Swimming, new meds and fundraising
Asher woke in the night sounding like she might vomit. It happened again this morning and I was following her around with a bucket for a little while. I started wondering if it was indeed a stomach bug that Hezekiah had on the weekend. She didn't get sick though and had such a low energy day that I went to check side effects of her new drug.
I asked Kerry if she would take some photos at the swimming for me and she sent me so many lovely ones.
Hezekiah has just taken to swimming and is doing so well. He is my first child to be doing so well at just 6. Such a contrast to growing up in South Africa with a swimming pool in our garden. I'm sure all 5 of us kids were swimming by the time we were 3 or 4. We just had so many months of swimming and were in the pool every day.
Kerry took so many photos that I felt like I was there watching them. Thank you so much Kerry. It was a real blessing.
Hannah getting ready for her freestyle race.
Hannah has improved with her swimming so much over the last month. It's been wonderful to watch.
This afternoon Brendon was cutting the grass and Asher always loves watching him. She was so tired though, so I encouraged her to sit down and she rested her head on the teddy while watching. She didn't sleep today, but just rested quite a bit. It's encouraging to see improvement every day. Her body is getting used to the new meds and I'm sure it won't be long before she is back to her normal energy levels.
Ruth has a week long Wellington trip coming up later in the year and the children have been encouraged to do fundraising for it. So Ruth got started in making some jewellery to sell.
The plan now is to hopefully get a few more of the children in the school making jewellery that they can sell and fundraise together.
These are Ruth's first two creations.
It's going to be fun seeing all the creations that come out of this box over the next few months.
She still remembers the wonderfully successful sweet peas I had over a decade ago. It will be lovely if we can get some success here too.
