This morning I was hoping to see a return to our planned schedule, although as Youngest had a denstist appointment first thing I wasn't sure if he would be in the mood to get anything done afterwards. I left Eldest and Middle with Daddy with instructions to complete their mathswhizz exercises for the day before we got back to do some further work. Basically it didn't go to plan at all. Eldest did do his mathswhizz, but Middle 'forgot', and Youngest's appointment turned into two hours of him trying and failing to pluck up courage to have the second of two numbing injections. We gave up in the end, but the morning was already gone by then.
I had a look at the schedule to see if we could attempt any of the activities, and was pleased to see the Horrible Histories Vikings DVD was set for yesterday, which the boys were happy to watch over lunch today. Following that, we had a new book delivered in the post that I had been looking forward to, it being by one of our favourite picturebook authors : "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Oliver Jeffers. So we read the book together, and then the boys drew some pictures to make the crayons happy - lots of fun!
