first day

So it was the first day of term in our neck of the woods…

We began with some maths. My son learned about something called an exponent and wrote a question for me that I couldn't answer. My daughter learned about adding numbers to other numbers and not panicking when the numbers had nines in them.

Then my son began writing Part 2 of his Book Series. My daughter chose to do a test in an english workbook that she likes. And she began a story about a ninja puffin named "Puffin."

And then it was time to go.

Time for the first day of term to really begin.

The kids had their tennis lessons here

(or nearabouts):

And then we went here.


there was a cubby to play in…

a tree to climb…

a ball to kick …

a path to follow…

and a feather to find.

The verdict?

We loved our first day of term.


  1. Now that's a learning environment!

  2. I found you over at Nie's show and tell. I thought that you might enjoy a project that I have going on over at my Blog. Every Tuesday I host The Happiness Project. You simply post a photo of something that makes you happy and then link up.

    I'm trying to take over the Blogosphere with happiness. Here is a link to this week's post if you want to see what it's all about.



I love hearing from you! Thank you for your heartfelt, thoughtful responses—they lift me, and give me light.
