This week is an interesting one for us as we have family over to stay - generally this means spending loads of time with them and less on our lessons. I don't feel too bad about it because the UK schools don't start until 4th Sept so 'taking it easy' for a week doesn't put us behind - or at least that's what I keep telling myself ;)
However limited my computer time is this week there was something I wanted to share. DD8 turned 9 on Monday and this year the girls made a pact to create each others birthday pressies - historically the older girls have made a few things for the younger ones but this year they decided they are all old enough to do it, here's what they made
DD6 made a paper mache pot, DD4 made a lavender filled pillow and the picture while DD2 mixed the dough for DD8's favourite biscuits :)
On a side note - I was wondering if I should change the girls names (as originally I used their ages to identify them) or if it would be too confusing when reading back posts if DD8 turned into DD9??
Any thoughts welcome.
See you next week xx
