Taking part in the Weekly Wrap-Up Blog Hop from Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers this week!
It's been the last week of the Easter School Holidays here so we haven't been doing much school work, although every day is full of education via life anyway!
I have been in a bit of a flat headspace and wrote this blog post about being flat and having time out for us mothers.
I decided to try and deal with my overflowing bookshelves and am on a mission to find a good cataloguing program to use. So all those great bargain finds don't get left on the shelf and forgotten when we are covering topics. Which led to this blog post on having too much stuff LOL.
My son has been spending his days playing with all the things he got recently for his birthday and that's meant Skylanders marathons, Lego days and to my delight .... reading!!!! The book series of choice at the moment is "Time Hunters" (look out for a future review of those!). Oh and movies, lots of movies and DVD's.
This weekend I will be getting some child free time as father and son are heading to an Army Base "Fly-in" Day/weekend. Will be great preparation and history lesson for our upcoming ANZAC Day here in Australia. Plus the boys are excited to see a Catalina up close!
Speaking of ANZAC Day (25th April) we have been collecting our commemorative coins every day, we've been and bought official ANZAC medallions with sand from Gallipoli, the Two-Up game (ready for Grandad) and done a lot of reading ready for the day (see blog post). While it is always a very important day, being the centenary of Gallipoli is very significant this year.
So not a super eventful week for us, a little deep and meaningful from me with my posts, lots of planning and lots to do in the coming weeks!
