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!
