So how was your week? We're half way through January, and after fighting for a slow start back, our momentum is back to its usual hectic pace. I'm definitely feeling that pull between wanted to go with the season and hibernate, but also go with that calendar tradition of starting new projects and getting back out into the world.
The certificates arrived for the Primary Maths Challenge the big two took part in, and they are both very proud of themselves. Orion has been taking mock 11+ exams also, and I think he's impressed himself with how much he knows.
The two Yoga Teacher Training babies finally got to meet, and when both families have four it makes for a fun, wild and crazy tribe!!
There has been plenty of independent art work taking place using the watercolour sets they received for Christmas. The book we're using for this term's art course is working out really well also. This is not a picture of my children swearing at each other by the way, they are practicing doing timed pencil drawing of hands as an exercise in observation.
The puppets have come back out, and Ayla is enjoying the shows as much as the puppets themselves.
A this little boy has won a super big brother award for creating an 'airplane' box for them, which she loves to play inside while he makes up all the fun adventures they go on.
I'm not sure she was completely convinced the trampoline was a fun thing!
And Tom celebrated another year around the sun with the customary chocolate cake.
