Today was just one of those really satisfying home school days where it felt SO good to be home and loving learning with my brood.
The day started early with the arrival of the piano teacher. Miss P is one of the most amazing elderly ladies I have ever met. She has a heart of gold and all though she never married or had children, she has such an incredible way with them. Her life's work has been (and still is) with children in hospitals, children's homes, Sunday school and schools. She currently takes care of her "sweetie pie", as she calls him, who is her deceased sisters grandchild of 6. She has taken care of him since he was 3 months old.
Miss P is like a breath of fresh air and is full of laughter and joy. I think she will be really good for the children as she is firm, but kind and loving in her manner.
She lives a stones throw away from us and is happy to come here to teach the younger two piano. They thoroughly enjoyed their lessons today and have been practising on and off throughout the rest of the day.
In our Zoology we are discovering sharks together and the children have been putting a lot of effort into their note booking pages.
After a full mornings work, we had a delicious lunch ..... pancakes made by J..... filled with left over dinner from last night.
I had planned to take the children to the gym for a swim this afternoon but the sun was out and I felt like being outdoors.....
I called my dear friend and she was up to an afternoon nature study too! I will post separately on our afternoon under the big blue sky.
This evening we caught up on some reading and hubby helped J with some Accounting. I was also grateful for his help in marking some of J's work. J did very well in his most recent Physical Science test, scoring 94%.
Dinner was hake and peppers (from the garden) done in my homemade pesto.
A full and satisfying day!
