The three older boys had their first experience of going to a camp this weekend at Glenroy. It was only for one night therefore affordable for us. It was a Men’s camp. Mike went too. They seemed to have really enjoyed it .
My dear mother came to help me while they were away. She had a sore back but still managed to hang out washing, help Susanna sew, Prepare lots of veges and tidy up the girls’ bedroom. What a woman!
It was quiet without the big deep voices booming through the house. Lily said “I don’t like Dad going away because he’s taken all my friends.” I think she was missing all the attention that the 3 older boys give her with tickles, cuddles, talks and games.
Daniel was a fabulous right hand man for the two hobbling ladies. He did the digging jobs, lifting jobs and anything else we woman couldn’t manage. Thanks Dan, what a man you are!
Daniel and Tim had a lovely time building a lego table soccer game that really works. I was very impressed.
Jon’s clothes got sorted out. I found the next size pyjamas and trousers. He had a “trying on session” and was very pleased with everything except the thin jeans. “I would like to be able to breathe,” he said.
