Saturday R had Archeology club where she learned all about bones. As I’ve done the past few months I spent the duration of her club having a little one to one with one of the other children. It was little S’s turn so we went for a drink and a cake at a cafe. Little S needed some new shoes so we went to Clark’s to get her feet measured. The only shoes she wanted to get were blue “raar” (aka dinosaur) shoes like her big brother’s. Thankfully they had them in her size. Sunday we spent the afternoon at Nanny and Granddad’s house and went to the park.
Monday we made the most out of having a car and went grocery shopping. The children all helped find items from the list, look for special offers and chose meals for the week ahead. After shopping we went to Granma’s house for and a play. We played board games together and spent time chatting to Granma. From Granma’s we went to S’s speech therapy. S is doing really well and her speech is certainly clearer. S read Little S a bedtime story by herself.
Tuesday we spent the morning in the garden, played with the guinea pigs and took the dog for a walk. Despite the glorious sunshine when left the house, we managed to get caught a hail storm and had to take shelter at the skate park. (Thankfully we had taken snacks) We spent the rest of the afternoon in the garden and playing with friends and icing biscuits.
Today S made pancakes for breakfast, getting out all the ingredients and measuring them out (without a recipe) by herself. After a clean up we did some painting together.
We took the dog for a walk, managing to avoid the frequent and brief April showers and then came home for lunch. The children played whilst I did a bit of housework then S helped make tacos for dinner and R made some gingerbread men.
Although we are car less this week we are keeping busy.
