So, a day at home for us instead, with a college assessor joining us for part.
Our morning started with a quick clear up and reading session. Chelsea finished reading her chapter book - Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey.
Don't you just love this style? Fake glasses that she doesn't need, scarf and a dressing gown over clothes is the new look for 2012 dont'cha know.
I won't share Chelsea's thoughts on the book on here as she is, as I type this, typing up a book review for her own blog over here: http://unschooledmusings.blogspot.com Chelsea would love to have more readers and followers if anyone fancies popping across to read what a 16 year old has to say. If she actually thinks people are interested in what she writes she may actually continue writing - I can hope.
Tiegan is reading Best Friends by Jacqueline Wilson. She does love reading so much, I often look over across the room to see her with head buried in a book. Tiegan also really enjoys reading out loud to me too, which she did yesterday whilst I tried to get to grips with crocheting.
Please note, I didn't knock Taisia out as it looks like I did in that picture, I wasn't that desperate to crochet.
I did however, master the single crochet stitch.
You can just tell how chuffed I am huh? That saying simple things please simple minds has never been so true.
We went for a lovely walk around the village, watched birds flying and tried to identify leaves and trees. Taisia is loving her ability to stroll around with us, although it does turn a 20 minute jaunt into something nearer an hour.
Home again to get warm and for Joseph to practice his Guitar Hero talents. He takes it very seriously...
I bought a second hand different version of the game from Gamestation which has a Bon Jovi song on it (just for me) - you can imagine the rockin' that goes on to that one!
