We had a day stuck in the house doing odd jobs whilst waiting for a parcel to be delivered (which didn't arrive). We listened to the birds outside, spoke about spiders and flies and wondered what it'd be like to be various animals and insects.
Today we had to walk into town to go back to the opticians and pick up my contact lenses and Logan's new glasses. On the way back we took a walk along the river. The children wanted to stop and take a look at the patterns that were being created on the water. They stood … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 14
Today, I was mostly stuck form filling (another 8 questionnaires arrived that needed to be filled in ahead of a therapy retreat we are going to). So another load of hours stuck indoors. We talked about spiders, and how although they are kinda creepy and I don't really like them, I appreciate that they catch … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 13
Late posting for yesterday: it was a tough day which involved hours and hours of form filling (that's what happens with children who need lots of intervention, every assessment requires form after form after form). But we took sanctuary in hearing the birds all having fun, even if we couldn't!!!
Due to Caitlin's aches and pains today, we have just been at home. We did manage to finish the painting of the playhouse porch (we laid a new floor on it). And managed to sort the toys to go in the playhouse. So the kids now have a play area outside, that is fully operational! … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 11
I bet you can't guess what we did today... oh yes... that's right. Another day in the garden. But today, patience and tolerance of being exposed to the "what's going to be... once the work is done" was too much for the children. It was awful. I mean, with attachment issues, change is never easy, … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 10
A bit late in posting this, but yes... you guessed it... another day in the garden for us. Seems to be our life at the moment. But we were spotting bugs as we went - this one was a favourite, as the children absolutely loved the colours. We did try and identify and it appears … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 9
Well it's been a long day... I didn't manage to get a photo of the 30 Days Wild activities in action... yes like most days at the moment we have been working in the garden. Desperately clearing the ground to try and ready it for the children's play area section. I'm ignoring the end 10 foot … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 8
So... Ummmmmm.... Yeah.... Day 7. We enjoyed some time outdoors... We laughed and we tried to kill eachother... We had a go at the Da Vinci bridge. Turns out it's quite difficult, especially with a child that is incapable of understanding instructions I mean quite literally can't take them in), and one that is but … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 7
Today we built a bee home, we didn't put it up yet, but we definitely built it. We were given it by one of the grandparents who'd been given it free with something ages ago, and just hadn't got a clue where we could put it (being in rentals, and not being able to make … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 6
