I’ve already blogged that this last week didn’t happen like it was planned to but the Weekly Wrapup is an opportunity to focus on all that did happen.

 

Homemaking:

This week I initiated a group of ladies to prepare meals for the minister’s wife as they are leaving town and she holds down a full time job and is finding it difficult to work full time, come home cook dinner and then pack.  It is a big task.  So we are going to cover their meals for them over the next 3 weeks (at least the main dish). 

 

Friendships

I visited two ladies who had babies this week.  One was still in hospital the other had moved out (due to how noisy the hospital can be at times).

 

This weekend we had a homeschool co-op family fun day.  This is like the old fashioned Sunday School Picnics with egg and spoon races, sack races, 3-legged races and the like.  Fun was had by all.  I may get some pictures posted later.

 

We ducked over to our friends to see their new-born puppies.  While there my friend cleared the pool from little people and I had 15minutes of swimming.  I hope to do this whenever we visit.

 

Joshua is working with some boys in the community to create a friendship group for a boy with Downs Syndrome.  So far they have gone out on the river and this week they did scuba diving basics at the public pool.  This has been a positive experience for all involved and Josh looks forward to this continuing.

 

Not sure that this fits in the ‘friendship’ category but due to relationships in the community Peter was asked to conduct a funeral.  I went along with him, though I didn’t know the family involved.  Though we would never have expected to get involved in this aspect of people’s lives the truth of it is that this is when people need loving, caring people  (even if they don’t want anything to do with the God that helps us to be that way!)

 

Training our Children:

Joshua – We managed to have a little fashion parade with his new clothes – dress pants, business shirts and ties – all ready for his trip to Canberra.  I think he has the whole tie thing sorted!  We need more practice this coming week.

 

As Josh gets ready for his trip to Canberra he has to write a 90sec political speech with a  selected theme.  Co-inciding with this assignment has been some old-time friends being in town.  It has been great to see Mr M. and Josh head to head talking things over – our kids need older people in their lives.

 

Jess – Jessica had another wonderful week as we continue to sort out books and bookcases.  We still have more sorting to go but we are chipping away at it.  Jess has been practicing not only her piano but also her singing now. 

 

Nomi – Last week I gave Nomi a drawing/art book with a variety of exercises and projects in it and told her that I wanted her to develop her art skill by working for ½ hour each day.  She loved the idea and has been itching for more than ½ hour a day – which of course she can have!  It was a good lesson for me, as I have tried to give her this book before and she was unenthusiastic – it just goes to show that timing our encouragements is important.


The other area we are aware of with Nomi is the need to ‘bump her up’ in regards to responsibilities.  She is more than able and yet out of habit we continue to ask Jess to do things, being the older one.  This week I gave specific organisation tasks to Nomi and she just blossomed with the responsibility.

 

Daniel – Our primary education goal last week with  Daniel was to establish the habits of his discipline studies – math, typing, phonics workbook, and his Adventure box which has independent activities based on Pirates. 

 

Daniel had a wonderful play date during the week too.  Daniel needs to work more on Tolerance – accepting other people’s differences (his struggles with these things comes out as telling tales.)
