Tudor England , Florida and paint !

A HUGE "thankyou" to our wonderful friend Helen in Leeds who sent a barrowload of information on Leeds castle and the Tudors...lots of "ohhing" and "ahhing" went on ! This is gonna be one great project me thinks !

Aideen has nearly completed her project on the state of Florida in the USA

Daisy is STILL painting :0) Today the order was for "orange paint and glitter please mammy"

Aideens Frida project !

Some of the wonderful cards Aideen and Daisy recieved from their Homeschoolers Valentine swap ! Its a great idea and every year you get cards from different people all over the world, also this year Pebs (who organises this massive undertaking) asked everone to add information about where they live , so it became teh basis for a geography lesson/s too !

Chinese New Year

Is it just us or is the time simply flying by ??? This week Aideens been working hard on studying about the Chinese New Year , which happens to fall on the same day as St. Valentines Day ! And shes been making cards to send to her homeschool friends across the world , its always a fun time as she recieves many cards in return! Spring is really in the air now we`ve planted some new herbs and a couple of Spring primroses are appearing already ! Also we`ve planted Rocket lettuce , so hopefully that will do well as its one of our favourite lettuces! The girls Aunty Nellie came for a visit this week and brought a VERY special gift...the very first laid egg from her hens !!! Its still has straw on it ! And the girls call it their "tiny egg"...its going to be boiled tonight ,and we`re all guessing theres about a spoon full of egg in it :0) Hopefully by next Spring our own chickens will be installed !
And bargain of the week has to be our new magnifying glass, a steal at €1.50 in the local discount store ! And the girls are`nt the only ones working...as I`m busy getting my essays written the family chore chart has come in very handy this week ! Even Daisy is "signing" her name on it when she helps empty the dishwasher ! Well , till next week...bye from us all here at Scoil Dai!
