Precious Moments

The big news this week……

….Thomas is back!!  (try to ignore the tatty and dirty jumper of L and focus on her beautiful smile instead 🙂  It’s her costume for a drama she is acting in.  Although why it is so filthy is beyond me….)

Thomas’ girls are all over the moon he is back, and they haven’t stopped talking at him all morning.  I think he’s missing the peace and quiet of Northern Ireland 🙂

I have no other photos for this week.  The older girls have been helping out with the drama for our church’s holiday club, whilst the younger two have been attending.  Thomas has been away all week so I have literally had the house all to myself for three hours each day.  I’ve been incredibly busy planning for next term, writing schedules and goals.  I still have a bit more to do today, but I should be finished by tonight (imagine me running around maniacally, squealing in delight).

I have also been putting together a plan for the next month based on Around the World in 80 days.  We will be doing fun school for most of August and I have so many ideas to keep the children busy and away from their screens 🙂

This week on the blog, I have posted about using paper mache maps to learn significant historical and geographical facts:

I wrote about why I named my blog angelicscalliwags:

On Wednesday I posted a review on a very inexpensive but enormously fun app by Star Toaster:

Orphs of the Woodlands at Tanglegate Review

On Thursday I wrote about an art study we did on Venezuelan artist Santiago Pol:

    Wow. 3 hours a day to yourself? That’s awesome.

  6. Somehow I had read this and not commented……

    That is a wonderful picture of all your kids, mussed up faces and clothes included (that’s what gives it character, and makes it extra special).
