At the weekend we caught up with some longstanding friends, who we have not seen in over three years! Guillermo and his family have travelled over from Spain and have been in the area these past few weeks:
The man himself taking photos.
Showing off his cowboy boots that his older daughter brought back from Oklahoma on a school exchange. The kids pretend that they are not with him when he wears them :-)
Pip with Carmen and Paula.
Benedict and Pip have spent some extra time at holiday club this week. The whole experience has been such a positive boost for Benedict's confidence and he has been buzzing everyday with new information and has loved hanging out with the other kids. Needless to say he was quite sad, coming home today as the realisation of his situation sunk in :-( I am praying that something good will happen for him soon and I know that God has a special plan for him, so this keeps me going :-)
A medium sized Japanese Knot Bag for Miss G, the head at Pip's school and the mastermind behind the three week holiday club. She was there everyday from seven in the morning until six at night and was not paid a penny! The other army of helpers were paid out of a special fund. She is a keen knitter and I thought she would appreciate somewhere to keep her many projects. Her office currently looks like a tornado has swept through, leaving a trail of chaos in its wake ~ hama beads, kids toys, spare school uniforms, books, books and more books! Knitting projects, stuffed toys, photographs, coffee mugs, musical instruments and paper strewn everywhere!! Despite the chaos, I bet she can lay her hand to anything needed :-)
Dave and I have not lain idle, we have caught up on paperwork, the household budget ( sorely needed), the top part of the house has had a jolly good clean and I even managed some baking for the kids lunches at holiday club:
Pizza Pinwheels ~ the savoury version of cheese and tomato.
The sweet version ~ peanut butter and chocolate spread.
Tomorrow we are off to Cumbria to visit Kathryn and Mary Grace, so no doubt there'll be plenty of pics of the little one.
