The mess that has been this year continued along with my sustained failing to manage one in school and two out. I've ended up palming most of the school-related stuff off to JJ, which has mostly been parent/teacher meetings and he's supposed to be helping her with homework and doing the admin stuff too but somehow I'm still getting stuck with that (guess the 12yo is just used to me dealing with most things).
10yo got into making paper planes again, he was happily off on his own once I'd reminded him how to make them. As he was occasionally cutting our printing paper into squares for some of the plane designs, he decided not to let the off-cuts go to waste and started making smaller and smaller planes. I think he remembered doing something similar last year.
