Baking has featured quite a bit. My 9 year old particularly enjoys making bread, and his cinnamon loaf went down well. My 11 year old has baked so much I can't keep up, but his birthday cakes have been particularly impressive this year.

My youngest is keen to keep up as much as possible, and made some delicious mini sponge cakes just a few days ago.

We've all been enjoying Bake Off again this year; my 11 year old has an even longer list of bakes he wants to attempt now!
My daughter has also recently started sewing, after we were given a small sewing machine by a friend from church. She's made little bags, a cushion for her brother's birthday, and a skirt for herself (she chose the material herself!).

As ever, running, and especially parkrun is popular. Both my 7 and 9 year olds have reached their milestone 50 runs over the last few weeks. They are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their parkrun 50 milestone t-shirts.

We have also, of course, been working pretty hard at our day-to-day studies. There's a lot to fit in, but overall we seem to manage to do most of what I plan most of the time - which is pretty good.
