I am taking a blogging/ social media break right now as we enjoy school holidays and prepare for some adventures at and away from home. Please email me, call me or come and visit!
We all loved the movie so much. So great for all ages. Coops could name all the mini figures and characters after watching YouTube for the last few months! The kids got some special books that they read every night and learn even more about how the movie was made and all the characters that featured in the movie.
Thanks again Jen for thinkng of my kids, they have not stopped talking about it.
We were both much better for this time in the sunshine.
This little girl makes my heart swell. I look at her everyday and think how lucky I am to have her in my life. To be part of the team that guides her to be the best she can be. I watch her take on tasks with enthusiasm and ease and wonder if she knows how lucky she really is. I listen to her read at night, remembering words when only seeing them a few times. I watch her put pen to paper, sounding out words, writing stories, holding her pen so effortlessly that the letters form so beautifully. Then I think how lucky I am to have my precious first born son as without him I would have never stopped, taken in and seen the little things that Pepper shows me each and every day.
She received a class award this week for magnificent manners and always saying please and thank you.
We started the week like this! Exhausted and it was only Monday.
These boys are good friends right now. There is a 7 year age gap and they have a very different relationship than the one they both share with Pepper. Woody understands everything Cooper says now which makes things much much easier. Prior to this there was a lot of yelling and hitting as Woody thought Cooper was yelling at him but he was just talking. I love watching both Woody and Pepper talk with Coop as sometimes it's like being bilingual.
We spent the public holiday at our beach in the waves.
What a week!
On Sunday we spent the day at Cruden Farm.( Murdoch family) They held a fundraiser family day to support the MCRI. ( Murdoch children's research institute) . Cooper has been part of a study through the MCRI to help control his dystonic movements. I actually did work experience back in my youth there too, studying genes. I remember trying to put the set of chromosomes together just seeing the science rather than the bigger picture of real families needing support and cures.
We went along to support the day and it was fantastic.
It was one of those days when I kept being amazed by Cooper. He tried so many new things now that his nine year old body seems stronger, more controlled. I am also so cautious of him attempting things that require so much body control but with support he had a fantastic time.
It helps when you have your sister and number one supporter right there next you too xxx
