Total clean up!

I just couldn't stand it anymore!!

After 4 hours of work on Monday night and 4 bags of total rubbish and a boot load of op shop toys, the kids plaroom went from this

To our new homeschooling room!

Check out Mollies new home corner set up...she LOVES it!

And just outside the window.....a devine smell

My gardenias! I am one less stressed Mummy!

My artists at work!

tThe kids wanted paintings for their wall so I set them up on an easel, with a canvas and paints and here they are.

Lucas chose to do his outside - his painting is of himself and his puppy

And Mollies inside - of fairies of course!!!

Will get photos of the finished paintings today.

They immedialtey wanted to do another!!

Our new and old members!

Introducing our pets - new and old!

Here is Monty our 6 yr old Kelpie X. He is a lovely natured dog, but he has a few 'issues' - very timid and doesn't like kids!!!

Here is Finley.... Mollies Tabby kitten, here he is 8 weeks old, and she LOVES him!
Here is Odie, Lucas's Labrador X puppy, here he is 8 weeks old. This puppy is a dream come true for Lucas!

And here is Finley and Odie, sharing a snooze together!!

Yesterdays baking delight!

I use our weekly baking as our maths acitivities for the day. Through these baking sessions, the children have learnt about measuring, weight, reading recipes, temperatures and learnt to use the microwave and oven - under strict supervision of course!!!
Here our my Cheese and Bacon Bread rolls, Lucas's choc chip biscuits and Mollies Tani Tup Takes ie Sultana Cup Cakes - YUM!!!

Our homeschooling morning!

Lucas and Mollie love their homeschooling activities.
Here they are writing and illustrating their very own readers. Mollies is about a busy day on a farm and Lucas's is about Mother Nature.
When Dave got home from work, they raced out with their books to show him and they even took them to our homeschooling morning to show their friends. These are very precious times for me!!!

Farbenmix - OLIVIA!

Here is a dress I made today. It was orginally for my lovely niece but Mollie claimed it for her own, she doesn't usually do that but 'Mumma it has butterflys and flowers one it'!.....I have another cut out ready to go for Eliza now!
Here she is trying the new dresses climbing capabilities!!
