friday so soon
Usually I keep a log during the week of my favorite finds on the web that I think you'll like too, but this week I've spent most of my time nurturing River back to good health as he had infection in not one but both of his ears! It's been a week of broken sleep, two visits to the doctor and one to the chiropractor.
I have to say I've enjoyed having him home. Endless days with your children really are a fleeting season. Once they start school, weekends come and go oh so quickly.
The first couple of days this week River spent quietly enduring the kind of pain that only ear ache can bring. When that was over, he wanted to be creative. 'Can you teach me to sew mum?' We made a cushion. 'Can we print the book I've written? I want to phone nana and Pepe and see if they'd like to buy a copy?' Self- published at seven I love it. 'I know! We can make puppets out of these pom poms and pipe cleaners and Sol and I can put on a puppet show!' We painted the kitchen cupboards turquoise and tangerine. 'Well they don't blend in anymore' was Pete's remark. A thank you letter was written and posted and some maths work weaved in as River helped his dad with measuring up spaces with our northern new south wales dream house in mind. More about that soon.
So here's a short list and a big happy weekend wish to each of you. Thanks for visiting me here.
Love the sound of Nourishing Quarter in Sydney's Surry Hills
A great blog find - Our Nourishing Roots - anyone who promotes 'connection to the Earth through traditional foods' and uses the words 'anti-diet' has my undivided attention
I've been hooked over at Blue Bird Baby ever since reading this post via Jodi
Thinking of homeschooling? Read Vanessa's heartfelt post about her family's big decision to do just that.
What are you up to this weekend?
