The week of 8th – 14th March

This was the week that the man of the house was working away – and this was the week that mormor came to stay.

A week of planning and preparing for Maya’s 10th birthday. Presents to be bought, and a surprise party to prepare for. 🙂

A week of nature walks..

A week of playing Leon’s homemade card games – of which mormor must now be an expert…?

This was the week that Mormor helped Maya to not only start, but to finish knitting a dress for her doll, Bella…

…and for playing with the Mumin house…

It was also a week of making charts. Leon devised his own chore/reward chart…

…and in typical Alfie style, whatever Leon tries, Alfie tries too….

Maya also devised a chart, on the computer, using keynote. A behavioural chart for meal times….

Something that is now in full force, with coloured stars and serious discussion. And it (mostly) works! 😉

This week was also a week of trying something new for me. An ‘invitation to explore’, inspired by our friends in London. Next to the nature shelf, an area that can be used to explore recent topics. This weeks topic was London. It took the kids a while to explore, though many questions were asked about the wooden buildings. Eventually however, Leon and Alfie both read through the whole book…loved it…and Alfie is still questioning the historical punishment of heads on sticks…! 😉

And this week, as always with Ted, was a week to get up to no good, when mummy’s back is turned….

  1. My favorite part of the week – that beautiful little island! I could sit there all day. And tell maya that Bella’s dress is just beautiful!!! Fits her perfectly!
