So here we go, another week that was and it has been cold and windy – really windy and really cold.
Windy enough for a kite and this big boy can not resist a moment with a kite… or his little brother…
And no missing out on generalized rock climbing…
And out for lunch – oh Yum!!!
Did I say Yum!!!
There was lots of playing:
And hotels and tennis matches:
And frozen bananas:
And glorious arting:
And snipping, should I say hacking…
And Nasturtium tea… I passed!
And heaps of visitors… for the second week running…
And bowls of white chocolate:
And if you write a post on sleep deprivation then you can be sure that this will happen:
Seriously – OUT!!!
And an entire afternoon of clay (and I am especially not showing you what they made),
That went on long into the night!!!
And wire cutting and the little contribution on my keyboard – endless tiny baskets!!!
And one very kind gentle-person has decided that his mother needs a break and leaves the kitchen: swept, wiped, and sparkling, dishes done and packed away and the gentle buzz of the dishwasher. Every night. It is very hard not to get used to this!!!
And our books of the week: Well, I grew up on Jeanne-Marie and we have been reading them at bed-time this week, and everybody loves Jeanne Marie and her little sheep, Patapon, and her little duck, Madelon.
And this is what the Hoods got up to:
Hood #1: Got a “Little Big Planet T-shirt and has now “arrived!!!” Now if he could just figure out how exactly to get his hands on a real live sack-man!!!
Hood #2: Well there were acrobatics of one kind and another.
Hood #3: There was chilling in a sunny spot…
And an awful lot of running about to keep warm!!!
Hood #4: Should I say anything? I think not…
Hood #5: And hiding in trees:
Well not actually hiding:
Hood #6: And this little person wrote her own music (don’t you love it with all the bright colors) and then proceeded to play it.
I am not one to quash exuberance but earth shattering doesn’t begin to describe it, no matter how peaceful it looks!!!
Hood #7: Could not contain her art project, she literally lifted off the table with joy.
Hood #8: Decided he is big enough to face the climbing wall…
Which may be a bit ambitious when he is only as tall as the coffee table.
That’s us!!! Have a fun weekend!!!
