So (more for my benefit than anything else) this is what else we have been up to over the past few months...
Ive crocheted a couple of dishcloths and flowers. I turned one flower into a clip for Jazz, but still haven't sewn the ends in the dishcloths so I can use them!
Had a few visits to the beach - totally exhausted three of the kids at least! Nathan is just not a real sleeper in the car.
I took this old dolls house which was on its way from Jodes house to a garage sale...
...with a few repairs and fresh coats of paint, it became Jacintas 2nd birthday present.
It is a real struggle to get Isaac to have a rest during the day now - but some days he really needs it. Sometimes, if he is really tired and grumpy, he will agree to curl up on my bed with me, and he falls asleep in minutes.
The aprons that I made and blogged about a while back were packaged up in a mixing bowl, with lots of other goodies and given to Jess and Luke for their birthdays. They loved them!
We had some frogs living in the water feature under the pergola for a while. The kids loved watching them.
Tea parties are a favourite game of Jazz & Isaacs - especially when there is real water to pour and drink.
I'm loving seeing Isaac's imaginative play bloom now he is at kindy - and seeing his little pink shadow soaking in every little move he makes!
Jazz & I visited Alison the other day. We came home with a delicious basket of goodies from their garden. There is nothing quite like the smell and taste of freshly picked, home grown veggies. The small of freshly picked carrots always reminds me of helping my Grandpa in the massive veggie garden he had when we were kids.
Nathans is in the yellow team for sports day - try finding something yellow to wear in Miss pinks wardrobe. I ended up re -fashioning two bodysuits into this little number for her. The yellow tie top was a size 000 bodysuit and the striped one a size 1. I just chopped the bottom off and presto new yellow supporters outfit for the day!
