So it's a long weekend here in Victoria, has anyone got any special plans? Do you school on the public holiday?
These last few weeks we have been just covering the basics as we have been spring cleaning through our home, doing all the fun stuff like scrubbing walls, skirting boards and packing away as much of our things as we can.
Our B&B/house is now on the market!
There is a season for everything. We know it is time to sell this investment and move on.
When situations arise in your family that demand your time and attention do you stop schooling all together or do you continue a few things?
I have found it rather difficult to just set aside my children's education, to set my attention on something else. But we are doing it and we will just have to have catch up days.
Both of my children are still reading there books and doing there writing, maths, Spanish & typing as they can do these subjects mostly on there own, so really frees me. We are not doing any of our read aloud books which drives me crazy if I think about it, but we'll get back into it real soon.
I'm really just typing anything I can think about to get my mind off the pain I have from PMS, it's not good.
Anyway, we finished (as our family read-aloud) C.S Lewis' first book to his series 'The Magicians Nephew' last week, I read the last 3 chapters in one sitting and I was extremely excited to have learnt where the wardrobe from 'The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe' came into it. So was my husband actually!!!
I'm sitting here trying to decide if I should start the Anne of Green Gables books, which is next on my list of books to read or do some more of my fitness reading which is about Anatomy and Physiology at the moment, and I am loving what I am learning about the body.
What do you think?
I'm also trying to decide which Shakespeare play I should read first to the children.
I'd really appreciate your opinion!
