A recap for the month September
Apart from the 'normal' things, like learning all the time, reading, playing, computer, play station, eating, visiting friends, having friends over, we also......
went to Torquay Museum this month. We will revisit this museum next week, hopefully I'll think of taking picures :)
had a Not Back to School Picnic at one of our favorite spots nearby: Elberry Cove
went to Haytor, several times. It's becoming the boys' favorite place to go to. Adam would like to camp there with friends, he told me.
went to Haldon Forest as a family. A really nice place to go for a walk or take your bike. We'll be there this week again, hopefully (again) with pictures!
went to Dartington Hall Gardens in Totnes with our local Home Ed group
went to the Rainbow Fun House; the boys' favorite indoor play area.
went to the cinema to see Cars 2.
went bowling with friends
went to Goodrington Beach to play with friends
went to Kingsbridge, a place I put on my 'to do' list...
went to Decoy Park with our local Home Ed group once and once on our own.
Played with/learned from the several packets of Usborne fact cards that we recently bought. I really recommend these cards!
had a Home Meet here. Something we all love!
went to Powderham Castle, just to walk in the gardens and see the deer.
saw Boaz earning his first certificate/badge. He's only had a couple of swimming lessons, but the teacher is great!!
had a visit from Tjerk, Job's brother. Job and the boys took him to Woodlands and to Haytor. Sadly, Job didn't take pictures.
(I) had a few coffee out moments this month ;) and a Mom's Night Out!
also (well, I did) started a new lego project! The boys have lots of lego, have always built the kits/ships they got. But gradually the ships were taken apart. What was left, was boxes and boxes of parts. That's ok, the boys like using their fantasy and building their own ships.
To see what's still complete, or needs extra parts, I decided to fix and/or rebuild everything, with a little help from the boys, who are excited to play with the 'original' kits again.
I first spent a couple of days sorting all the bricks, and after that, had to find the specific bricks for the ships I wanted to build. It took me longer than I thought, but it's really satisfying! Not even near having finished the 'project', but certainly progressing ;)
