Dinosaur Musings

Dino pairs / snap game

Number pegging for The Boy.  He's learning his teen numbers now.  Good job dude.




Inventing your own dinosaur



The Boy began painting his dinosaur egg after a 24 wait for the papier mache to dry.

Papier Mache Dino Eggs

The Boy began the day making a papier mache dinosaur egg.  He got super, mega, uber-gluey.  We are hoping the egg (papered-balloon) will be paint-able tomorrow.



The Palaeontologist returned for further excavation work.

Sometimes one has to work on the floor.

Learning to take-away.

Almost at the end of his book.  Clever sausage.

I run out of printer ink at the most inopportune times.  Home-made dinosaur worksheets for The Boy.

Sea Cadets with a handsome Royal Marine Cadet Instructor Papa.  I do like my family :)

Dinosaurs

Back to School!

Dinosaurs!  What better way to start 2014?




While the girls worked on dino lap-books, The Boy got all kitted out to become a Palaeontologist.  I buried some cotton wool buds (bones) in sand and he flew in on his aeroplane to inspect potential fossils.


Carefully excavating the bones...


...he identified them as belonging to a brontosaurus.  What a find!


 Big feet, mini arms, scary face = T-Rex.


Our bone finds.  What a collection.

Our afternoon progressed to Poetry, Maths, English and Nature Study...

...but the Palaeontologist was never far away.

The Epiphany

The Magi are filled with awe by what they see; heaven on earth and earth in heaven; man in God and God in man; they see enclosed in a tiny body the One whom the entire world cannot contain.


Hello 2014!

2013 was a tough year in many respects but it has made me stronger and a little bit wiser and hopeful for a blessed 2014.  We saw in the New Year with lovely friends, our kiddlets stayed up 'til way past midnight on a fun sleepover with their friends and we spent New Year's day recovering and napping and recovering and napping.  Napping is always a good way to start the year I think.

Papa returned to work and we had a few fun days catching up with friends, enjoying the last of the Christmas activities and Mummy did a lot of housework ready for the new term.
