Monday night our guinea pigs arrived! Tuesday was all about guinea pigs. Wednesday was all about guinea pigs. Any guess what Thursday is going to be about!
Jess, Nomi and Daniel all have new guinea pigs. Well, Daniel’s is older but it is new to him.

Though I’m not a pet person it has been delightful to see the children enjoy these little animals.
Yesterday Nomi and Daniel spent all day making an old dog cage snake proof so the Guinea Pigs could have a home. There are a few gaps we still need to work on so they sleep indoors till that is all set. Daniel made a little ‘home’ for them that sits nicely at the back of the cage. It may be a bit small once they all grow but it is a nice place to start. He did a good job using left over bits of wood.
As you may well guess, our so called routine has gone out the window these last few days but that is what life is all about. The plan is for my children to spend their days purposefully and productively and if their interests take them there then that is all for the best!
