Month: July 2018

Washing, Washing And More Washing

I have spent most of today working. I have been sorting through this month’s pen pal sign up and matching everyone up. It has taken hours! And in between that I have been ensuring that the kids have been fed and watered (they’ve been quite content as they have spent …

The School Reports Are In
