After writing last week’s blog post, M (after a few days of this awful bug that’s been going around) was thrown headlong into ballet rehearsals and then three performances over the weekend. She did extremely well, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
This is a picture that I took of the flower dance rehearsal. Spot the sausage!
Then it was straight back to our week-day activities following a half-term break. M brought home a beautiful bowl that she had made in pottery: they’re both still really enjoying the class.
For those who don’t know, this is the Into Film Festival fortnight, where schools and home educators get to see films for free. It’s an incredible resource, and I hope it continues – there are so many films to see! We’re a bit limited by the girls’ ages, obviously, but also by the amount of fear D shows towards films: the cinema can be quite a frightening experience for her. This year, I booked Mr Peabody and Sherman, and Turbo. We saw Mr Peabody and Sherman on Tuesday and M really enjoyed it but D spent most of the film feeling terrified!
M really needed some downtime and D and I have been under the weather so we had a much needed pyjama day on Wednesday: we had a lovely peaceful day of activities. The Lego has made a reappearance again, as has Minecraft, lots of drawing and letter writing to each other and Reading Eggs. The girls are also entering a competition to decorate a face mask which is being run by our local art shop.
D also asked to make a chocolate cake though it didn’t match up to expectations so I have been left to eat it all myself (shame).
And so endeth another blog post, with just a little bit of exciting news to tell you about – our bunnies are almost old enough for collection: we’ve got 2 more weeks to wait and then we can bring them home! We’re so excited… 😀
