Sorry, these posts are just all about catching up, and I think, with this post, I will have accomplished my goal!
May was full of a lot of school activities, so bare with me and the random thoughts.
We started by visiting Sophie’s classroom for summative assessment presentations, for their Unit of Inquiry, How Things Work, inventions and simple machines. She had created a page turner and something that kept the water off her book… it didn’t work, but it was fun to see her try to make something unique… not many of the inventions worked well! They also made cars to race and Stella and Sophie and Raven made a pulley system as well.
Violet got to have Duffy visit the house and he needed a fun afternoon at the park with all the MB friends. We love these kids!
There was a PE assembly at the school. The Year 1 classes danced the Whip and Nae Nae with exercise thrown in, some push ups, some jumping jacks, it was adorable, and the whole auditorium was cheering for them and singing along. So cute! Sophie was picked to play a volleyball related game, and I didn’t get pictures of her playing as there were a bunch of Year 5 kids playing badminton in front of me… but she was all ready to go in her pinny!
For Mothers Day the girls with Jeff’s help made me an upside down apple cake. It was delicious. Love those girls and that they made me a momma… they are such a joy!
I made Hattie a pillow, it turned out cute, and has You are my Sunshine on it, which was the song we always sang at nap time. She sleeps with it every night, and it was such an easy project. Sometimes I forget how easy it is to make my kids feel special… it doesn’t have to be a big thing.
We had to get all our handicrafts stamped at the Ministry of Culture and Heritage (or something like that). They stamped every single piece of my nativity… hoping the stamps are an easy removal… crazy!
The girls celebrated Africa Day at school, and I made them all cute new tops… so fun, easy and adorable. Hattie didn’t want to be left out!
We continued having game night, and Hattie made herself at home at the Oudtshoorn’s drum set. She loves it, plays it every time she sees them!
We also had Spring Fair at the school. Lots of games, food and sun. Always a hot day. But the kids sure love it!
May was a blur of activities and getting prepped for the movers. They show up on June 6th! Coming right up!
