Saturday 4th October. Ruth hard at work with her loom bands. She has enjoyed making these grips for pencils (or loom band tools).
She has mentioned making some to sell on Trade Me, but we haven't gotten around to that yet.
Below: Busy in the kitchen with her weekly food order.
Sunday 5th October. Hezekiah just loved "helping" in the kitchen after church today. Unfortunately our silly "new" camera won't allow you to "force flash" and so I can't blame Ruth for not managing to get a nice photo. I had to pump loads of light into this one to see his face. Such a special memory though as he just had so much fun and felt like such a big helper.
Ruth was rather pleased that Rachel was away because it meant she could get to work the Vitamix. I realized it was time to give her some lessons and she did a great job.
Rachel is a leader on a Christian camp this week (Sunday till Friday) and then will be back home on Saturday.
Tuesday 7th saw a very wet start to the day. Hezekiah quickly headed out to explore.
It was obviously warm enough for him too - despite all the ice about.
Asher enjoys eating with a proper fork now. She will even put the food onto her table and then pick it up with the fork. Here she is enjoying mushrooms and egg for lunch.
Wednesday 8th: Enjoying a chicken bone to chew on.
And feeling very "grown up" on
Hezekiah's chair. I don't think it will be too long before she moves onto one of these chairs.
Enjoying some music after dinner. Asher really does love the harmonica. As well as beanies. :-) Such a cutie.
I also look forward to more contact with Emma now that we have properly met.
Hezekiah and Asher enjoyed the lambs that were close to the house.
Nice and friendly.
