#6 week 32

Okay, so I am actually huge :-).  Baby and uterus measuring about 2 weeks bigger…. hmmm either a big baby or it’s going to come early.  Considering Derek is away the weekend before the ‘due date’ I think I’ll opt with bigger!!

Baby dropped a bit last week and then rose up again this week, so I’m lacking a lot of gusto.  I have gone back to either cleaning or homeschooling, not both.  The kids are not in a very good routine.  They are whinging every time I mention formal work.  Natural homeschooling is working brilliantly though.  Zi’s reading chapter books (with pictures) and Eli is really into the Secret Seven.  I’m doing reading eggs again with Gubbs because it’s easy and we have a free five week subscription, may think of purchasing this time 🙂  We went to a Gladiator fighting demonstration on the weekend which has inspired ancient Rome to come alive in our backyard… yay!!

Music seems to be on the backburner.  Eli does some practice by himself, though he really needs at least a couple of mum lessons a weeks which he is not getting.  Gubbs and Zi get violin when I am able which means there isn’t a lot of progress happening :-(.  I was hoping Gubbs would play Twinkles at his solo, but not sure if that is going to happen in the next two weeks.  Zi is enjoying playing now that he has a few songs under his belt.  He will often pick up his violin and just play his songs without me :-).  Eli is up to me in piano.  He is about to start book2 and so I am hoping to pick up my practice and learn along with him…. we’ll see :-).  Thinking vaguely about introducing Zi to the piano using his violin songs and seeing what happens…..
