Weekly Wrap up – Week #37


If you like the idea of a weekly wrap up, then join in over at

Three Little Ladies.

 

 

I can’t believe it has been a week gone by already!  I have only posted once this week.  I wonder where the time went? 

 

For 3 afternoons last week I went to a course on communication.  Initially I was a bit cautious and doubtful about the benefits of it (I nearly didn’t go) but…. I learnt heaps though it came from a humanistic perspective but lots of tools that I can apply to my biblical world view perspective.  It was tiring to be in a ‘lecture’ type setting, albeit very very casual – notetaking and lots of concentration.  And role play – I hate role play!!

 

We have had a bit weekend and I’m feeling very tired and should be doing some lesson prep so I’m not going to review my week as I have been but instead leave you with some photos that will show bits and pieces of our last week.

 

Once a year we get together with the co-op on a Saturday afternoon and have a good ol’ family picnic – sack races, three legged races, wheelbarrow races, egg and spoon races etc.  We usually get together on a Friday but we have the occassional event where we make it Saturday so Dads can join us.  We also had a Oral Session, where the kids present something orally, depending on their abilitites, and a Character Session where we learn a little about the character trait of the month.  Having these two activities gives the Dads an opportunity to see something of what usually happens on the Fridays.

Peter concentrating with the egg and spoon race –

shhhh – don’t tell him the egg is hard boiled!!

 

Very clever one person puppet theatre –

a sheet with a slit draped over the puppeteer.

This was one little girls Oral presentation as she

showed us her bird model, made from wire.

 

 

If you read my newsletter you would have heard that

Josh is off to Canberra this week, sponsored by Rotary

for a Citizenship education programme.  He has to wear a tie

every day and it will be freezing cold.  This photo was taken

as we learnt to put together the wardrobe and tie a decent tie!

There will be more about this adventure in times to come.

 

 

We are still in the process of tidying up the family room.

Here’s a photo of Jess in her element – she just loves to

organise and tidy things.  There is more of this project to

keep us busy in the coming week.

 

 

Nomi and Daniel reckon they’re going to miss

Josh so they thought they’d go too.

 

 

A friend came to turn our door around (a part of us

reorganising the family room).  He had a keen

apprentice watching on.

And then ….

giving it a go…
