A quiet week

We haven't been up to much over the last week because Oscar hasn't been very well. But we did finish reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we made our own Chocolate Factory.

Oscar was given this for his Birthday and we had to push out all the pieces and follow the instructions to make this. We think it's brilliant and are rather proud of ourselves. I am going to have to ask my friend where she got it from to see if there are other similar things we can make.

We spent alot of time on the sofa watching films including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Oscar decided the book is better than the film.

We turned some daffodils blue.
we tried this a few weeks ago and for some reason it didn't work but these turned out ok.

We made it to our homeschool group on Wednesday where Oscar made an Easter basket and some Easter decorations and enjoyed an egg and spoon race.

Oscar had a friend round for tea one evening and they spent ages playing with Oscar's crane and his Thomas trains. And of course on Sunday we had an Easter egg hunt and Oscar spent the rest of the day setting up egg hunts for his dad and I.

Oscar is feeling alot better now so hopefully this week will be more active and we are both looking forward to my Aunt and cousin visiting a few days.

  2. Hi Adriana,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and making comment. I hope you continue to enjoy reading about our journey and I am sure you are going to love home educating your son.

    When we started home ed I hadn't appreciated just how much I would I personally would gain from being able to watch my son grow and learn every day. And the added bonus is that I too am growing and learning.
