Woo hoo – school’s out for summer! The end of term was pretty hectic, but we’ve had a more relaxed weekend, and it’s been good to start to catch up with ourselves a little.
Some beautiful things from the weekend:
1) Friday night dinner – delicious, eminently repeatable, and isn’t the colour fantastic? It isn’t every day you get a pink dinner!
2) Saturday night clear-out… we looked through the mountain of schoolwork brought home by the kids over the last few weeks, and reduced it to a few special representative items.
M found it a fairly easy process, A wanted to keep most of it, so a more painful process for him. We hope he’ll thank us in twenty years time!
3) Sunday night reading… I thought M might enjoy reading Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
She was initially a little daunted by the small text size, but gamely gave it a go, and has been glued to her book at every available opportunity ever since. She read two chapters yesterday. So proud of her 🙂 .
