Spring Precious Moments {24/03/2018}

I’ve not got much to talk about this week.  Thomas has been doing past papers for the three IGCSEs he is sitting this summer.  He has finished his Engineering BTEC and definitely achieved a credit and may have scraped a distinction.  He is tired, fed up with past papers and can not wait for it all to be over!  Just keepin’ it real 😉

Charlotte is working hard on her Law IGCSE which she will take this summer.  I am testing her for half an hour each day and Granny will be testing her for another half an hour each day.  She struggles to learn stuff verbatim but it is necessary for Law.  The rest of the time she just goes over and over the work hoping some of it will stick.

Lillie is beginning to find her mojo again.  Her photography tutor has been really supportive, and between us we have decided to pay for another 12 months of tutor support, giving Lillie and extra year to finish her diploma.  The stress has lifted and normal Lillie has almost fully returned.

All the children have been practicing their dancing for the new performance with Manna:

They had one of their friends round on Wednesday and I walked into the room and all four of them were on their phones.  I had to capture a photo (of course) but honestly, phones are the bane of my life 🙂

The little ones have been working on their astronomy and finally got round to doing a Venus experiment which I had planned weeks ago.  It was a great demonstration of how probes and radar works:

Apart from these meagre offerings I did not capture any other going-ons in our house.  All of us still feel permanently exhausted.  We have started taking Vitamin D spray and am hoping this might make a difference to our immunity, which has been atrocious this winter.  I am thinking of taking the whole week next week off completely to allow everyone to get their mojo back.  We’ll see.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
