Our Week Ahead ~ Weds 22 July 2015

This is a shorter schooling week for us, and our week ahead reflects that.  I'll just share the books we're still reading, or are about to start.
The children and I are enjoying the last 2 days of our term break; if anyone were to visit us, they'd see delight led cupboard sorting, and projects a-plenty happening.  The organised chaos that goes with decluttering and being creative can get rather interesting  :-)

D:  Tale of Oake Cake Crag ~ Wittig    (author writes about fairies, & uses anthropomorphism.... though a bonus is, the animals don't 'talk' to the people :)  And though Jay and I felt Wittig gets a little repetitive about details from previous books - really noticeable when you're listening to the books back to back - this is an interesting 'gentle' series surrounding an era in Beatrix Potter's life.)
