Rachel's birthday today but as she only got home late from camp we were glad we celebrated with her before she went away. It was nice that she got to have a long chat with Nana today.
Wednesday 8 April: Ruth tried to have some fun with Hezekiah and Hannah and a masks she made. Unfortunately she ended up scaring Hezekiah.
So she made him a mask, and another for Hannah, and tried to bring some fun into it.
Left: Asher saying "cheese" as soon as she saw the camera out. :-)
Thursday 9 April: I spend ages every day building lego variations for Asher. She will take the "creation", hold it up and say "mm". You HAVE to say "mm" back before she starts meticulously taking each piece off and putting them into the toy box.
Today I taught her to say "wow" rather than "mm". :-)
This evening we also finished off Ruth's hair. We started tightening on Friday evening and only missed Sunday. It was a total of 6 evenings with a total of 5 hours and 15 minutes, with 269 braids tightened.
We really do need to try get into the habit of doing it more often (rather than only twice a year). It will be much quicker and less painful.
For those interested in knowing more about how we actually tighten the braids - I asked Brendon to make this little video.
Friday's lego creation by Ruth.
It was quite appropriate today that Ruth had to write a Haiku poem about rain. We have had lovely rain over the last 24 hours. After such a long dry spell - it is very welcome.
Here is Ruth's Haiku poem:
Rain is pouring down.
Splashing, dripping, sopping wet.
Leaking, soggy boots.
Saturday 11th. Fun with Dad. Asher had so much fun rolling over his head. I always get a little nervous when I see her playing so wildly (with her head moving around so much).
Brendon and Ruth headed out for some time today.
Not too old to climb on the sheep for a photo though. :-)
Ruth asked if she could do Rachel's hair. She had fun trying a few things.
