Saturday was my dad’s birthday. The original plan was to have a picnic but the weather was too uncertain, although it did actually turn out quite hot. Tabitha insisted on dressing up for the occasion in her bridesmaid dress and then spent the afternoon playing football, climbing on rocks and hunting for minibeasts.
We’ve had a lot of rainy days recently. The children have been building some great structures with our fort kit and playsilks, but it falls apart rather easily which Aaron has found very frustrating.
I am sick to death of Aaron and Tabitha arguing and fighting at the moment, so when I heard someone mention a four week Bible study about sibling relationships called My Brother’s Keeper I decided to go ahead and buy it, even though I rarely buy things on impulse anymore. The junior version is $12 (about £8.11 through Paypal) but I bought it as part of the Mom Bundle #2 from Build Your Bundle, which is also $12 but includes some other resources as well.
This morning Aaron asked to make potions so I gave them some stuff from the kitchen and they had a great time mixing, smelling and making things fizz.
Pixel thought it was all very interesting and kept coming over to have a look!
Aaron has been going around telling people lots of facts about the human body (mostly from the Magic Schoolbus) so I decided it would be a good time to start our God’s Design for Life: The Human Body book. The first lesson involved drawing a self-portrait and Aaron was really pleased with his. I think we’ll frame it and put it up somewhere. He told me that he wants to be an artist when he grows up.
