I haven't been blogging recently because we've been having some adaptions made to our house. (I will blog about this at a later date when I've tidied up!)
Its been a strange time, going from a lot of snow, all the children being ill over Christmas to suddenly having to be out all day whilst the builders got on with what they had to do. We've gone into survival mode I think. The boys found it extremely difficult to go to places that were not so familiar and were on the whole happier doing walks and being in the car listening to music so that's what we've been doing - long drives, long walks, lots of picnics. I for one do not want to see a peanut butter sandwich or a takeaway coffee ever again! It feels like we have lost a whole month. Its been hard to put any learning activities in place and after the first week we actually made a decision that it would be detrimental to do so. We've worked so hard at putting routines in place for activities at home that it felt like all of that would be undermined if we started to change things. So we've concentrated on the walking.....
Our theme for the next month or so is 'Transport' so we've visited all the museums in the area relating to that too.
Fleet Air Arm Museum
The Helicopter Museum
Haynes Motor Museum
The work has been worth the hassle and was much needed and although we are absolutely exhausted I think we are quite excited about what the adaptions mean for the future. Today though, I'm having a day off!
