Vanuatu farewell and a fever
We are just normally so busy chatting (and looking after Asher) that we don't get around to taking photos. So it was nice to get at least these with him having some fun. They often play catch too - and the hall is generally filled with loads of laughter of the children playing with them.
Such fun memories for him.
I took this photo on Saturday 6th. He spent most of the day sleeping. He was a very easy patient and just woke, had a bit of water, tried to eat something and went back to sleep.
Although his temp was high (above 39) he did not have any pain anywhere - and so I was very thankful for this.
On Saturday afternoon Ruth made cheesecake for me. She is always asking to be able to do things in the kitchen, so she was thrilled when I asked her to do this for me. I am thrilled with the idea of giving more and more of the cooking duties to the girls. It's most definitely not my favourite activity and I just do things because they have to be done. I love that both Rachel and Ruth enjoy baking and cooking.
On Tuesday (9th Sep) the girls got their ballet results (below). They both did really well.
If you missed the videos - you can see them here.
Ruth made Hannah's wrap into a pizza today.
The wrap is made with Oats (made into flour), cream cheese and eggs. So a great wheat free lunch for her.
Thursday 11th. It's always so nice to see these two playing on their own. Asher has been very needy of me over the last few weeks (and months really) so I treasure times when she will happily play without me right next to her. And it's wonderful to see Hezekiah making up his own creative games.
If Asher hears the dogs bark - she heads over to this chair and tries to open the window and tries to tell them to be quiet. It often sounds a bit like "out" but she can also say "sh".
Friday 12th. Hezekiah fell asleep while watching a movie this afternoon. He has had a few loose stools over the last two days - so that viral infection perhaps still hanging about. Nice that he could get a good rest. He hasn't had an afternoon nap for a long time now - so he obviously just needed that bit extra today. With him being dry through the night I know I don't need to worry about him wetting the chair.
