The Homeschool Mother's Journal - 18
In my life this week:
Moving and unpacking my mum. Finally finished and it's great to have her all settled into her new place. I'm exhausted though and I don't want to move again any time real soon!
I had a job interview for a casual Discovery Ranger position with the Office of Environment and Heritage (National Parks and Wildlife Service). I think it went well and I would really enjoy this type of work. I hope I haven't jinxed myself by putting it in writing. Will keep you posted!
Kept running - finished Week 2 of Ease into 10K program.
Helped DH do stuff for the business. Not exciting, but had to be done.
In our homeschool this week:
Schoolwork took a backseat to real life this week. Wombat Girl came down with a nasty cold, which has laid her a bit low. Video Boy enjoyed his parent's being busy by playing....you guessed it, a few video games!
But in the spirit of life learning, natural learning and unschooling they have also:
- read a new bunch of Horrible History books
- watched episodes of Catalyst
- cleaned their rooms
- played Bananagrams (big thanks to Jane for sending those!!)
- developed climbing skills at the playground at Huskisson
It is lovely to see the kids live and learn together. I guess we are lucky they get on so well.
Nice stodgy winter fare - rogan josh meatballs and rice, cauliflower and potato soup, beef stroganoff.
A photo to share:
We went up to Huskisson for the afternoon as DH had a job to do there. Kids played on the playground and we had a late lunch on the wharf - we were starving! Chicken and chips never tasted so good!
