April 2013

According to my photo library, apart from the fantastic trip out to Napp Springs, it would seem that April was a very quiet month. I do remember going to the ANZAC day dawn service as well as a few other similar events but once again I have no photos or if I do, they have my wife in them and she would kill me if I ever posted a photo of her online! So once again you are stuck with lots of photos of my kids!

Before I post them though I want to share a short video with you. It was meant to go in the March blog but I forgot. I have mentioned before that Kununurra has quite an active homeschooling community and one of the many events that they hold is an good old fashioned annual concert. Every kid is invited to put on some kind of a show and it is a wonderful evening watching the many varied types of performances. Although my kids claim to be very shy, they really aren’t and I thought they did great putting on two different skits. Here is the 2nd half of one of them. You may have to listen carefully to hear what they are saying.

And now onto a selection of photos from the month of April.

Jacob got a new train set which he was very excited about. So was Mum and Dad as it kept him occupied for hours!

With the rains arriving at last the temperatures dropped from an awful 40 degrees + to a more manageable 33 - 37 which meant more time outside and in the garden. Jacob loved to potter with his Mum outside whenever he could. Take a look at that mop of hair! That was soon to be rectified.

We distracted him with his favourite TV show, Peppa Pig and Mum got to work.

During April we organised with my nieces to come for a sleep over, one at a time. Here is Elise having her turn.

Somehow my kids suddenly got into Tin Tin. They loved them and read the Library dry of the entire collection in just a few months.

With school back in full swing Marisah made huge improvements with her reading. When she finished the programme I was working with her on and she was able to pick up a basic book and read it without help we had a little 'I can read' celebration at a local cafe. Marisah is so blasé about these type of achievements that I think her big sister Ariya was more excited about her certificate then she was!

From little things, big things grow and the kids were all excited to show me this 'shy frog' that they had found.

And to finish off the month of April here is Jacob acting the fool with his partner in crime, Marisah.
