We have been whooping it up over here at Betsy's in the gorgeous winter sunshine. Now that both kids have their Micro scooters we are unstoppable, it has really increased the distances we can travel. Roboboy has not had the balance needed to ride a two wheel scooter but is now just like all his mates. I would highly recommend these scooters to anyone who has a child with coordination or balance issues and even two year olds can ride them. Amazingly, even the wearing of long rainbow skirts and one armed lamb clutching does not hinder fast scootering either.
Given that the school holidays were a cesspit of disease, the kids have been very busy making up for lost time. There have been intensive collage sessions,
Building of turkey traps that require intensive testing on the unsuspecting toy lambs of little sisters,
and even one afternoon where both kids worked together in a highly unusual display of unified solidarity so as to open their own library. Complete with both fiction and non fiction sections, personalized library cards, scanner, returns chute and borrowing limits. Both the cat and I were entitled to 8 items each and hefty fines were in place for late returns.
Meanwhile I have been finding some sunny sunshine pyrex. I found two of these sunflowery pyrex lids that the kids have pinched and are using as plates,
And to top off the week a pyrex flower pie dish as well.
Despite record cold overnight temperatures of 3 degrees! (this is Brisbane folks, with no heaters or even carpet in our houses it is seriously freezing), that daily dose of sunshine is just perking us all up enormously.
