The great thing about a couple of folks under the weather is that I was able to get quite a lot done – hehhe!!! All those piles of things that accumulate are back in order – just one pile at a time.
And our school stuff that was doing it’s typical: “I am going to explode and nobody is ever going to find anything again party trick” is now back under some sort of control… one stack at a time, one shelf at a time, one drawer at a time… one little tiny bit at a time. You will be amazed at just how much you can get done!!!
Otherwise it was Prize Giving Week at Music School and my musicians bowled me over and gathered up a little stack of awards!!! No one was more surprised than I was!!! Funny thing is, last year after prize giving they both decided that they would like an Excellence Award… and I said well if you practice everyday it will have happen… Anyway they were thrilled!!!
Meanwhile there goes our vehicle… and a hideous silence followed as the Hoods watched their transport vanish away on a truck… But good news!!! After days of silence they finally discovered that our local gas station put diesel instead of petrol into the tank. Let me tell you folks this is not a good idea!!! Not good at all!!! Anyway a week later and our car is back. I complained to the gas station and they filled our tank with petrol as compensation… Well I will tell you a secret I don’t think we have ever filled our tank petrol before!!!
This little guy keeps coming in the kitchen – every time we open the window…
And this was one of the sweet contributions found alongside my laptop this week!!!
And I just love this knight!!!
We are reading this book together and totally loving it:
This is what the Hoods all got up to:
Hood #1: He is very busy making wire people – it’s the latest thing!!!
Hood #2: Construction…or destruction, certainly heaps of dismantling, depending on how you look at it!!!
Hood #6: Was one of the main players in the “nature club”… which involved lots of collecting and lots of examining…
Hood #7: Is on a lettuce binge!!! And gets very excited when she discovers a snail!!!
Hood #8: Is into sorting and organizing, another child that like things just so. I have no idea where they get this from!!!
And here he is playing “the citris game” playing along nicely, however you play…
Just look at that innocent face, he is sitting on them to make sure he gets to keep them!!!
That’s us!!! Have a great week!!!
