Good afternoon lovely people....
It's been a lovely morning here.... G has had a BIG long sleep which is unlike my little robot of a 2 year old! This meant after a bit of polishing (yes really) J and I had time to get out the things he likes playing with but usually end in arguments and frustrations as 2 year olds tend to have different ideas to almost 5 year olds to how to play nice.
We built the circus.... which incidently had a giraffe who couldn't get in the door.... oops! J was the chief animal trainer and he took his job slightly too seriously... even for him :)
The Circus set has a gift for Christmas and was quite a few pennies... I remember thinking, I hope he "gets it" and oh but he does, such a warm fuzzy feeling to hear him and watch him using that amazing growing imagination,
When G decided it was time to join us we got out his birthday crayons and I printed off some colouring sheets from a fantastic website! wee folk art where there are free patterns, tutorials and much more!
Well it's the last week of having J at home full time... he is almost 5 and on Monday he will be doing his first half day of kindergarten.
I have many mixed feelings... I so wanted to home educate him but I have found it more of a challenge than I expected, I love it and hate it all at the same time and as I am not the most social of people I have found it difficult to get out as much as I think J needs.
So J is going to be starting at a Steiner school on Monday... 5 half days a week until the summer as a trial run to see how we get on. If he likes it, and it suits him he will go back in September, probably in kindergarten again as he is a summer baby.
I almost feel like I am mourning for what may have been this week, I feel emotional although I know we can change our minds and still home educate I do think J will adore his new school.
who knows where the rest of today will go... sky is looking heavy with rain...
may have a browse of the blogs I love so much for inspiration and try something new this afternoon.
Hope you all are having a fantastic day...
