Another month with a fair bit of illness in our house. I'm sick and tired of it (see what I did there?). I'm really hoping that warmer weather and more vitamin D will improve our chances. This month saw lots of reading, lots of playing, lots of days spent in pyjamas (or "jothes" as Simon calls them... jammies + clothes = jothes), lots of learning and schooling (and some tears shed), and yet more snow.
We also celebrated Valentine's Day with a few friends. In our case, a "few" was 25 kids and 6 moms. I love throwing parties and making these days special for the kids. There are so many benefits to homeschooling, but there are also some fun parts of school that I don't want them to miss out on. I hope their childhood is full of memories of happy times like these.
01.29.2014 - Reading. Not all four kids, but 3 kids + 2 kittens. Good enough.
01.30.2014 - Simon and Andrew consented to play Little People with Eloise. She was one happy little girl.
02.02.2014 - Playing outside. An elusive smile from the 10 year old; swings and big jumps for the others.
02.07.2014 - Watching the Olympic opening ceremonies.
02.13.2014 - From our Valentine's Day party. 4 kids + 2 kittens. Win.
02.22.2014 - Saturday morning screen time. The kids get an hour on the weekends (and then spend the rest of their time begging/scheming/working for more). Kittens are both present. Peter was working. The pile of laundry to be folded is representative of me. ;)
There are 10 lovely ladies participating in the circle, the next one is Ruthie from Fairy Wings and Dinosaurs, with her FIVE have a little tea party. Wonder if I can convince the boys to have tea with Eloise this afternoon...?
