A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 5. It’s our fifth week of juggling life and school work but this week I have been taking things slowly. We are still playing catch-up on Little E’s school work but I’m not stressing about it. I was also able to take a step back from work this week as we wait for the next part of the brief to arrive.
Project 365 – 2021 Week 5
We were waiting for a delivery of different colour paper so that Little E could work on her art lessons. The delivery arrived in the week so today Little E spent time creating a ripped paper landscape.
Ethan was desperate to visit the sea today. Our local compromise is to visit Brightlingsea. On the way back we had to stop to pick up some lunch. Ethan quickly jumped in the driving seat when Darren left the car. I think he is missing going on adventures in the car. This moment was bittersweet for me as at this moment in time I don’t think Ethan will ever be able to drive. I’m not sure what the rules are for having an autism diagnosis and driving a car. His current stims would also make him unsafe on the road.
We were all able to get out for a walk today. We were able to change our normal local walk but completing the Castle Park Junior Ranger Trail. By doing this we were able to discover areas of our park that we have never visited before. Including the sensory garden.
More art for Little E today. This time her creation was creating a flower by rolling and folding paper.
I was able to complete my Beauty and the Beast puzzle today. I found the Beasts face quite tricky which tested my puzzling skills.
It was very foggy today and I was desperate to get the children out for a walk before lunch. The fog didn’t want to shift so we went for a foggy walk. Typically the fog cleared and the sun came out as we were eating our lunch.
I love this shirt from Sainsbury’s. I ordered it before Christmas to wear on Christmas day. It did have gold stars in the pattern but washing it once and they washed away. I contacted Sainsbury’s today and they are happy to refund me but I need to send the shirt back.
That was our 2021 Week 5 adventure. You can read about our week 4 here.
