Monday. The various activities haven’t started back yet but I thought it would be good for us to get back to some usual practices, even if normal might be a little much to aspire to. So along with his chores, Small did mathletics and writing and planning his project on the history of telecommunications, while Smallest played on Mat Sat (her name for the Bob Books App), did some drawing and played on reading eggs for a while.
Big managed some maths, some guitar and some reading and also knocked off cooking tea, while Tigerboy majored in creating chaos and looking cute.
I pottered, did housework, picked up Tigerboy’s new wooden blocks three times, explored Google+ some more, dealt with some emails, managed my third run of the year and finished my first book. It was Scent of Magic and I’ll review it properly tomorrow. I’ve also lined up two more competitions for the weekly Read52 post so hopefully that will become something to look forward to 🙂
I’ve also managed to keep up with my plan to spend more quality time with the younger children. And I’ve wrapped reading aloud into it. I’m reading a chapter of Paddington at bedtime to both of them. I was quite surprised that Smallest listens so well, it takes nearly 20 minutes to read a chapter and there are very few pictures. But she seems to be enjoying it, so I guess she’s ready.
How did your Monday go?
