And I think they may have been in our garden. Because despite dh cleaning out our pond and fishing (no pun intended) about Holly the fish is gone - or she was until this afternoon when she's made a sudden and unexpected reappearance. Hettie thinks it was aliens and Issy thinks she's been on holiday! But in any case it has us puzzled because there is just no-where she could have hidden, the pond is as clear as clear. So it will no doubt remain one of lifes little mysteries.
Yesterday Issy was enrolled into her Brownie pack. She said her Brownie law and promise very beautifully, and very seriously. I was really proud of her.
Back to today - well home ed was a bit of a write off. But we did manage some maths, although today handwriting was a no go. So Hettie watched a couple of Tv programmes and then did some oil pastel art after lunch, and we read some more of the Railway Children. She has been a little under the weather and has a rash on her back which I think (and hope) is just a heat rash. So if it's no better tomorrow we'll have to visit the doctor.
I spent last night and today sorting out the huge box of Sonlight curriculum, which started as good fun (looking at all the lovely books) and then a bit of work (while I put it together and started reading it all). However I think I've got the hang of it now, well sort of. Once we get going I'm sure it will be great.
