Homeschool Stuff

The kids have been having a lot of fun learning a whole assortment of things during homeschool.
One day they decided to make a pyramid with their duplo. They just had a whole lot of fun working together on this one... which is nice as sometimes lego can cause more trouble than fun.

Last week we went to an art class where the kids learnt to draw sports people. It was very good. The pictures the kids drew were also pretty good, but the boys were starting to tire towards the end, but Anna-Maria was in her element. She absolutely loved it. I picked up a few art books from a recent garage sale, one of Renoir's, Van Gogh's and Rembrant's paintings. Anna-Maria looked through the Van Gogh book, got paper and pencils and started copying his pictures of irises and roses. She just loved it.

She really loved art. There is not a day goes by without her (and Ella) drawing a large amount of pictures. So one of projects this term will be studying the impressionists and doings lots of art and painting. We have nearly got our learning cupboard sorted out so that our project work will be a lot easier.

Ella-Rose entertains herself and has already claimed the title of Monkey-Ella, but here is the evidence to prove she really is a monkey.

She also likes to be very involved in what Lily is doing.

Today I was asking Ella everybody's names. When she got to me, She knew I was mummy, but I told her my name was also Deborah, 'Mummy Deborah'. I pointed to her dad and asked who's that? She was obviously trying to think of his other name, grinned and said 'Daddy Boy!'
