A little light reading

All you parents out there will be very familiar with the hyperactivity that seems to hit after dinner before bedtime. It hasn't been like that for a long time, but last night, I was ready to send them to bed at seven for them to calm down.

It was like a tornado had gone through the house and then silence.

For some reason, J had decided he would do some maths, he even took it in the bath with him and D was doing Biology.

This morning, they got up, and with breakfast, the maths and biology is back out!

D also did some Spanish yesterday. His lessons start up again next week. He has some more to do today and tomorrow, then all his homework is done.

Romeo and Juliet has been floating around for the last couple of days too. Looks like the boys are ready to get their brains back into gear.

On the reading note, J has just read Animal Farm. He has ordered Lord of the Flies from the library and is waiting for that to come in.

We have been discussing what we will be doing over the next few months.

J-Polish, Romeo and Juliet, Maths, swimming, ice skating
D-Spanish, Science, Maths, Art, swimming, ice skating

J doesn't particularly enjoy arts and crafts, but I have a few projects in mind that might tempt him.

On Monday, D would have been due to go to comprehensive school. We are having a "not going back to school" pressie day to celebrate. We can't wait to find out what opportunities will open up for us this year.
