Today I talked to the kids about lifting their productivity levels.  I encouraged them that their free time needed to be spent on focused and purposeful activity.  I am always surprised at the things the kids do when movie/dvd time is reduced and the goal of productivity is put in front of them.

 

Today Nomi spent extra time on her Bamboo mat (drawing with a mouse).  It is a whole new art form to draw on the computer and she is improving all the time.   Nomi also sat down and got a robotic vacuum cleaner started for me.  It has been sitting in my cupboard for ages, thinking it needed programming – it didn’t!  So we’ll see how that works in the next day or two.  Imagine not having to push a vacuum cleaner – just what I need as we head into the Wet Season and all its bugs!

 

Daniel also spent some time on the computer but for him it was drawing a  treasure map using Microsoft Word and the autoshapes, lines, colour etc.  Daniel has also started a stitchery on plastic canvas of his own design.

 

Jessica spent time working on a project she’s got happening in organising a preschool activity in a bag swap with ladies in the community.

 

Joshua went to his first ‘farmers meeting’ representing his dad – as Pete couldn’t make it.  I think the ‘expert’ was a little disconcerted in seeing a kid there but Josh was soon introduced as a participant.  It is great having such a supportive community – none of the farmers who knew us, or Josh were the least surprised to see him there.  Though he assures everyone he has no intention of being a farmer (or a Vet!!)


We have been watching too many dvd’s of late (especially over lunch time and things just drag on after that) and since I cut that out today, there were times the younger two struggled to keep their focus on other projects but it was worth it in the end.
