Ruth in her Guide Uniform for Anzac today. And then enjoyed helping us with some gardening. She enjoyed using Dad's tools to form a wall around this bed (so we can get the grass growing up nicely to the side).
And then she loved using Dad's pick to dig out this area.
It was finished up a couple of days later, but I thought I'd pop the photo in so you can see the end result. It looks really good.
Hezekiah asked me to take a photo of his creation.
Anastasia wanted Dad's pizza and was happy to just try get a bite off it. She is happy to try any food that someone else is eating.
And Asher enjoying using all 4 iPads in the house.
Saturday 4th May: Hannah's first day at netball.
She has a number of short games through the morning. I was pleased to be able to get to watch most of them.
And Hezekiah's first day at soccer. Thankfully they were both in Culverden.
So Brendon was with Hezekiah for his games but still had enough time to come over and watch Hannah play too.
We had a lovely dinner out (a real treat).
They had plans in the evening though, and so we got to enjoy special time alone in their amazing spa. It was so good to have the time to chat and just relax.

Ruth popped this photo through to me. She loves getting Asher to give Anastasia a cuddle.
Thursday 18th: Fun with Dad.
Fun with friends.
Today I didn't worry about sitting with her and allowed her to build them on her own.
This was the result. We have told people before that she builds puzzles by shape. This was a perfect example of how she does that. She does not have any concern about the jumbled pictures she created. The pieces went into their proper shaped position - and that was all that matters to her.
It's quite interesting for me that she is not interested in sorting them by picture, as she loves sorting in so many other situations.
As it was overcast this afternoon, I took Asher and Anastasia out to the tramp
Below: The girls had a fun time with Brooke making up funny games with the bikes.
Tuesday 23rd: Hezekiah loves getting cuddles too.
Ruth's colouring in competition entry. She does love doing these and puts such incredible effort into making them beautiful.
Ruth took this photo for me - Anastasia wanting to help Dad with fixing the cupboard.

Asher doing things her funny way. I walked in to see her up on the side board. We were given some books that I need to find space for on the bookshelf. While they sit there they have become an interest to her. It's so funny to see her sitting with a book, pretending to read. We have stopped the climbing, but she enjoyed the books for a few weeks. :-)
This is something she has been looking forward to for so many years now. So a very special time.
Her 18th birthday photos will go on their own post.
I got these photos after picking the children up from school (we just drove past to have a quick look). I didn't manage to get any photos of Ruth's involvement. She was again part of our school's team - which is really special for her. She hopes to be in the team each year through high school.
We "billeted" two girls for the festival. Ruth was really pleased to be able to do this.
Boxes are always fun.
Then she decided to let her do some dishes.
Ruth is so good with creating games and activities.
