What a busy week we’ve had.
It’s weeks like these that I’m glad I am a stay at home Mum.
Every day after school this week, Woo’s school has had what they call ‘Superstars Week’. The teachers, with some parent volunteers, run some after school events for the children – which include things like holding a bowl of water on your head, rolling a marble onto a target on the floor to try and get the highest score and throwing beanbags into buckets, amongst others.
Boo and Lou’s school have invited the parents to a RRR (Rights, Respect and Responsibilities) workshop. So firstly I went along to Lou’s classroom and we did some problem solving. We had to think of ideas for what a chick needed to be healthy, and we did some junk modelling together to build a house for the chick. It was lovely to be able to spend some time in her classroom with her. Then I did the same in Boo’s classroom. That’s the fun of having twins in different classes. You get to do everything twice!
Then I went to Woo’s assembly, which I thoroughly enjoyed. He remembered his lines perfectly, in spite of the fact that he has receptive language disorder. I was really proud of him.
Then I went to an ‘Authors Tea Party’ at the twins’ school. They have been writing their own stories and wanted to share it with the parents.
Once the weekend arrived, we took the children to an event called ‘Overlord’. It is a display of lots of old military vehicles and stalls with memorabilia. My husband knows someone through his work that owns some vehicles and he very kindly allowed my husband to drive his 6.2 litre V8 Chevy around the field. The children really loved this and were very excited that we could all sit across the front seat! Quite an experience, especially for Woo who also really loved the re-enactment of the Germans getting captured by the British. Lots of explosions and gunfire. Just what little boys love!
So with all that, and trying to keep the house in some sort of order, I’m quite glad I don’t have a ‘job’ to go to as well! I’m not entirely sure where I would fit it in!Google+
