Cards, karate, cadets and kittens
We had a good little production line going.
It was nice to see ribbons and stars on some and to start seeing it coming together.
I had my first experiment with Rachel's hair this afternoon for the concert. The curls were not as clear as I want. I want it to be more ringlets. So I"m glad we got the time to try today. She has dress rehearsals on Thursday and Friday.
Photos after karate. The only found out this evening that they had earned their yellow belts. Russel had a yellow belt for Hannah to use (our were at home) so because she was the only one with her yellow belt - she was on the right of their line (they line up in belt order). So that was fun for her too. :-) I had bought a couple of packs of belts, so it was great to have the two longer yellow belts for Brendon and Rachel on hand already.
Tuesday 6th: Rachel and Ruth had an extra ballet practice this afternoon, and then we went straight to St John for their year end prize giving.
Both girls received the badges they have been working on over the last couple of months.
Some of the children were having their IPs at Champion Centre today, so we had the day at home.
Asher has been on her new meds for a week now. She has not been eating that well at breakfast this week, but today it got really bad. She ate just a couple of pieces of her breakfast and then wasn't even hungry at lunch. Eventually at about 2pm she finally got a bit hungry and had a bit of food. I called the pharmacist to chat about the possibility of the medication being a problem. He said although not common, it is possible. He said it may improve over the next week, and then it may get bad again when her dose is increased. If it doesn't improve though, we will need to call her doctor.
(NOTE: Thankfully she did eat well on Thursday, so we are hoping it's just an adjustment with the medication and not a major side effect as it was with a previous med).
RIGHT: Ruth enjoying the kittens this afternoon.
Little Miss was so loud last night with licking them, that we had to move her and the kittens out of our room and into the dinning room.
