Fun Stuff!!

Last week was quite a quiet week. We spent all of wednesday and thursday waiting in for the plumber to come fix our central heating and hot water so rather than getting out and about Hannah rediscovered games and puzzles! We played lots of memory pairs, and Hannah spent ages doing this lovely puzzle that Grammy bought her for Christmas. She also played lots of Moshi Monsters online.

On friday we spent the afternoon with friends and then in the evening Hannah joined a Brownie pack. She tried out Brownies last year but decided she wasn't quite ready for it then. She was nervous about going this time, but after a little while she was brave enough to join in and make some friends! It helped that her homeschooled friend Mimi was also there and she gave Hannah a bit more confidence to take part in the activities. Hannah came home afterwards really excited about the next meeting and already working on her Winter Badge!!
She made this Pompom Penguin and did an Arctic Animals wordsearch towards her badge.
And on Saturday her Tap Class resumed! This is Hannah waiting to go into the class!
She really enjoys Tap and is working on her Grade One exam.

Hope you got your heat fixed what an awful time to be without hot water:(. We had that happen last year for a week and I was ready to check into a hotel:) How fun that Hannah is doing tap classes

You two always manage to strike the right balance in the home school journey. Susie, do you have set days for desk work or do you go with the flow?

We struggle with so much ongoing sickness at this end, that "doing" school at home can sometimes be a real battle!

Thanks guys, it's lovely to be warm again!
San, i just go with the flow! I try to follow Hannah's interest and energy level and suggest activities to suit - it usually balances out at the end of the week :-)

Sounds like I could learn a thing or two from you guys!

Thanks for the info
