Relax! Just relax!

Okay so I've hit a hiccup!  Been a little tense to say the least.  This hot weather, Grrrrr, bedtimes for the kids seem to be non-existent :(
After sharing my displeasure on a couple of HE Facegroup groups, I decided I had to relax!  So what if Jellybop only wants to watch TV or hang out at Nana and Grandads!?  Legoboy has always been able to entertain himself so I guess it's a matter of time for Jellybop.  Today was payday of sorts, so we went out for McDonalds breakfast then food shopping. In the supermarket they had this cardboard thingy
So we had to have a photoshoot!
Then we spotted some rainy day purchases...
One wasn't quite saved for a rainy day, we've watched Lego Movie twice today!
I also spotted these Berol pens and was sorely tempted, £10 is that a bargain?  
Might go back for them!
We did head off to

A lovely swimming place, no place for lane swimmers but awesome for kids!
Off to get a good nights sleep soon, thanks for reading!

Day One of Home Ed Days

Today was our first official HE day!
We started of with the FREE Lego story starter Kit, and Jellybop and Legoboy made three scenes from the kit and then video'd the results with a commentary,  not bad for before 9.30am.
Before lunch Jellybop played Chequers on the tablet and Legoboy played Super Mario Flash 2 on the iMac...Retro gaming, Daddy will be proud!

After lunch we headed out for a local National Trust beauty spot, Downs Bank.

Jellybop had flip-flops on so she was drawn to the water like a magnet, Legoboy had to think for a split second before he waded in in his 'good' trainers!

They went across the tiny stepping stones and gazed into the stream for fishes.  They found one and this is what it looked like when they finally snapped it...
No I can't see it either :)

Tree climbing..
And making 'hiking sticks'

Jellybop overcome her fear of dogs today too!

all in all a great first day :)
