Easter Holidays

We've been back to work for two days already. We're planning to take two weeks off in June, so we're back to the books a bit earlier than usual.

Nonetheless, it was good to have a break, although the two older boys managed to be ill for quite a bit of the time!

We have been doing activities based on Africa at our home education group last term, so we have made lapbooks to keep a record of some of the activities we did.

We have managed a couple of trips out, including a trip to the British Museum with some friends, and a trip to race ducks (not real ducks!) with another family.

The children enjoyed our Easter activities, especially making our Easter cake this year.

I always welcome a break, and had fun making hot cross buns. I usually have help, but children being unwell meant I made them myself this year.

I have been trying to learn to crochet (using YouTube), and have begun a blanket. Hopefully I will be able to carry on now that term has begun; it turns out that crochet can be combined quite well with listening to a child read.

By the end of the week, my two boys were much better, and went to their archaeology club, and returned home with some impressive shields!

It didn't work out as I planned - we missed some walks and I had to stay at home with a sick child during our Good Friday service; however, we still had a good break and are feeling refreshed as we get back to work again.
