Yesterday as I had a hospital appointment mid morning I didn’t bother with the usual lessons. I heard Roni and Avila read and then it was off to the hospital. That went well. Got a pass on my kidney’s and heart. The hypertension has dropped from stage 2 to borderline but this could be because I am on meds and out of flare so I’m to stop some of the meds and go back for further tests in 2 months. Got the next appointment through this morning!
One of the things I still find surprising about the way HE works in our family is the way the children get on with learning even when I am not organising it. They have formed the habit of learning, and anyway, they enjoy it. So, although the usual lessons were shelved, they got books and read to one another and then Ronan got Josh’s old Open Uni molecule making set and starting working out what chemicals might do what. This culminated in us looking up what air is made of and he made air. We had to make a couple of molecules out of paper, but it worked fine. He really loves the idea of making molecule modules. I’ll have to invest in some other sets for him later I think.
Meanwhile it was their dad’s birthday, so after doing some of her Open Uni work that must be handed in soon, Iona made a birthday cake.
We had some reading time together, where I read to them and then they played before their dad got home from work for his birthday tea.
A good day.
H/T BWYA for telling me how to make a slideshow 🙂
