‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Being a home during the working week means that there has been a lot more opportunity to get photos of the boys! In the afternoon I have been trying to make sure we spend some time doing something fun. But that is still educational. On Thursday I taught Monkey to make pizza from scratch. Including the dough. He really got into the kneading and I have promised that we will be making some bread this coming week. I only snapped this on my phone and the quality is not good.  But its a nice natural pose.

The photo I have chosen of Kipper this week was taken on Sunday. Despite having a nice and sunny start it started to hail around lunchtime which meant I could not pot on some plug plants as I had planned. Instead I finally managed to get on top of my office/playroom. It is a lovely bright room but has become a dumping ground ready to move. It was piled high with boxes waiting to go into storage. However sine we are now working at home we could do with some extra space. So I moved everything around so that Kipper has more space and can get access to the toys easier.

I am hoping this means the coming week will be less stressful as he will have plenty to occupy himself. As he definitely does not see to me one for sitting at the kitchen table learning his lessons. Stay safe.

  1. My boys love making pizza too (but I do cheat and use a packet mix for the bases). I hope you’re all doing OK and managed a less stressful week x

    Looks like your boys are enjoying their selves I’m trying to keep mine occupied

  3. Although we’re at home all the time I’m being so rubbish at taking photos!! I’ve been trying to do fun educational things too – pizza is a great idea! x

  4. I like to think that all our children will be a generation of home bakers after all this! I love baking together as a way of learning about maths and measurements as well as the life skills that they pick up too. x

  5. Bravo for teaching Monkey how to cook. Apart from the benefit of the meal, little by little children gain confidence in the kitchen which will stand them in good stead when they are older.

    I am looking for the opportunities this might have given us. I am working from home and my work have agreed that once I have finished my task list I am free for the day. So we have been baking and cooking more. I have been cleaning and sorting the house, which I wouldn’t have been able to do before.
    Also been able to read more and I have started listening to podcasts

    I love the look of your playroom. The units are similar to the ones we have but our playroom is nowhere near as bright. I definitely need a splash of colour. Organising the playroom is something I’ve been doing this week too.

    I love seeing what you and your boys are doing

  9. They both look very happy – well done on managing to sort through the playroom/office. I think we could all do with some extra space in the home right now! #LivingArrows

    Fantastic to see that you are all keeping busy with lots of activities!

  11. Looks like you’re all having lots of fun! We had to quickly sort out our dumping ground room too, for my hubby to wfh. Basically just moved all the crap to another room instead 🙂

    Lucky boys, absorbing new skills all the time and if your little one learns how to interest and amuse himself with his toys and crafts it will be a useful skill to last him throughout life.
