This is the weekly diary of our lockdown experiences that I am doing so we can look back in months and years to come to see what happened and how we were feeling, it’s such a different time and experience for us all. This week’s big change was the kids were back on there homeschooling.
The New Norm seems to be the word of the week in the world, and for me, it definitely been that working most days has become that and thankfully I seem to be settling down in similar shifts every week which for me is far easier, I’m seeing the kids less at the moment which is a little upsetting but I get to see them at unusual times in contrast for them not being at school, but we need the money.
Boo has still been powering on doing some of her work, as well as bits and pieces round the house, she is systematically doing stuff around the house room at a time, this keeps her busy, she is still fairly busy on her blog but nowhere near compared to pre lockdown.
School work again
But the main change is back to school, homeschooling began again after out Easter holidays break, thankfully it seemed the schools have put more focus into it, and created more slicker, in-depth resources etc, Both the kid’s schools have prepared far more and using the digital side of things, like websites and emails etc to the max.
This is extremely helpful, alongside that many companies out there have put on a host of digital content learning to aid it. Monday and Tuesday, as you would expect, was a tougher start getting the kids back into that routine, especially with Joe Wicks PE, but by the end of the week, they had got into that rhythm again.
The other big thing for them was baking, Roo loves to bake though Piglet likes to be involved, even if it’s small as she doesn’t know what she’s doing etc, however, Tigger had a school task, and it was to bake some biscuits, arguably the first thing he’s ever really had to bake.
So with Roos baking etc, we added on that she can help Tigger, it was good practice for her to be honest, not only to bake but able to teach and give instructions, Boo and I only helped a little, they worked really well together as it was good to see that Tigger didn’t really get frustrated which is often his biggest drawback.
