I only noticed afterwards that I had gotten the box of Shakespeare books in this photo. I ordered them off the last Lucky Book Club order and Hannah is just loving them. I read Twelfth Night to Hannah and Hezekiah this afternoon and they really enjoyed it. They are short enough that I could read the whole one today.
The other game I brought in from the garage yesterday was Rummikub. A nice one for Hezekiah to be able to join in with.
The original plan was that Brendon go with Ruth this afternoon, but as Brendon still has karate during the holidays, I thought it would be a good idea for me to get out the house for a little.
Ruth asked for a lime ice cream Sunday. She takes after her Nana who loves lime too.
An update on the Shakespeare books - Hannah has already read 8 of the 16 books. She is really enjoying them. What a great introduction to such famous stories.
Hezekiah joining Asher in watching a DVD this afternoon. I love how affectionate she was with him.
And this evening Ruth created a game for Asher with the pillows in the lounge. I'm always amazed at how much Asher is willing to do for Ruth.
Friday 20th: Asher often goes to her bed to play with the iPad and her dominoes. With Anastasia sleeping in there now, she has been moved to the lounge. Thankfully she is mostly happy with the change of room.
Ruth and Hannah having some fun outside.
Rachel arrived home this evening from her course at about 8pm. She had dinner with friends from the course before heading home. So we only got a very quick update from her. She left again on Saturday morning for her normal Saturday work and then headed back into town for the last day of the course - working at the AMI stadium during the rugby match. As she was only finishing at 9:30, she stayed with the friends she stayed with during the week as she would not be able to make it home by 10. On Sunday morning she then heads straight to the CEF camp which started for the leaders at 9:30.
Saturday 21st: This morning by 8:30 Brendon had left with these three to go and watch Sherlock Gnomes. I had won a family pass to the movie from The Hits radio station (on a facebook competition).
They stopped at Burger King for lunch on their way home. So a very special day for them. Great to have some nice memories from these holidays.
