A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.
Mahlia: After a week of saying she didn't want to do nippers, she decided she did want to join and today was the first day of the season. She had an absolute ball, she had a smile on her face all morning during every activity. It was a hot and exhausting day, but she can't wait to go back next week. She was once so shy and nervous, I'm so proud of the confident young girl she has become. Hubby had a hernia operated on this week, and, being the sensitive soul that she is, she has been so worried about him. It meant the world to her to have him come to nippers to watch her.
Leila: Leila loves books. We go to the library once a week for story time, and she'll 'read' the books we borrow over and over. We borrow a handful of books for Mahlia to read, and now Leila has another person who can read to her.
Archer: Suffering from yet another cold and cough. He has learnt a new trick this week, and can now pull himself up to stand, his place of choice being in the bath—not ideal!
