RIGHT: Little Miss playing with Asher this morning. Thankfully Little Miss went to stay with one of her brothers over the weekend while we were away.
BELOW: We were very grateful to be able to borrow a friend's van and trailer for the weekend. The children loved the idea of the seats facing each other - so they didn't even use the 3 back seats. Shadow had her mat between them and we had a good trip there. Another huge thanks was that Shadow was given permission to join us at camp (even though she is not an official assist dog and doesn't legally have "access" to public places yet).
Not too long after we had arrived and unpacked the trailer - Asher had a Tonic Clonic seizure.
Brendon was over with the girls helping them set up their tent, so it was a good opportunity for me to get Shadow to bark to call. She did bark on command, but not loud enough for him to hear (so I gave a quick call). Thankfully it was only around 2 minutes long. I was then forced to just sit and relax with Asher sleeping on my lap, while Brendon and the girls got some tips and help on setting up the tent we had borrowed.
Saturday 6th: By 8am breakfast was done and the kids were already outside having fun. It was lovely having a nice clear start to the day. Hezekiah not worried at all about this high flying fox.
BELOW: The ground still very wet. We should have had gumboots for these wet walks as we went through our socks very quickly and my shoes got very wet.
Shadow loved running for her ball. She was pleased with how much time Asher wanted to spend walking.
Ruth very quickly getting into games of Dutch Blitz.
Thankfully Asher was happy to sleep on the bottom of a bunk bed in our room and fell asleep quickly for her nap time. The video monitor also worked really well and we were able to keep an eye on her sleeping while we were hear watching the children on the slide.
Hezekiah played so nicely with a 9 year old boy who stayed just down from us. He and his brother had their scooters at camp, and his brother allowed Hezekiah to borrow his. They had so much fun scooting around the entire building. We hardly saw Hezekiah as he was always off playing.
This photo of Hezekiah sitting on one of the bigger boys knees was a nice reminder of how good the older boys were. They let the younger ones join in with games and chatted to them and made them feel a part of things. It was wonderful to see.
The next photos were also downloaded form the Church's page. I didn't get many photos of the girls. Most of the time they were off somewhere.
