These are the doors for the candles, we'll put some sand in the bottom to hold them still.
Little one danced. She is very keen on her music at the moment.
The Bowerbirds played with Friday's op shop buys. Middle one read Tickle My Nose to little one, actions and all.
The big bowerbird and I sorted through her clothes, a whole lot that won't fit this summer, putting aside favourites for the little one and other's to pass on to friends. She's almost as big as me now, we share the same shoe size. She's old enough to choose her own music too, and as we culled clothes she put on some Sal Kimber and the Rollin' Wheel 'Sounds Like Thunder' as the storm rolled through. Lovely she still shares some of her mum's musical tastes, we could sing rainy songs together. http://www.myspace.com/salkimber/music/songs/tempt-the-rain-64893558
Today was warm and sunny, a breezy hay fever sneezy kind of day. Tomorrow is forecast 17 and rain, crazy all over the place Spring weather. The kids will walk to school together, probably with umbrellas, in the rain tomorrow, they like it, a bit of extra adventure.
Not a very outdoor wet rainy post to play along with The Playlist, more indoor imaginative play! We had more water play with our sandy post last week.
On Thursday, I did spray 25 hot students with the hose whilst watering the garden after working in the school vegie patch. I got the teachers permission for the first Junior Landcare class we had, and held the hose high, waving it about and watching them squeal and run under the spray. I think it was the highlight of their day. The poor second class had a much sterner teacher who wasn't even happy with the kids using mattocks, so I didn't dare ask if I could wet them too.
