All about a tooth

On Tuesday Elijah came running into the house in a panic.  "Mum, MUM!  I was eating my apple and look!"

His very first loose tooth!  I composed myself long enough to explain that it was perfectly normal before taking the photo, then chuckled quietly to myself after he had returned to the backyard.  ;)

And then, the very next day:

He is now excitedly anticipating the growth of his very first 'adult' tooth, "Just like yours Mummy!"

Only by His grace,

Daylight savings

...starts tonight!  Remember to turn your clocks forward an hour.  Just thought I'd let you know. ;)

Since Abi's hospital stay, we have been busy trying to get back on track with everything.  The children have been helping too.  And as an added bonus, it's all been very educational!

This is Bethany's favourite task at the moment

Won't be long before Naomi's cooking dinner all on her own!

Baking muffins

 Abigail helped

 He helped stack that before he climbed it

He doesn't like the job, but he gets it done

Matching socks and colours too

It's actually dry! ;)

But work needs to be balanced with play, right?

We went to see the ducks and their babies at the Botanic Gardens

"Quack, quack!"

Went exploring in the jungle (aka, the backyard)...

Played frisbee on the town green

Won some hearts
Climbed trees

Watched clouds
And just because I have it handy, here is a picture of the children after navigating their way through the maze last time we visited Lake Pertobe.

Aren't they a cute bunch?
