What a week
I had chatted to Kerry about how Ruth would love piano lessons but it's hard not having a piano to practice on. She offered to lend us their keyboard for as long as we need it. So she dropped it off after their swimming lessons today.
Tuesday 22nd: Hannah cried before getting into the pool today but they left her and so without that pressure she calmed down and got in when she was ready.
My friend had taken these photos of Ruth at swimming (as Caleb is her grandson - so she was their to watch him one day).
Hezekiah obviously loved having Dad home. Swimming also went well in the morning. Hannah did not cry and even played on the step once she was in. She told me she even got her chin wet. :-) Rachel was called Ruth once and so got a chocolate fish. They are rather big chocolate marshmallow fishes and so she shared it with her sisters for desert.
Hannah sounds like she is settling back into enjoying the water and it's nice to hear her feeling happier about it. Rachel gives me an update on what she is learning each day and it's just amazing how much she is learning this week. She got called Ruth twice today and so he said he owes her 2 fish. It was really cold today and so when the girls got home I made them some milo. A real treat and helpful to get Ruth to finally stop shivering.
Brendon got home a bit earlier today so that I could head off for a sacral cranial therapist for a treatment. It was a 25 minute drive away and I was rather sore on the way there. I don't understand all that they do but we felt we wanted to do what we could to try and help my back before labour starts. There was immediate help even as the drive back was so much better. What a week it has been. Really praying that the back issue can clear up before labour starts.
