It seems that I posted my FTF post a couple of days ago. Boy has this week flown by. Here it is Friday again! Lego is my favourite thing this week. Homeschooling has given my children the gift of time. They don't spend huge chunks of time away from home, and sometimes they choose to spend some of that time with lego on the floor. It makes me feel that all is right with the world when my floor is covered with lego. It would start with two or three kids getting out the lego, and one by one everyone else would join in until they were all playing. Some together, some separately, but all would help when someone was looking for a specific piece. A cry would go up, "I need a blue twoer!", and everyone would look until it was found. (They had a verbal shorthand for all the pieces that possibly others wouldn't understand, but they all knew.) Those days are gone now. Earlier this month Mr 11 got out the lego and played by himself. He had a wonderful time, but his experience is so different from the other kids! So lego is my favourite this week. We have had so much fun with it. Countless towns have been built and left for weeks to play with (The kids' towns are always interesting. We attend church every week so their town would always include a church! Lolly shops, toy stores and music shops have featured heavily in their towns too.), and there have also been spaceships. Lots of spaceships!
Edit: Ooops! Go here to see everyone else's favourites!
