I started with Ruth's hair the other day, so I'm trying to get a bit done every night. This evening I got some done while they played cards.
The children decided that we should all sit on the same chair this evening for prayer time. Vanille offered to take a photo as the kids thought this was so much fun. :-)
David and Hezekiah played so nicely together and they were rather upset when he had to leave with his mum just before lunch. The older girls stayed a bit longer, joined us for lunch and then I dropped them off on our way to town in the afternoon.
Asher had a great time playing and then decided to run up and down the corridor again (she did this last time we were here too). She ran so many times that I lost count.
Eventually she was even tired and so she headed back to Thomas the Train. It's opened in the back and she would get in and out and have so much fun. At one point she was holding onto the frame and leaning in, when a seizure hit. It was thankfully only a 1 minute Tonic Clonic, but with it happening at that exact moment, she had a nasty fall onto the wooden frame. So she had a bleeding nose and mouth. Thankfully the recovery position that I had put her in allowed all the blood to flow out and so she didn't choke at all. I was so thankful that the bleeding stopped so quickly (as well as the seizure).
We left home just after 1:30 and we only left the hospital at 4:30. With the extra afternoon traffic and the fact that we had a couple of stops to make on the way home, it was nice to be able to treat Ruth to an ice cream and Asher and I had some hot chips. That ended up being Asher's dinner as we only got home after 7pm. It will be a very memorable birthday for sure. :-)
Lunch on the deck for the kids (as the dinning room table was still loaded from stuff from the cupboards.) Joshua has just turned 6 but it sounds like he will stay in Whero class till the end of the year. I really do hope this is the case as Hezekiah is so looking forward to starting school in October so that he can be with Joshua. So it will be nice if they can at least have a couple of months together.
