Weekly Review

Filed under: Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 4:50 pm



My oh my I foresee this week as being BUSY!!!

First thing this morning we went to the bank.  Mr Wonderful and I had to put a cheque into my bank account and it had both of our names on it.  It was from the power company, in New Zealand each household has shares in the power company and will pay go straight back to pay a bill thats been mounting up

After that we came home and home schooled then at 11am I flew around the house while My Home Schooler did maths and got the gear he needed together for for the  Optism Yatching hes starting today.

dropped My Home Schooler off at the yatching and then Our Little Man at kindy/preschool

a couple of hours later picked them both up

after My Home Schoolers paper run took him to drama and after dinner baked a cake with My Home Schooler for play group tomorrow


play group

dropped Our Little Man home and then took My Home Schooler yatching.  Today I stayed and boy was it windy!!!  The children rowed the boats instead of yatching.  It was still fun though.

He also had an appointment with Anne too


In the afternoon at  yatching I was able to help.  At the end I was able to help wash several yatchs down.  Im a person who likes to be helpful.  If I dont know what Im doing I tend to hang back though.  One of the mothers organised us into chores today and that was great.  Much better than yesterday when I didnt know how to clean up.  Today I got in there and helped and worked hard 🙂

Also helped My Home Schooler with his paper run this afternoon.


yatching this afternoon and I took charge and washed 5 yatchsand then helped My Home Schooler with paper run again

it was raining!!!

Tonight Mr Wonderful and Our Little Man went over to Dad Wonderfuls tomorrow they are heading over to one of Mr Wonderfuls to spend the weekend.  She lives 5 hours away.   There has been word that Mum Wonderful may be coming home soon and will need Dad to nurse her.  So the family has decided that Dad needs a holiday before that happens – hence the trip.


last day yatching

to see more photos come over here

we only had one teacher with us today.  So she called upon us parents to help her.  First of all I walked around the shore to the far bank as a couple of girls had come ashore and got stuck.  Just as I got there one of the boys had pulled up in his yatch and helped them.  I was impressed that he did that.

I also helped several children when their boys took on water.

I was lastly put in charge of washing the boats at the end.  It felt good being such a help.  Although I did ask My Home Schooler later if Id been too bossy and he didnt seem to think so.  However he did take great delight in tipping a bucket of water over my head at one stage 🙂  Hes been trying since Wednesday to get me back as I got him on Tuesday with a quarter of the water he got me with today LOL


A quiet day

My Home Schooler and I rented 2 dvds and I brought dinner (Cantoon Noodle) and he brought us desert (McDs a yoghurt berry crunch each – I LOVE the berries on the bottom)

After we warched the dvds we went back and had a good old sing song and dance

enjoying the movie singing and dancing in my chair


Today My Home  Schooler is helping Anne at the Christmas Expo where she is going to try to sell some of her learning games.  My Home Schooler will be showing people how to play her games.

I went to church followed by a church lunch.  I was running late as I decided I should cook something for it.


Then I went to the Musuem and Art Gallery (I found out that as a home schooling mother I can get in free anytime I want 🙂 and watched a video about this exhibitionand looked around very interesting.  I want to teach My Home Schooler about this.  Also looked at this exhibition –  Like: An Experiment In Interpretation.  I dont know if everyone would appricate it but I read what it was about and read the peom and compared the different art works to see how close they were to how I would interprete it and then read about those artists.

Then I went and had an icecream and went to the library 🙂

A nice day to myself 🙂
