Children

Moving House

We are moving house, and shall be a little busy for a couple of weeks.

A little news about us : #2 child broke her elbow and is in a sling for 5 weeks; #3 child had her 9th birthday, saved up for and bought a kids camping kit from Aldi; we are on school holidays; we are moving (gee what a big job); and lots of other fun stuff I can’t think of right now.

Tuesday

Tuesday was a busy day in my normally busy lifestyle. (I really enjoyed the holidays when there was no extra curricular stuff)
The day started with dropping Miranda at card classes late, and then up to the running tracks for some practice with Jade. Erin and Merc joined in and played around. Aunty Jo and her bubs came to visit us while we were at the park/sports oval. The kids played at the park and then went over to feed the ducks with some bread they were given by other people.
On the way to pick up some material, the car started making a strange sound from one of the tyres. It sounded like I had a flat tyre but didn't drive like I had one. I had to pull over 3 times before I found out the culprit (a wad of tape stuck to the front right tyre)
Then it was off to pick up some material for Jade, Erin and Merc.
Late to picking up Miranda and home again.
We were only home for 3.5hrs before heading out for girls brigade, first for Erin's 5pm class, then at 6.30pm for Miranda and Jade's class.
They say they have to start early since they will have 4 yr olds joining and a 8pm finish time is too late for them. At the moment it is only two 5yr olds in the class.
Back home at 9pm and all the kids to bed (even the hyperactive almost 3yr old), a catch up on emails, a quick chat on a reptile chat then off to bed.

Only 3 days till I get my baby snakes.

Carrots

Every child under the age of 6 should not be allowed to draw with anything other then a carrot or a stick of celery. They are a lot easier to scrub off the tiles!

Too Many Choices

I finally worked out why Jade had trouble spending her money today at the bead shop. The choices were simply overwhelming. It was like going into a lolly shop and telling a child to only choose 1 lolly, despite them wanting to taste everything.

At The Beach

Note : Click the photos to enlarge

Yup, we are still in winter (according to the calender) and we headed to the beach. The tide was out so we had a huge flat to walk and explore on. Mercedes was a little scared at first, not sure what to make of the bumpy ground and the small luke warm puddles of water. She was especially scared of the seaweed and would not walk over it, but had to stay as far away from it as possible, which was hard considering it was pretty much everywhere in small clumps. She did survive and enjoyed her long walk out to the waters edge and back.

Erin had a blast and even tried to make sand angles in the hard wet sand. She had fun exploring the little pools, picking up hermit crabs and finding the green slimy worms that were quite plentiful. Erin also had her togs on before we even left home (we had some errands to run before we went to the beach).
