Atmosphere, Art, Archaeology, Adventure and ANTS!

This week we've been looking at the different layers of the atmosphere, positive and negative space in pictures, archaeology and having an adventure at Compton Castle (see Mirjams blog she has better photos) and Woodlands amongst many other things.
Studying the different layers of atmosphere brought back memories of plotting tephigrams when I worked for the Met Office. I wasn't sure I'd remember how to plot them so went hunting on the internet, if anyone is interested here is the link. Paul says he still uses tephigrams every day at work, but of course they're all computer generated now. Also this week I decided to start Maisie with "teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons". I've had the book for ages and never used it, I've even been tempted to sell it. We'll see how it goes, so far Maisie seems keen.
On Friday Cameron had an impression taken for his new brace, this time it's going to be a twin block and he's due to get it in about 2 weeks.
On a completely different note we have ants visiting our home at the moment and they have taken a liking to my sunflower seedlings grrrrrr. I didn't think they'd eat them, but sure enough when I researched it on the internet it's not an uncommon problem.

Will be very interested how you and Maisie get on with the "100 lessons" book on reading. I've been very tempted to get that book myself....Julia (Roebuck)xx

I've got the Teach your child to read book too - thought about using it for Tiegan, think we did about 3 pages then she taught herself just by reading books. I have thought of selling it too, but held on to it just in case - it might suit Callum...maybe...

Hope the ants situ is soon sorted!
