This and that through the week
And he wants to be a part of every bit of the job. I am so thankful for Brendon's patience with getting the children involved like this. It would be much quicker to just do it all himself but he is spending the time teaching Hezekiah how to be a good worker. And yes - it starts well before a child is even 2 years old. What special memories too.
I am not sure who was more pleased to get the Zumba DVDs out again (after well over 2 years of no use). Ruth was so enjoying it with me and was disappointed today that I could not do it. She made me this sweet card as she knew I was not feeling well.
I had the start of Mastitis and the accompanying fever and body ache were really unpleasant. Thankfully I managed to get it sorted really quickly and just had the painful blocked area to deal with for a day or so afterwards.
You can see he has his own spoon ready in his left hand. As soon as he sees that food is on the go or almost ready he opens the draw and gets his spoon and fork out. This little boy sure does LOVE his food. I think I might need to get him helping Hannah set the table as he loves getting things out before dinner is quite ready. :-)
The photo makes me think of the one Brendon took in 2008 when Hannah was just 3 months old. Ruth was a month short of 2 years old.
Wed 24 April: Curry and rice for dinner tonight and the girls were thrilled with the way I placed everyone's slices of banana.
Thursday 25 April: Anzac day today but unfortunately Brendon was working the whole morning. Noortje asked if the girls would like to go and do the run / walk with her in Waikari. I was concerned that it would be too far for Hannah but good practice for Ruth who is looking forward to the upcoming cross country. Ruth ended up walking with Noortje rather than running - but had a fun time out.
Rachel was not really interested in going as she had a fun time with some girls from the neighbourhood (2 here because it's holidays). I did not get many photos but they spent MANY hours together through the 2 weeks.
Trying to get those lovely smiles on camera. Not quite capturing it though.
