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 #7 mastered the sit, and she sat and she sat and she sat.
And to top it all we did some whale watching.
