What Did We Do All Day

It’s suppose to be a school day today. A replacement school day for additional break during Hari Raya. I totally forgotten about it until the kids told me on Thursday. I told the kids, can I continue to assume that I didn’t know about it? The kids were actually reluctant to go too. C’mon,  we need our weekend to chill and rejuvenate before the start of another week. One day of rest is simply not enough, though last Monday was a public holiday that make this week short, but to have just one day off before next week begins, just isn’t enough.

JS was a little fickle minded on Friday. A while, she said she wanted to go as it’s the last chance to be selected for school sports day, at the same time she had promised teacher to assist the teacher. I am quite ok with it , as long as it is out of her own initiative. However she changed her mind again on Friday night.

They woke up late this morning. At about 10a.m. I then went out with the two little ones to run errands. by the time I got home, they told me they had clean and tidy up the room for me already, and they were reading books (of course not school books la!) We then had brunch and I made them wash their own school shoes. After which JS helped me with making the custard for custard bun. The kids then played some boardgames together downstairs while I sneaked up to be in front of the pc. JS drew too and then she helped me knead the bread dough. Then she was working on pysla beads. Later on she told me she wanted to try sewing for JL’s Barbie.  I have no knowledge in clothes making, I just let her google on youtube and to figure it out on her own.

It’s almost 5pm now. We would have gone to the pool if not the gloomy weather, but i guess the rest of the day will be spent on craft and books and finish off with the bread making.

Shall we ever have a chance to be a full time homeschooler, this will be our unschool life. Very unstructured and every spontaneous. And the kids do not really need me to entertain them, they can always find their own activities to do (without TV and Computer Games)
