Pirate Dress Up Day

For a fundraiser at school the kids had to dress like a pirate. Isla put together her whole outfit. I think she did really well! Abel had a little more help with his but I was amazed he still had it all when he came home!IMG_20171129_075713 IMG_20171129_075603 IMG_20171129_075541

Little River

On Monday we went on a little day trip over to Little River to pick up some new chickens. Eben was very excited to get new chickens. We also went for a little bush walk while we were there. Eben would complain his legs were tired and then go running off up the hill!

Isla’s Birthday

Isla had her birthday on Saturday. She had her friend Ashley over for a camping sleep over. They had a great time, cooking on their hobo stoves, sleeping in the tent and lots of giggling! In the morning the kids made ‘perfumes’ from garden ingredients and then sold them to us. Isla decorated her cake this year. IMG_20171126_080340 (1) IMG_20171125_210047 IMG_20171125_194404 (1) IMG_20171125_192036 IMG_20171125_174122 (1) IMG_20171125_174039

Abel’s Birthday

Abel turned 7 last week. He woke up very happy and excited. His day started with presents and Isla made him bacon and eggs for breakfast (he gave them 10/10 and Isla has been elevated to ‘best cook in the house’) and it just went up from there! We went to the market in Lincoln and out for lunch. Abel rated his day the best day ever! He celebrated his birthday this weekend with an outing with three friends from school. Paul and Dad took four seven year olds into town to laser strike and our for a pizza dinner. They had a great time, both Paul and Dad commented on how noisy four excited boys are!
