Run, braid, play and sing
Thankfully it was dry, but it was very cold It was 3 degrees when I arrived and when I left at 11:30 it was only 4 degrees.
What a beautiful spot to have the race. Ruth was thankful that it was not as hilly as her school race. I wouldn't describe it as flat, but perhaps in comparison it seemed flat.
And a sprinting finish. She came in 9 out of 10. Good effort Ruth. I'm sure if you start practicing through the summer you will do a lot better.
Friday 1 June. Rachel left early this morning for her introductory hair dressing course again (before 7am). They were assessed on their braids. She had never done a fish tail braid before, so it was good to get the extra practice. Her other braids were good enough on the first day.
Full school assembly today and Hannah's group got to share their bits about camp to the whole school.
Ruth enjoying working out some songs on the guitar this evening. The children know so many of the songs from The Greatest Showman that we decided to buy a copy so that we could all watch the movie through. So they have been singing a lot of the songs lately. I really enjoy listening to them. Asher and Anastasia enjoyed it this evening too.
Two guys from work helped Brendon to pick up a piano that we were given this evening. Brendon bought fish and chips on the way home to at least feed them as thanks. Anastasia decided she wanted to try a chip too.
What a wonderful blessing to be given a piano. Although Hannah's bedroom has more space, we only just managed to get it through the kitchen into the hall. So it ended up having to just go straight down and into Hezekiah's room. My sewing cabinet was in this spot - so it's moved next door to Hannah now. Ruth didn't hesitate to give it a try and it sounds quite good. It has two keys that stick and would obviously improve with a good tune. But for now, I'm really impressed with the sound and very thankful.
Saturday 2nd: Ruth took Asher down to play today. I'm sure Asher will enjoy the piano a lot too.
Cuddles with Ruth after her netball.
With Rachel away from early Friday morning till late on Saturday evening, today was the first time to get the monthly children photo. And nice to have it on a weekend and a change from school clothes.
This one was on my phone and so a bit fuzzy unfortunately. Sweet smiles though.
Monday 4th: A public holiday today, so no need to rush getting dressed. A lovely one of Hezekiah and Anastasia at 8am.
Ruth took the day off school to catch up on some of her Guiding things. This was one activity she needed to do.
