Nice day today...

We all went to a friends today for lunch. All the kids played together and had a great time, luckily enough it was warm Spring weather and they got to play in the garden. They all ate lunch watching a DVD about tigers which meant mum's got to chat. So it was a nice leisurely day. I took the Galore Park books and everyone agreed they look good and were reasonably priced. Hettie's gone off to fencing and Issy is playing with her Polly Pockets. She's particularly looking for a miniscule yellow shoe, which I think has possibly been hoovered!

So not many chores done today, and I've run out of washing powder, so shops early tomorrow. I figure we'll do extra, and early, tomorrow to catch up.

I'm beginning to peruse Grade 4 Waldorf for Hettie and trying to sort it out in my head. I think she's going to really enjoy it though, not as practical as this year but a bit more of a mix. I'd like to keep the local geography block for this time next year so we can get out and about.

I'm also pondering on a summer project for them both to do this year. They're both still in 'it's school holiday' mode, but will end up 'bored' if we don't do something. Hopefully we will have our veg growing and garden to tend for some of the time at least. If we can get onto the grass we can sit about and read some good books as well, which is just what hot summer days are for!

OOhh, I long for hot summer days, freshly cut grass and good books!!
That's going to be my last thought before I fall asleep tonight.

We'll be doing Waldorf 4th grade next year also so I look forward to reading about your experiences. I'm excited about doing the local history/geography unit- that should be so much fun.
