Of slides, wood and vegetables
It's great for them to spend the time together and we love laughing at how Brendon looks exhausted when they get back (it's looks only though as he is dripping with sweat) and Ruth looks totally fine (although she looks fine she has had a real good work out and is rather tired once they are done). She has already started talking about them lengthening the route. Hopefully they can keep it up as I know they will both enjoy it so much.
Finally got a photo of the sling that a friend lent me. When Sandy arrived for a visit once with her in there she said "I see you are wearing her". :-) It's wonderfully comfortable for both of us and has helped Asher when she is struggling with her tummy and wants to be upright.
Again we laughed at Hannah as she immediately asked Dad to take a photo of her. Posing sideways - just like Mum.
Friday 8th: Brendon hired a wood splitter for this afternoon to use after work. I managed to get 45 minutes work in with him after dinner (with Asher in the sling) and then Rachel took over once the others had gone to bed.
It ended up being just less than 2 hours work but with starting a little later Rachel and Brendon only got finished once it was dark. I forgot to take a photo on Saturday of the section we did - so I took a photo on the Sunday once it had been covered. We seem to keep getting higher as we pack - so the last section is on the left hand side - to where you see it get a little lower. We are pretty sure now that we should have enough wood for winter.
Sunday 10th: A nice photo of Ruth and Asher.
Now 3 weeks old.
The grape vine is looking really nice this year again (a lot more controlled as last year Feb it grew wild while we were away). There are loads of grapes growing but we don't get to see many ripe as the children pick them as soon as they turn red. :-)
