February? Already?

School starts tomorrow.  I am almost as disappointed as Pearl is, we have had a great 3 weeks together with our walking and sewing and cafe lunches.  We jogged in the mornings… well, some mornings, anyway.  And we did go for a long walk at least once a week.  She did actually tidy her bedroom, and we did some maths every day (sometimes under protest: “Mum, I can’t believe you actually like maths.  You are so weird!”)  We didn’t get much Latin done, but there’s plenty of time for that.

What else was on our list?  Movies – we saw Tangled, and both enjoyed it.  She has just won tickets to Secretariat, we know nothing about it except that it’s about a race-horse, that’s enough for her and she is happy.  She’s quite good at winning movie tickets – last year it was The Princess and The Frog.  We went to the planetarium, but only once, and she had a ball at “craft camp”, making several gifts for family birthdays coming up.

The house is reasonably clean, and we spent a few afternoons lazing around eating ice-cream and reading the books we brought home from the library in huge quantities.

I think we can call January a success.  Let’s see how tomorrow morning goes…

    That sounds so nice. It’s good to have a vacation end with you wanting more. That speaks volumes about the time off. 🙂

      Thanks! It has been a really lovely holiday. It is so good to enjoy each other’s company and not to be desperately holding on until school goes back. Of course, now I have to go back to work tomorrow, too…
