We did laugh and say this was a very thin, tall Roman pacing out his mile! Then Hettie wanted to finish building a Knex car she had started and do some colouring (Scooby Doo, not very Waldorf!) I think we were just enjoying the quiet. We carried on reading On The Banks of Plum Creek which seems to be taking forever to finish, after lunch.
I spent the spare hours working on a curriculum for Isobel. I'm trying to mix Waldorf with worksheets and a Sonlight approach. I know sounds mad but it is coming together. I've ordered some readers and read alouds from Amazon and am going to get a few bits from Sonlight. I'm thinking that Hettie liked lots of worksheets when she first was home ed and it gradually wore off and it could go either way with Issy, so I don't want to spend lots of money until I'm pretty sure of how she is. Books don't count by the way when it comes to spending, you can never have too many books!
I took a leaf out of L's book and tried to cut down on internet hours today and even got some ironing done! Good plan to self limit internet time.
The girls had their Brownie fete tonight, a very small affair, but they had all worked hard to get stalls sorted out. I did buy about 8 books for 10p each, all on my read aloud list!
Oh and yesterday I spent cleaning through again post party and wiping lots of smears of chocolate off door frames etc and realising its not a good idea to leave a chocolate fountain 'til the morning to clean 'cos the chocolate is rock solid!!!
