The boys came from the learning room to show me these cute little 'magnetix' things they had made....
Stass was doing her Spanish lesson out in the family room today and learnt a whole new set of words...
I got Liji to choose his favourite print and then we propped up the book on the lounge and each sat down at the table facing it with oil pastels (aka crayons) and all drew our own interpretation of the image on some thick white cardstock. Here is Stassi's take on Vincent Van Gogh's 'Seascape at Saint-Maries' 1888 (which is pictured to the right in the book). She did a great job - she's even considered the horizon and the size of the boats - go Stass! and the boys really enjoyed this too :)
And 'pleeeeeeeeeease mum take a photo of us all on the lounge'...so here are my 3 monkeys...
And little monkey Ethi boo boo had a 'meeting' with the corner of the toy box on the weekend as he excitedly ran into his room with his cousin. This is after 5 days and much healing. Praise God it was NO closer to his eye...
And when Brett and I went to have a cuppa and some sticky date pudding yesterday, there was a little vintage emporium attached and i found these sweet rusted old scales for $6 which now happily stand on my kitchen bench next to my basket of eggs :)
5 things i am thankful for today:
1. Brett doing dinner
2. Hebrews chapter 11
3. Skyping for the first time with the beautiful Gayle Smith :)
4. Lovely wet weather
5. A compassionate doctor :)
More another time,
