Two posts in two days is rare for me! After a really quiet week we’ve quite a productive (and sunny) day. S had her last day at preschool so is now officially being home educated. The children all rode their bikes to drop her off which was nice as it got rid of a little energy.
When we got home E wanted to spend time painting. It was lovely to see him sitting happy and engaged in something he enjoys. He spent quite a while painting and little S sat up to table next to him and did some colouring.
R wanted to make gingerbread men. She did it all on her own, reading the recipe, working out measurements, weighing, mixing and cutting shapes, while I supervised (I did the oven bit) Little S helped a bit too.
E decided he wanted to do some baking too and did a chocolate tray bake. While it was cooking he went and played with his Warhammer figures and soldiers.
I managed to tidy up and do a tiny bit in the garden with Little S helping, she learnt some plant names too.
Then we rode back up to collect S and pop into the post office. The children were then able to play out with their friends. All in all a relaxed and happy day.
