We attended our third swimming carnival yesterday. Koala was magnificent as a timekeeper. I was so proud of our little girls. Jelly Bean managed to swim 25m of both backstroke and freestyle:) Princess competed in all four strokes; backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle and then she competed in the medley! All four again in a row! Our three boys swam their hardest, did their best and most importantly were good Sportsmen. As a lovely bonus all three won their Age Championships!!
Our Border Collie, Elowyn visited the Vet’s today requiring ear surgery.
PC went to collect her and was highly amused to be greeted at reception with, “Here’s Ellie’s Dad”
I’m re-reading “The Family Nobody Wanted by Helen Doss.” Written in the 1950s Helen and her husband adopted 12 children of ‘mixed race.’ So humorous and inspiring.
I received a black and white laser printer from PC for my birthday:)
We are all so impressed with the speed, cost great too. Only 2c a page!
I have lots of thoughts swirling through my head at present; theology, socialization and relationships are all clamouring for reflection and prayer.
I am drowning in clutter, I really, really am. However I know it would be more efficient if I wait until the cladding is completed in a few weeks and we have a massive re-organisation. But perhaps I’m wrong, perhaps I should tackle the problem now. What do you think?
I’m reflecting how special relationships with your teenage daughters can be:)
Mine is a delight.
