Max and I went to register Ben today, something that, for simplicity, has to be done in the next town. I wanted to do it here, in the one that the girls were registered at, as only Freddie was registered at the other one and i thought it would be very triggery but in the end it was okay. I navigated the ‘how many other children do you have’ entry with more grace than I sometimes have. So he is now officially Benedict James George and very gorgeous with it. He behaved impeccably, even had a little feed out without our trusty cushion and that was after two nights with lying down feeds.
The 3 younger girls were with Zoe, getting back to our art etc days which we’ve really missed. Zoe has blogged our start on portraits and character drawing and she clearly did a fab job with them 🙂 the work they brought home was brilliant. Fran meanwhile was doing her first ever exams in school, which pleased her less. However, I’ll show off her sports science marks as she has done so well and I am so proud of her hard work.
Josie did this and then went on, after looking at the Lego website, to make a puddle duck pond. She’s played with it all day, very especially giving life and adventures and much love to the Freddie duckling. Gulp.
Amelie did a troll destroying a church (!)
and Maddy did a really brilliant werewolf scene.
Today they’ve picked a job they’d like a robot for and designed it. They’ve had a ball. I’m going to do a week of them and gradually aim for more complicated weekly one, like we’ve done with drawing recently. Anyone fancy joining in?
