Week in Review - Looking for a House

One of the benefits of home schooling is the flexibility. Monday was a bank holiday. On Saturday Miss K said to me, "Monday bank holiday, no school." I replied, "Monday is a bank holiday and you will have school." I don't know where she learned it was a bank holiday. Yes, she does drop the little words when she speaks (we are working on getting those words in her sentences).

We did school on Monday and then took Tuesday and Wednesday off to go look at housing. We have been looking at houses online. That was my nightly activity, check what houses are listed for rent. We had two appointments on Tuesday. The first one was nice but the condition was so-so and the price was beyond our budget. The next place we looked at, I think we knew it was the house as we were driving we went past the church we will attend. It is a semi-detached, it is older which means the rooms are larger. The kitchen is relatively new, there is new carpet and the walls are neutral. It was in our budget. The bus stop was just around the corner. There are some shops within walking distance -- small grocer, post office, butcher, hardware store, and a health food store. We put a deposit on it and now we are doing all the application and waiting. We did look at one other house but was way out of town.

We enjoyed lunch at a park that we found along the way.



Thursday and Friday were back to school. We are slowly finishing books and subjects. I have looked at where we are to see how much longer we have. We will do some different learning in the summer.

That wraps up our week here. We will be staying at a holiday cottage for the next week to be closer to where we will be moving.
