Francesca was happy to sew and Sebastian was busy with his car.
We stuck our pressed leaves into the book and wrote the name of the tree as the title of each page. We cut the bark rubbings down to a manageable size and stuck them alongside. Francesca made a title page and a contents page. It's not finished but at least Francesca knows what she's doing with it and we can carry on with it another day.
To be honest, we're all tired and having a tough day. I'm grumpy and the children are being silly. I did stay up too late last night working on an article, so I know that didn't help.
The house is a mess and everything's feeling a bit disorganised. There's so much to do and not enough time.
This would be the case today regardless of whether I called it 'school' - I'd still be occupying the children all day. However, the decision to home educate would commit me to all day every day. I need a better routine.
Plans to do thank you letters and a request to do maths this afternoon.
