After much discussion and thought, we organized for Asher to spend the day with Rachiel (her teacher aide). Asher has visited at her home a few times and we decided that it would be a much more relaxed and comfortable day for her there. It also meant that Brendon didn't need to spend the day running around after her. And with his energy levels still not back to normal, this was very helpful too.
The photo was taken yesterday when Ruth was having fun putting her jazz tutu on Asher.
Some in the "hobbit hole".
There ended up a game between the two tables - trying to get as many "visitors" as they could.
I didn't get a photo of all the lovely food for lunch, but thought about getting a photo of the food laden desert table. What a treat.
We even had a visit from Santa (thanks David). That was loads of fun and he had a present for everyone!
Thank you so much Susanna for the beautiful bags you made for the girls. You picked the perfect size too as Ruth can fit her Surface in it (like a windows iPad that she uses at school).
Thank you to the Sampson family for a great day. I think back fondly to all the different conversations I had with different people.
And a little clip of Anastasia smiling and "talking". She is doing it more and more but it's hard to get on film.
Hezekiah having a go at pealing a cucumber. We were given a bag full of them by the Sampsons. Thanks for sharing your abundant crop with us again this year.
Brendon worked again today - a full day this time. So it was just a quiet day at home for the rest of us.
Rachel had stayed at the Sampson's last night and she joined a few of the older children who went on a hike.
