Haikus away !
What with the evenings drawing in so early Homeschool work can be done when its dark outside, which sparked a conversation about people who live in the dark , whether they have no electricity , and if so how they make light or indeed if they are blind...Daisy`s "book of the week" is "Elmos Pets" , its on her little desk and she sits there everyday pretending to read ,while big sister Aideen works at her desk...cute ! Also Aideen is practicing writing Haikus this week as she wants to enter the International childrens haiku poetry competition ,this year the theme is "school" ,she hasnt decided on her entry yet but we`ll post the finished poem! And Aideen is too ,making her Christmas gifts , as a family we have a plan every year to make home made gifts for each other ,and look at what Aideen is doing for Daisy , she printed a page from a vintage coloring book and is embroidering it to put in a frame ,and Dad is getting a knitted scarf ! Thanks to aunty Nora by the way for the Viking poster towards the project ! Aideen is spending a little time each day colouring a bit in to "relax" after a fun days Homeschool...and what do you think of Daisy`s cress???? OMG most of the seeds ended up on the floor , but some survived and we had them in tonights salad , they were lovley Daisy well done :0)
