|With no tv to watch we have plenty of time for reading in the evenings.|
Today I will be going in to my girls' school to be their Mystery Reader for half an hour in each grade.
It is Book Week and there are all kinds of exciting things happening revolving around the joy of reading. The Grade Ones are celebrating Dr Seuss while the Grade Fours are reading The Secret Seven...much to Honey's horror. She (and many others) are WAY past Secret Seven so she was less than impressed with this choice BUT they do get to do silent reading for an hour with their own books (and blankets and pillows!)
I really love being involved in the life of the school; it is a top priority. I love watching how the kids interact with one another and I really enjoy getting to know each of the children; with such small classes (on 12 per class) it is easy to build great friendships.
After reading to the kids I will be heading off to my friend to help her pack up her kitchen. It is with great sadness that we will be waving them goodbye next week. After 10years in South Africa they are returning to England. Not much would get me in any kitchen but right now I am happy to do just about anything to grab another hour or two with M.
The kids are all bringing friends home tomorrow afternoon for playdates. Love that term is winding down and there is no homework pressure - we can all just *play and chill*.
Hope your days pan out to be stellar!
