This is slightly off tangent from schedules, but I'm including it anyway; I've ordered my homeschool planner for next year, and was pleased to find that the Ultimate Homeschool Planner comes in blue tones :D
(Sadly, bookdepository don't currently stock it.)
Babylon's Ark ~ Lawrence Anthony, read by Simon Vance (I purchased it for $2.95, as a daily deal). Not sure of the content yet, so I'm not recommending it, just mentioning it.
Update: Too much coarse language in this for me, which is disappointing as I want to find out about the animals and the zoo. I'm going to try and procure it thru the library as a read. Editing out the language is more doable in book format; and an audio you get to hear it whether you want to skip it of not.
With books, Daisy is wanting to go through some vintage titles as her free reading titles, and since vintage books are not always easy to locate quickly in NZ, and the overseas book prices are seriously 'ouch' ..... we've elected to go with kindle options.
She's going to read:
Wide, Wide World ~ Susan Warner (Mentioned by Martha Finley, the author of the Elsie Dinsmore series)
The Daisy Chain ~ Charlotte Yonge
The Courts of the Morning ~ John Buchan (A book about Sandy Arbuthnot, Richard Hannay's friend.)
Onto crochet and then card crafts:
Daisy and her friend Fleur have been working on few crochet projects; namely lap rugs, blankets, or a throw.
I'll post pictures of Daisy's lap rug further down this post, otherwise the colours of both crochet projects look rather garish together :p
Fleur's 10yr old sister, Grace, made the next one (beneath). So bright and pretty!
Grace has made some other cards that showcase her card making flair much better than this one does, unfortunately I don't have any photographs of them.
I'll see if I can coerce her into letting me share the canvas project she made......
One, we made for granddad for his 80th (which I wasn't so fussed on, as we didn't have the colour range of card stock, or the right colour/texture of twine to create the look we wanted. I still gave it to him though ;-) )
And, this last card was made for my lovely neighbour's birthday.
Elsie has to be in on ANYTHING Daisy is doing, and can make a real mischief-making nuisance of herself; notice that she's sitting right where Daisy needs to play ;-)
