Well it's been a couple of weeks since I last blogged, this is partly because I've been a bit lazy and partly because we haven't been up to a great deal and then also because we had a brief stay in hospital due to Oscar having concussion. Anyway, here is a little of what we have been up to over the last couple of weeks.
We made gingerbread angels and decorated them with Christmas sprinkles.
At the home Ed Group it was book week and the children had all read Treasure Island so they had a talk about the book then joined in various activities including making pirate biscuits.
For some reason Oscar, Jack and Sam decided that sticking biscuit dough to their noses would be fun.
Then it was time for a play outside even though it was freezing cold.
Roger and I were very proud when we went to watch Oscar perform in the St. Johns Ambulance Christmas show. Oscar was playing young Mozart and he did brilliantly!
We had a trip to the Theatre to see Treasure Island with our home ed group, Oscar thoroughly enjoyed himself sitting with his friends and giggling.
More cooking, this time it was mince swirls.
Then there was a bowling party, Oscar had a great time but then discovered that bowling balls and heads aren't a great mix and he ended up spending the night in hospital with concussion.
Once we were home from hospital Oscar was on strict instructions to take it easy so we spent most of last week watching Christmas TV and films and making paper chains.
Lots and lots of paper chains.
Oscar did decide he was up to a visit to see Father Christmas though so that's where we went on Friday.
Oscar was lucky enough to receive this lovely book as an early gift from Santa and we have read it over and over again all weekend.
Fortunately Oscar seems to be ok now but being so close to Christmas I will be running round like a headless chicken this week while Oscar gets to do pretty much whatever he wants. Today that included spending the afternoon at his friend's house followed by his taekwondo class.
Tomorrow we will be off home the home ed group Christmas party.
