Dinosaur activities – Day 3

Oh how much we enjoyed yesterday and getting so messy with our slime. I’ve found another messy play activity for the boys to do with dinosaurs. I’m saving it for tomorrow though, two messy days in a row sounds entertaining, but I’d never catch back up with the cleaning and tidying, so I’m saving itContinue reading “Dinosaur activities – Day 3”

Rainbow activities – Day 1

Oh how I’ve been looking forward to this theme. I just love rainbows. We’re a little behind the rest of the civilized world, especially the UK, on doing rainbow crafts though. They have become the symbol of support for the NHS, and every child in Great Britain seems to have already made one for theirContinue reading “Rainbow activities – Day 1”

Dinosaur activities – Day 2

Disclaimer for dinosaurs day 2. There was no formal “academics today”. Instead the boys made slime and just played an imaginary game with it and their dinosaur figurines. I think they learn just as much through play to be completely honest, but if you’re here for a link or a worksheet, today isn’t the dayContinue reading “Dinosaur activities – Day 2”

Dinosaur activities – Day 1

New week! Welcome pals! This week we took a poll between the boys for a theme. Teddy wanted rainbows, William wanted dinosaurs. I wanted rainbows, but I don’t really get a say. I told them they had to agree who would go first, and who would have to wait until next week. I honestly thoughtContinue reading “Dinosaur activities – Day 1”

When the clapping Stops

There is a moment before you enter the room when you pause. You review your PPE.  Do I have a surgical mask over the N95? A face shield over my glasses? Is the gown tied tight enough? You pause. Is this droplet or is it airborne? Does anyone know? Will the PPE work?  You pause. Continue reading “When the clapping Stops”

The Archers Recap June 1st – 4th

Well here we are again, batter, bruised, beguiled by the absolute pile of twaddle that was last weeks Archers. But let’s not harp on about that. Some things, much like Ruth’s lasagna skills, don’t need to be repeatedly mentioned. I’ve decided to perk myself up by making a fun game of guessing which characters willContinue reading “The Archers Recap June 1st – 4th”

Home is where the heart is: where to stay during your significant other’s deployment

When Arabella asked me to write a guest post for her blog regarding moving back “home” while my husband is deployed, I had SO many thoughts going through my head regarding what I should say, how much I should share, and how I *hopefully* wouldn’t ramble on and on as I tend to do. First,Continue reading “Home is where the heart is: where to stay during your significant other’s deployment”

Telling the time activities – Day 1

In a highly controversial move this week I am……drumroll……. not just cobbling together some insane Pinterest crafts on a theme I’ve pulled out of thin air. This week I am teaching an entirely new concept. Most of what we do at home is a review of skills the boys already semi know. I have notContinue reading “Telling the time activities – Day 1”
