Wednesday 27th: Asher had me laughing so hard today. She was dancing for us and enjoying the fact that she was making people laugh.
LEFT: Tuesday 5th March: Ruth heading off on an overnight camp. Including CAVE diving. What an opportunity.
Brendon and I have been attending a Introduction to Mindfullness Course on Tuesday evenings. This was week 3 of 4. Not sure what I did with the first 2 photos. It's been really interesting. Some of the ideas have come up in different discussion in varied situation.
"What I resist persists. What I allow myself to feel will let me heal."
Most people automatically think mindfullness is emptying your mind but it's the opposite. It's being more aware of your thoughts and then controlling them. When it comes to emotions, we more often than not try to ignore or suppress our emotions, and then don't allow ourselves the needed time to properly deal with whatever has happened.
Anastasia spotted some of her pants that had been washed and wanted to put them all on. She was really layered up (more than what you can see).
Hezekiah's class singing in assembly today.
We took them on the lookout walk. The weather wasn't great for the view, but helpful for the walk.
It has been wonderful to be able to get out the house and spend some time together (40 min travel time to just chat). And we have learnt a lot too.

Sunday 17th: This afternoon Ruth decided to make her own face mask. She is so interested in beauty products. No idea where she gets that from (definately NOT from me).
She is so into fashion too. She was sorting through some clothes and found this skirt. She insisted I try it on. She said it made me look really modern. :-)
Tuesday 19th: Sister fun.
Rachel is making the wedding cake for a dear friend as a wedding gift. She is much braver than me.
Thursday 21st: Enjoying some time outside in the shade with Asher. She is still not 100%, and didn't even want to smile for the camera today.
What a funny face Hannah. :-)
More visible on her body, but still not that easy to see on a photo. I even called the medical center as I was wondering if it could be measles (and it's a notifiable disease). They were not at all worried though. The doctor felt it was just a viral infection and because she is feeling better, there is nothing more we need to be doing.

And then when they started singing - well it was just beautiful. Her face just lit up.
She always loves singing Happy Birthday at church, so we know it's a song she loves.

Fun at the pool this afternoon. It's wonderful to see Hezekiah so quickly confident to jump off the top step.
Didn't get them both in the air at the same time - but still cool action photos.
That's a very big baby to have on your hip Ruth. :-)
Anastasia has been enjoying this little horse toy lately. Ruth spotted her lying with her head on the pillow and took this photo. Such a cutie.
She had an odd rash on her legs today. Thankfully it cleared quickly enough.
(NOTE: Only writing this in September 2019, I have now met a top swimming coach from the USA. She told me that it's because of her body type. She just sinks. She has worked with African Americans and although it's possible to help them - it takes a lot of specific training as they have a huge physical disadvantage.)
Thank you girls.
