Snippets from our week

The week has been a busy, different kind of week. I still have my client here and so there have been many trips up and down to the hospital. I am pleased to say the patient is doing well after his surgery on Tuesday. In between, we have kept up with school work even though the hours may have been a bit odd. Z is still battling with some pain at night and so his days have been slower than usual.

J and I had a good time doing some science experiments this week and he enjoyed one in particular. He had to make "plastic rock" from cornflour and water. It is solid when you pick it up and becomes liquid as you release it. I wish I could find the photo of him at about age 3 covered in the very same mixture that I made for him then.This time he did not cover himself in the mixture but never the less he enjoyed the experiment!

Today we decided to join some fellow home school families on the monthly ice skating outing.We have not been in over a year and I felt the need to take some time out with the children and enjoy the outing. Z even managed the outing and had a great time!

K has spent the better part of the last 3 days with Aunty T who kindly agreed to oversee her making of a cake for J's 15th birthday. K designed the cake herself and did most of the work too. Tonight she came home covered in icing after they had fun having a "food fight" with the left over mixtures! The whole house smelled like a cake!

I will post the finished cake as soon as I can. I know it will be good!
