Meg's still unwell (worse today, back on the inhalers) so we had another day at home.
Betsy had a marathon sleep and didn't get up until 11.30, so Freddie and I watched White Fang. What a great film! While we watched we chatted about the wild west, gold mining, animal cruelty and dog fighting, Native Americans, pioneers, wolves howling at the moon.
Later, I got Rob's childhood train set out. Meg looked slightly interested, but in the end sat near the track holding a train and looking sorry for herself.
The Hexbugs came out for the first time in a while. I need to buy a job lot of batteries for them.
Freddie got the microscope out. I tried to get a drop of blood for him to look at, but despite me jabbing a pin in my finger a dozen times I didn't get any!
Games came into their own today, though to be fair they usually do here. Betsy played World Of Zoo on the Wii. They've unlocked all the animals now. Freddie continued with Dragon Vale when Rob got home, as he has the Nexus during the day.
I need to plan another home day tomorrow. Umm, painting, marble run, make a birthday card for my mum....I need inspiration! Off to pinterest I go....
