Not Back to School

This post is part of a group of posts that gives you a glimpse into a regular day in our homeschool life. You can read all of the posts here.

So this week we got back into the swing of things if you like. We never really got out of the swing as unschooling means we just carry on doing our own thing right the way through the summer holidays. The only difference being daddy is at home with us.

The girls really struggled the first half of the week. They argued constantly, snapped at each other, and were tired, teary and cranky. Which by the end of Tuesday made me tired, teary and very cranky. When we got down to it whilst snuggling and apologising to one another at bedtime, they just really really missed their daddy. 

Wednesday soon cheered them up when we met our lovely friends, and had an amazing day of play. They ending up climbing into the water feature and pouring buckets of freezing water over their heads. A proper not back to school celebration.

I haven't shared a Day in the Life post recently, so I thought it would be fun to do one, once we had become used to not having Daddy around.

Read with Us: September 2017 (Bedtime Stories)

What we've mostly been reading this month . . .  (Bedtime Stories Special)

We are currently reading 4 chapter books at bedtime (a few pages from each). Now the girls are getting older they are moving away from picture books and are craving something with more depth. I have talked about a couple of these book series before, but I will talk about them again as we can't get enough. All of these books are fab for boys and girls alike. If they're a capable reader they'll manage them on their own. But my girls love being read to at bedtimes, especially when we do silly accents for the characters.
