Update 09/12/2014.

We have been working on lots of practical stuff recently and Jack has completed several DIY badges including Rocketer and Chemist. He has also finished his Discover Art Award, tried Airhop and we have met up with several local families for activities.

Jack’s writing is improving very slowly and his educational psychologist is going to look into occupational therapy for him, which is great as it is something I have asked doctors about several times and just been fobbed off. He has very little strength in his hands or wrists and honestly appears to struggle to even hold a pen correctly at times. However slow I know will will get there and in his own way 🙂

My posts have gotten so behind there is probably loads to share so will post a few pictures of recent projects. Jack has a real interest in Japan so we have started working on a Japan Lapbook which I am going to expand. This week we are going to make a Christmas wreath for the front door and turn an old duck house into a hedgehog hut. I am hoping we can use that for the Wildlife Trust Kestrel Award now Jack is old enough to take part. We bought some hedgehog food so it will be good to see if we get any prickly visitors. I spotted a fox in the garden a few nights ago and our squirrel is still visiting daily hoping for nuts.
