The Talbots in Lockdown
Week 13 – Monday 15th June
It’s the last Lockdown blog! I can hear you all shout for joy! 😉 (I know who you are! ) Quinn is back at school next week. So… it’ll just be me and the boys at home.
Its been a quiet, can’t be bothered week. We chose what and when we did it….so not a lot happened a lot of the time!
The kids enjoyed a bit of art and crafty bits this week. Not much math homework happened (I’d had enough of edges, faces and vertices or 3D shapes by Tuesday) and I wanted to have a fun time for Quinn before next week. They had fun doing the online art class with Rob. You basically just follow along with him and have a go at drawing. Drawing is something I like but the kids claim they are ‘bad drawers’. So they were super chuffed with their final pieces of a polar bear. There was a scary moment when the paws looked like sagging boobs, but they won it round when they added the nipples, sorry, claws!!
Also this week…
Made Father Day monsters,
Max climbed out of his walker,
Made more Nutella Swirls,
Quinn had a Summer themed week set by school,
Made a colour wheel in the garden,
Ruby had a hair cut,
Quinn did a Miranda the Mermaid workshop online,
The kids attacked my make-up. Who knew I had so much black eye shadow? Unless that’s the colour it makes all mixed together!?!?
Dan gave Ellis had a long over due hair cut,
Celebrated Dan’s first Father’s Day with 3 kids,
Painted some more kitchen cupboards,
Quinn had a phase 3 phonics spelling test,
Ellis was on bathroom cleaning duty again,
Quinn had a Cheerio lip ring,
The kids spent their Easter money on more plastic, cuddly toy, dinosaur digging and making things / stuff and had a treasure hunt around the house to find them,
Ellis tried sushi although he really meant a slushee drink! He had never been so keen to clean his teeth!
And the mermaid ‘wanna be’ continues… honestly it’s exhausting! Quinn has seen a mermaid scale creation to look like you have a fin under your skin, toys, craft, fin fun tails for swimming (in all the closed swimming pools!), mermaid hair…. it never ends!
So there we go. It been a challenging 13 weeks with lots of tears and laughter from all of us. But we made it!
Lots of fun times have been had and a lot more still to come. I’m grateful to have spent it with some fabulous kids, learning things about ourselves, each other, fractions and phonics!
