Term 4 Day 1

Today was our first day of term 4. It was a little hard to get back into School. We have been pretty laid back over the holidays.
Anyway with sleep in our eyes we got breakfast, and readied ourselves for the day.
Brid was ready before 9. yeah!!! very good.
I started this term with a whole program, and determined to complete it all. I break term 4 into finish of the years work and get ready for Advent.
This year I want to celebrate All Saints Day in a big way, so I have a few ideas for that.
I want to get several topics and books finished. I want to complete 'Blood and Guts', and I was surprised when I found we were very close to completing St Patricks' Summer- its been our faith reader. Its been a great read, one I have enjoyed. Brid is well able to read herself, so I do not do as many read alouds now.
So now we have 2 chapters to read on Blood and Guts and it is complete, but this term, I have taken the Human Body unit to a different level, as I will start talking about changes using Mothers Little Helper and taking brid on a mother daughter journey into her growing up.
We started last week by praying the Rosary and then reading the first chapter. It was a very beautiful moment for me as Brids' mother. God has entrusted Her to me and this job I have will be done prayfully and with Gods' guidance.
Maths is a whole area we are getting through, but it is a hard and big job. It sometimes seems tedious. I have the new 6/5 to go into, but it looks like it will be a lot later than I thought we would be. I just need to be patient with Brid and encourage her.

So today we started all our studies and we worked very late, but we had a little bit of fun doing it to. Brid rode her bike, Lunched together, Daddy was home all day and I got yje bas done.
So after school Brid relaxed and got ready for Girl Guides while I vacuumed up the leaves around the back paved area.

Daddy went off to work and I took Brid to Guides.
I went for a very fast walk around the circuit Dermot & I use. That was my day Brids day and it was a big first day, but lots of fun as well.
