snippets from this week….
monday we tried the robin hood book, but the language was much too complicated for the children, so we have postponed that. but bee is suddenly wanting to read fairy stories. previously he hasn’t liked them because the giants, bad fairies etc were too scary but he is coping with the gentler ones now.
tuesday we socialised. lunch at p’s with f and t, and then we passed d,j and t on the way home so they came to play.
wednesday matt took the day off and we went to the boughton estate open day. plastering and brick laying, sheep, tractors, cutting down a 100 year old beech, hunting dogs, falconry…..then on to colourstrings and home.
today lots of books arrived in the post. matt read the galileo (peter sis ) and started the anno’s math games with them. also “there goes the neighbourhood”, a book about controversial architecture eg eiffel tower. and we read some aeroplane bits. lots of playing, dot-to-dots.
