and i gossiped and laughed at how much the two little ones hate each other. Shades of the original Amelie and Buttercup relationship there!
Right – erm… Big Brother. I backed Richard to win initially – but boy do i hate that gay man bully/vulnerable act. Blech. Oh bother. It wasn’t him.
