“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
by Kahlil Gibran
I’ve not posted anything about lock down and how we are getting on with it on my blog yet so I thought I would give you all a little update on how we are are and what sort of things we have been up to this past week.
We are on our 7th week here. This kids are coping with it incredibly well and I am so blooming proud of them, we have hardly had many arguments or moaning about being bored which is a result as I have been trying my hardest to keep them busy.
Homeschooling started off great but after two days I relaxed a lot with the girls a little however Leo still has to stay in routine as he will be going into Year 10 in September. Leo’s History teacher emailed me this week to tell me how impressed he was at the standard of work Leo is producing and that its all been sent in on time, Leo was chuffed and loved the appreciation.
I have been going to see my mum every Saturday, taking a flask of tea, my chair and blanket so I can sit with her (3 metres apart ) in the garden and spent time with her as she gets very lonely through all of this. It gives us both something to look forward to each week.
We have been playing Bingo every night with the kid’s. They all have their own clipboards with their tickets and they really look forward to playing every evening. They only win a bag of sweets but they love it.
We received our baby caterpillars 15 days ago and we have been so fascinated watching them grow from being tiny to now being all wrapped up snug in their cocoons. Now they are in their net and we are anxiously waiting for them to hatch.
This week I made some of Donna’s (What the Red Head Said) slow cook white chocolate fudge. They tasted amazing so next time I am making milk choc fudge.
We have been going enjoying long dog walks together for our daily exercise which Rosie has been loving. She received a Lickimat this week from our Amazon wish list group over on Face book and she loves it.
The girls wanted to do a YouTube challenge so, earlier this week they did each other’s make up blindfolded.
