The Week That Was – 10

September 6th, 2008 · 2 Comments

We decided to welcome spring with some flowery spring streamers, smoothies and cookies.

Spring wasn’t very welcoming to us! Just look at what the storm did to the concrete path beside the beach – concrete and been there my entire life… well needs a bit of repair, I dare say.

We read some books:

And watched some great naval event from our deck – with submarines and ships and helicopters and more helicopters and planes flying by, later we discovered that President Mbeki had visited Simonstown – the next town down the coast from ours.

The entire focus of Hood #1’s week was his first music exam. But he also managed to help his little brother get his school done, research broccoli in the world book and did a whole lot of Zoobing, in the name of Algebra.

Hood #2 decided to boycott school and was caught lurking under his bed – caught I tell you!

Hood #3 read and read, from dawn till dusk… and told me that she has got so good at reading she could read 100 pages a day – hmmm a little bit optimistic, but that day will come!

Hood #4 did not stop talking. Actually he never stops talking! Remember he is my champion player and can dream and dream, not to mention very polite. I don’t know why he always says please and thank -you – he just has it! So here are some gems:

  • Could I please have the duvets? I need all of them. I am building the North Pole and I need them to be the icy waters.
  • If you want to loose weight you should cut off your tummy then you will most likely die but you will be thin.
  • If this stick had a piece of paper on the end then it would be an umbrealla and we could cross the wild sea.
  • When I grow up I want to be a scientist. Aaahhh – sigh of contentment, a man after my own heart – my pre-mothering profession. I would love to stand next to road works and wave signs all-day. Ummmmm – that wasn’t quite what I had in mind.

Hood #5 read some cook books, gearing up for the best day of his short life… coming to this blog next Monday.

Hood #6 gobbled some strawberries and otherwise flew under the radar… hmmm she has no hair left to chop and we ran out of scrap paper.

Hood #7 mastered the sit, and she sat and she sat and she sat.

And to top it all we did some whale watching.
