Back to the Grind Stone

Well, it was our first day back "at work" today and it was quite enjoyable actually. The sun shone for most of it which always helps uplift everyones mood doesn't it?

We did a bit to celebrate Earth Day first. We read a thought-provoking story and discussed it in depth. Joseph had to fill in a form for his cub-scouts which was all about recycling and saving energy, so that fitted in nicely and led to a nice discussion about the whys, wheres, hows, and how every little helps. The children then wrote their own Earth Day stories, which Chelsea is yet to finish (as she writes in chapters rather than pages lol). We will be continuing the theme tomorrow with some art work.

Then we sat and did a bit of the MEP maths pages, followed by lunch :o)

After lunch we went out into the garden with our books and read a little, then the kids had a football match whilst I tidied the garden a bit and printed out some more things for them. Then everyone mucked in to help cook dinner, before Joe headed off to Cubs. He has got the St. Georges Day parade on Sunday.


  1. Sounds good!

    The boys had their St. Georges parade last Sunday, hope Joe enjoys it and he has good weather.
