The peace is shattered

21 Jun

The girls are back from their weekend with B, visiting his family.  L and I have enjoyed the peace very much!  After their initial gushing, telling me all they had been up to, E came up and gave me a cuddle and said she’d loved being in her own home.  H, after giving L a bear hug, disappeared for ages into the playroom, reacquainting herself with all her toys.

They got home after 7pm, but E informed me she’d been stuck in a car ALL day, and needed to do something.   She started by pulling up our Potato Council potatoes.  We washed, dried and weighed them – I must remember to submit our results now!

She also picked some lettuce, and weighed that too!  She then moved onto painting the inside of an old ice cream tub…

Later on E was playing with her blackboard, she wanted to make a list of things she wanted to learn about – gasp!!!  I helped her spell:  Tudors, Hastings (battle of!), Charles I + II, and medsn (E’s own spelling, as she wants to know about medicine used during wars apparently… I don’t even  know where to start on that one!).  The blackboard writing then turned into a game of Hangman.  She came up with a couple of good words on her own, then she did one which was just a collection of letters!  She got frustrated and said she didn’t know any words.  I pointed out that she knew quite a few.  She had a few more goes with her name, H’s name, and daddy.  She did really well playing along with my words, and working out how to say them out loud at the end.

    Thats really cool. I think trying to make more of the car journey would be good, though Im not sure what, maybe some good games, or better planning of good stops instead of service stations.

      I have suggested that before! Its hard to know what is a short trip from the motorway sometimes in places you don’t know well. Ideas needed!!
