Monday 19th: Rachel had her 2nd free driving lesson this morning. We had planned to do things the same as last time, and head to Rangiora for the lesson while Asher was at preschool. Unfortunately Asher's EIE has a major medical emergency in her family and so she is watching grandchildren - so Asher can't go to preschool. I wondered how things would go for the hour while we waited for Rachel, It went really well though. I brought her bag of church toys as well as the laptop with some DVDs. She happily watched Barnie and build puzzles while we waited.
Asher missed preschool on Monday and Wednesday, so it was rather busy for me (and therefore not one photo was taken).
Thursday 22nd: Thankfully a support carer came over on Thursday while allowed me to get some things done, including making a sugar free lemon meringue pie. I have been wanting to try this recipe for a while, so was pleased to finally get it made. It wasn't wonderful at first, but it's grown on me though the week and I have loved having it as a snack option. It's wonderfully filling and is healthy too.
Brendon had actually taken Thursday off due to dizziness and flu symptoms. Thankfully a day of sleep helped tremendously and our plans for today were not affected.
Hannah was pleased we were back in time because her class were sharing some posters they had made about land forms. It was also nice for Brendon to be able to attend one of their assemblies.
I spent most of the afternoon in bed. I think the long morning out on Friday tiered me more than I realized. It's also been a more tiring week with not having those 6 hours with Asher at preschool. It was good to just take time to rest, as she will most likely miss next week's preschool too.
The children get book club order forms twice a term and I finally ordered some books on the last one (as there were a number of $2 books). They arrived this week, so Hezekiah got Rachel reading him "The Three Cattle Dogs Gruff" this afternoon. :-) Just after this photo she had to start again though, as Hannah wanted to be a part of it too.
