The boys have worked together to make me a lovely birthday card this year - designed as a patchwork card with a central applique flower - just up my street, as readers of my sewing blog will know! Gman also wrote this lovely poem inside:
Happy 34th birthday mum
hope you have a lot of fun
you might want to sew all day
or in the bath you'd like to stay
Either way, be assured
With me and Rafe you won't get bored
Otherwise, we have been easing gently back into our weekday home ed routine, after a Christmas of Lego, Lego and more Lego! The boys are particularly taken with a new online programme we have subscribed to, called Mathletics. As the name suggests,it is a maths website, with some fun added features whereby you can earn credits to "buy" things for your avatar. Gman has been keenly undertaking all sorts of maths activities in order to earn enough credits for a jester's hat, and Waif is saving up for an animated space background for his character. I am sure the novelty will wear off eventually, but maybe then they will go back to playing with Education City again...
