Experiments and a special menu
She wasn't too interested in seeing the butterfly she created.
A better picture today of Asher on the computer.
It was rather tricky getting the lunchboxes finished and lunch started without Rachel home (she works from early on Thursday morning). There was no time left for the children to walk to school, so we were thankful when Asher woke up a bit and I could take them in the car.
I was pleased it happened today and not yesterday. All the photos from her birthday cake yesterday are on a separate post. :-)
Dancing only starts up next week, so Ruth had time this afternoon to do some of her Guiding things. This was creating fog.
And then creating currents with the heat from a candle (it was supposed to be from a lamp - but we don't have one - so this tealight cover worked really well to keep it a safe activity).
On Thursday Ruth has Technology. She is doing cooking this term and today they made biscuits. As they are not gluten free she could not enjoy them, but she did enjoy decorating them for her teacher and two friends.
Asher at another 1 minute Tonic Clonic at 7pm. Thankfully she had a good nights sleep afterwards.
I showed the girls how to play Around the Clock Solitaire and they have been enjoying that in the evenings. I remember playing it at my grandmothers when I visited her.
Friday 10th: Ruth had created this "volcano" out of fondant when we made the flowers for Asher's cake. She finally got to make her volcano erupt today.
Not the best of photos - but it did work.
Saturday 11th: Hezekiah helping in the garden.
It was perhaps not the best time to start a "new" diet for Ruth, with her needing all different food. Thankfully we got so much done today (including a chickpea bread) and so at least I know she is sorted for the week ahead.
And then on Sunday afternoon we headed into town to take Asher and I to the hospital. I have written a separate post with all that info. I just wished I had taken a photo of Hezekiah playing with Toby - Asher's main nurse for this week. They had so much fun and Hezekiah was especially pleased with Toby's Star Wars top. :-)
I was so pleased that we could do the drop off this afternoon with the whole family. It helped that the children could all see where we were and it was a help having them around so I could unpack a bit too.
