Busy Week

Every day  this week I have meant to blog. I have planned the day and put in some time with the computer, time to catch up with my e-mails and to update this blog. It just hasn't happened. This term is full of activities and I am also working more hours than I have done since I had a full-time job before the children came along. It feels as if I am trying to hold on to routine, to actively educate the children, to keep on top of the house, my running and life in general. And I worry that I let things slip. 
But when I reflect on the week, on all the things that have kept me too busy to type, I realise that the children have been discussing maths concepts, climbing at the rock-wall, swimming, to the cinema, horse-riding, playing with friends, planning a trip abroad, listening to a classic story, talking about their feelings, reading poetry aloud and attending a history workshop on World War 2.

It happens. They live, they grow and they learn.

It's been a while since I've visited you here. Great pics of F and J -- J looks so dashing! Very handsome. We're knee deep in the university application process, which for us has been challenging to put the last four years of 'out of the box' learning into a box that traditionalists can relate to. It is coming around and should all be done in a few months. C has 8 schools in her sights and since she is planning to study violin performance that means auditions as well as academic transcripts, a 'school' profile, personal essays, etc. Fun, fun, fun. Jean
