.... went quickly!
- the first week was spent blatantly ignoring the fact it was a New Year. I wanted to slow down this year and not over commit, either creatively, mentally or on the Home Education front.
|Whoops - this was spotted on 04 January!|
- the fourth week was feeling like we had a rhythm to our days, including creating, home ed and home cooking aswell as our activities. It also contained what would have been my Dad's birthday. It's been just over 2 years since he died and whilst the old saying that time heals is true it still takes a lots of time and there's still a wound no matter how long has passed.
Creatively it involved a workshop with Gillian Travis (to be blogged about soon!), the start of three Bees I am involved in, handmade birthday presents - made by me and my daughters, the start of the Farm Girl Vintage blocks, Project Linus quilts and organisation and lots of planning .....
Home Ed wise it contained Oceania, illuminated letters, hibernation, healthy eating, the Periodic Table and what elements a body needs, ice skating lessons for the girls and a return to ice skating for me - after a break of over 30 years!, stop animation workshops, lots of art and cooking and 1905-7!!!
I have read a mixture of books, adult, children's and teen, recommendations from my daughter and my mum and random ones from the library shelf!
