Walks, games and a dusting of snow
I saw them with plants and creating things but found out later that it was a " Mini Masterchef" competition. :-)
Not knowing how wet the afternoon would be, Brendon took the 4 younger children for another walk.
This time they had success with finding the geocache they were after.
While they were out, I was treated to a facial and a back massage. I had organized for Brendon to have a back massage on Monday afternoon, and it was so good that he then suggested I get a session too. We got a discount for being "locals" (living in the Hurunui District) and were treated to longer sessions that planed. It was a real treat for us both.
This afternoon there was finally a game of "Bang" played. Hezekiah wanted to play Chinese Checkers with Dad, so Dad played both games at once (which I watched Asher). There was so much laughing and fun. Special times.
Brendon again took them to a different section of the dog walks.
Hezekiah was on the search for someone to play Chinese Checkers this afternoon and Rachel offered.
Ruth was very busy today with her hair. She managed to get 7 undone. That makes the total 25 this week. She has done so well. I had 15 to braid after her shower this afternoon. There are hardly any left to be done now (we only found 2 when we had a look).
This evening Ruth asked Hannah if she would do her dishes for her, and then Ruth would give her a "facial". :-)
We have had a special time in Hanmer Springs these last 10 days. Tomorrow morning will be time to pack up and head back home. The carpets are going in tomorrow and so we plan to only get back after lunch. The school children will go home with friends in the afternoon so that Brendon and Rachel have Tuesday to move things back into the house.
