Relaxing Week at Home

We have all been relaxing here in West Lafayette, each day trying to do a few different things. The girls have been playing with their Christmas present whilst Connor is buzzing around busily trying to disrupt that play. Anja was very proud playing with her snap electronics set the other night, she copied the diagram on the box and built an AM radio from the components in the box (it actually worked). Isabel has been playing with her block counting game which she loves (game to help kids learn the principles of addition using blocks of different sizes).

Lynne has been doing all sorts with the kids too. Sewing and doing a few crystallization experiments to name a few. I have read a couple of the books I got as presents and have been playing with my new software toy, Aperture. I also managed one run this week and even baked a couple loaves of bread, something I have not done in way too long.

We have also had snow which provided a great morning of activity. I trust you’re all having a good holiday.
