Swimming, friends and wood
One of Ruth's highlights of every year is this swim week. She is our little fish who just loves the water.
Learning different ways of getting into the pool.
After lunch the 3 Spencer girls came for a visit and Dutch Blitz was enjoyed again. When Kerry came to pick them up managed to visit for a bit before they needed to head off. So it was lovely having the extra company through the day. It's the best part of the holidays for the girls.
Ruth took this photo of the puzzle Brooke did.
It was raining when Brendon got home and so that delayed the wood slitting for a bit. Alby had offered to help when he could and got about an hours work of work done before dinner. Rachel and Brendon then got a bit more done after the other children had gone to bed.
Alby came after his guests left after dinner and Brendon and he worked till just before 10pm. I managed to help them as well for a little while but eventually we just had to stop as the light was almost gone. I was really thankful for his help as they got so much done in those hours. There was just a bit left which we managed to get finished off on Sunday (without interrupting our other plans for the day).
Below are the comparison photos from Friday late afternoon to Sunday afternoon when it was all finally finished.
