Sweeping the lawn with brooms. I’ve got no idea why, but it’s keeping them entertained :lol:

What are yours doing?

I have no idea, I havent seen any of them this morning.

I doubt they are sleeping, well maybe the oldest is because I had to yell at her to go to bed at 1am, as all I could hear was her talking to her friends online.

I just dont want to go near them because then they will be at me for food :lol:

Oldest and youngest are jumping on the trampoline throwing a ball at each other.

The other is repeatedly pressing the siren on his fireman Sam fire truck. He got it for his birthday today, so I can't really get cross at him.

DS6- playing some dinosaur maths app thing. Winning!

DS12- jumping on the trampoline "doing recess Mum you butthead." :glare:

Blowing up water balloons with air inside I believe this may be fit some kind of art project or it could just be random

13yo is messaging a friend on Instagram (I think she knows they all pop up on my device!).  Lots of GIFs being sent.

11yo just finished colouring in and is now doing some coding work.  8yo is outside with dad who is painting the roof.  Just went and saw what he was up to.  Took me several minutes to find him and he is sorting boxes.  He is keen to take a heap to school for box work and is collecting them ready for when ‘corona goes’.

One is laying on the lounge room floor clutching a photo from mine and his fathers wedding and sobbing because he wasn’t there...I think the isolation might be getting to him. The other is asleep which is lovely.

One is minecrafting online with friends, they’re all talking over FaceTime as well eating skittles. Another is playing his little game on my work computer, stole the others skittles and things got very loud.
shhhhh it’s gone quiet again. I’m working the rest of the week, so just about to hang out washing to keep up with the clothes.

Miss 4 is having a zoom meeting with 8 of her preschool classmates. It's the most adorable chaos you've ever seen!

Very cute, 22fmp.

I don't know what mine are doing because I'm at work in the lab (not right this second obv, I'm at my desk waiting for my incubation step to finish so I can do the next thing and then get the heck out of here).

They are at home with DH. I guess they'll be doing smatterings of school work (DS2, who is 3, likes to join in with DS1's year one work - it's, um, a challenge), and eating. Always so hungry apparently.

And I expect to come home to find them playing MarioKart on the Switch we've borrowed from DH's work while their office is largely closed.

That or they will be jumping on a mattress dragged from their bedroom again.

Gaming and youtubing. This morning I got us a Donut King Iceolation box so that was a bit fun. DS16 opted to eat his plain though.
