A week into the whole home-ed thing, and Oren’s reading and writing is coming on in leaps and bounds. They both seem to be a lot easier to get on with, too.
We all went ice-skating last friday, in Streatham. Elsie was brilliant. Ice-skating is a pretty difficult thing to get the hang of, and where, usually, you would expect Elsie to give up quite quickly, she really kept at it and by the end was happily pushing herself all the way around the rink with no help at all. The other kids there were a great help, holding her hands and giving her encouragement.
They’re off to the Natural History Museum today, to search for dinosaurs. Can’t wait till my work comes to an end so that I can join in!
