2018 A&P Show
Ruth had been up helping with her class's fundraiser from 6:45am till 8. She came home to get some last entries which we had to drop off before 9.
Rachel's friend Bonnie came to spend the day with Rachel and so they all headed up before 10am. The older girls said they would watch Hezekiah and help him with getting on the rides that he wanted to go on.
Hannah and her two friends also headed up at 10 and spent the morning together. Ruth also found her friends to spend the morning with.
Hannah enjoyed a lot of rides with her friends in the morning.
Ruth had the most money saved, but didn't spend all the money she took (which we were impressed with).
This was a huge highlight and was so much fun.
Around this time Hannah's friend's mum called me to let me know they were leaving. So we could ask her to send Hannah over to the bikes to have some fun with us too.
Hezekiah on this funny one which was steered with the pole in the middle.
It was nice that the children just teamed up to enjoy the bikes together. Even if they didn't know each other that well.
Hannah had enough money to have another ride.
With Asher having a KiwiAble card (showing that she needs a support person with her) Brendon didn't have to pay for his ticket. So I treated Hezekiah and paid for him to have another go.
And Asher absolutely LOVED it.
So I was really pleased we made the effort to go up together and get Asher on the ride. I'm sure she will remember next year and make a bee line for it.
Here the local policeman was showing her how to dismantle and put together a gun.
Last year they had a rifle to do, so it was nice to get to do something different again.
They also had to take a creative selfie (that was hard for me to take a photo of). Rachel's creative idea was to take a selfie on her own phone and then hold the phone next to her in the same spot and take another selfie with their phone. A selfie of a selfie. I thought it was very clever.
Thanks Bonnie for coming to join us for the day. It was a fun filled day.
All the art and awards left for their own blog posts. :-)
