Our homeschooling this week

Woodwork and technology - building our Ikea furniture. We purchased the furniture Saturday, had it delivered Sunday. My dh is away and when he gets home, he is going to get a shock at our house makeover!

Give a girl (well, a homeschool mum) and some kids a spanner... Add some Joan Jett, Blondie and Fleetwood Mac while you build - and, hey, we have a new sitting room and dining room!

Thomas has been in hospital and, after work last night, the other kids and I visited - we took crisps, soft drink and chocolate for a post-operation party! Now, where were the Margaritas and G&T's - thats right, at home!
And Anthony has been having geoboard fun. Very mathematical.

Your makeover is great!

So sorry to hear about Thomas! Hope he's okay - we'll keep him in our prayers!

Looks like a good week! Nothing like working together and developing those real living skills!

The pix at the hospital is so funny... it looks like the Cheezels are attached to the drip... now that would be great!!!! hope Thomas gets well soon.

Maria, thanx for thoughts for Thomas - he is great, he had to have the metal pin removed from his arm, after his bike accident last year....

Fr - the Cheezels drip is why Thomas is so happy now! lol!

Leonie -- I SOOOO want to meet you in person, you just crack me up with your posts. Spanner & IKEA, indeed!

And why weren't the margaritas and G&Ts at the hospital?????

Sounds like a wonderful, real learning week. Thanks for sharing with us all.

It'd be fun to meet, wouldn't it? Have a cup of tea or two ( or another beverage? lol!).
