When you can’t find shorts that dont look like undies, you are forced to make your own. I had Cassandra try on a few but they were too short. Her last pair of shorts were actually boy ones, they dont force boys to wear skimpy shorts, it’s not the 70s anymore. Haha. Anyway, I hoped on to youtube once again and whipped them up in no time. Yesterday, I couldn’t stand the birds any more. We have them in our lounge room and they make so much mess with all their seed. So I got to work and make a skirt? for the cage, and it actually contains it. yay!
Today I recieved my magazine that Jared subscribed me to. Im on to the final ones now. I opened up the magazjne to see the message that I hoped that they printed. Bonus. Apart from Christ, my family is my greatest blessing.
Life has been pretty busy these last weeks. Everything that the children do, has a final night, or exam etc. Alycia had her grade 6 piano exam and achieved an A with honors. She wasna trooper handling her nerves this time. Her piano teacher has recommended that she skips grade 7 and goes straight into 8. Wow. I love that they can play. I have to admit that I dont enjoy the repetitive practice though. Some love it, I do not. Afterwards we went to Chadston to have a look around. It is a massive shopping centre.
We had the College dinner. Jared recieved an award for being the hip lecturer. He used BAE a few too many times. This is what happens when you have a teenage girl to teach you stuff like that. We have also been to a wedding and have another one this week to attend.
The children were interviewed this week for Church membership. I think that the children were all encouraged in this. All of us as a family will become members together.
I have just begun to make Softies for Mirabel again. This time they will be collecting them in February, so there is no hurry. Theynwant homemade toys to give to children who have rough lives. The softies use to be displayed in the window, but they dont do that anymore. I use to get a buzz not only seeing mine in the window, but all the other handmade items. So far Inhave made 4 toys.I forgot to take a photo of the two monkeys, I will do that tomorrow.
