Last week, from Tuesday to Sunday, we were at Granny and Grandpa’s house. During the week, Daddy and Grandpa weren’t there because they were working, but we were all together again at the weekend. These are just a few of the things we did:
Owl and Monkey worked on their Maths and English, practised the violin and did lots of reading. Owl did some Latin, reviewing his flashcards and teaching some of the words to Monkey. He later had a more in-depth Latin lesson with Grandpa!
Monkey and I played Scrabble, Tiddler did puzzles and I played Frustration several times with Rabbit. They all had a go on the NASA kids website, and did BBC Bitesize (Science and Literacy). We read a lot of stories, including some new ones which we bought with our World book day tokens.
Rabbit and Tiddler iced fairy cakes with Granny.
Rabbit made a cafe with real and toy food, and wrote labels for the food and drinks. She also made Smarties and carried them around the house in a tray, selling them.
Rabbit wrote a pirate story. It was all her own idea.
The cafe game was so much fun, we had to do it again the next day. Rabbit and Monkey made some new signs.
Owl went to a church kids’ club, where they made Easter baskets, played games and ate chocolate.
We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary, and it snowed!
Rabbit and Tiddler made cards for us. All the children performed in a show they made up for us , reading or reciting poems, and dancing.
Owl and Monkey played with Lego a lot. Among other things, they made a statue, a swimming pool and a display of figures from my childhood collection to match a picture in their Lego book.
Lots of works of Art were created.
The last one is Rabbit’s picture of “The Whole Wide World.”
