Creative Thinking

Thanks for all your commiserations about the car thing. We still have no idea how we are going to work this one out … or exactly how much it will cost us.

In the meantime the kids are having a hard time adjusting to the new walk everywhere idea.

Rebekah had a birthday party to attend this morning. It happened to be on the other side of Newlands up one of the steepest streets in the area. We got not even half way before Jessi started in on ‘I’m tired’, my legs are sore.’ But with lots of positive encouragement and a little bribery we got there. Fortunately one of the other Mums offered to drop Bekah off afterwards, so I didn’t have to make the walk twice.

Of course we didn’t have a birthday present and couldn’t just ‘pop’ out this morning to get one. So we made one.

Rebekah painted the canvas black and then we added the layout. Hopefully the birthday girl has a picture she can add.

I quite like how pretty it turned out. Some of the bits used came in a Rak from Janine (Mummymoo) which arrived on Thursday. Thanks Janine.

Loving the beautiful weather. It is perfectly still outside and the sun feels so warm. DH is mowing the lawns and the kids are spending time outside with him. Life is good.
