Wordless Wednesday 30 January

I am back all refreshed and here is my photo taken while on holiday at Ohiwa Beach.

My two children walking to the water on a stinking hot day with White Island (a volcano) smoking in the far distance.

A First Meal.

So McKenzie is now of an age when I feel she should start to learn to make meals.  She can bake cookies but they are not going to be much good to here when she is hungry for an evening meal and out in the world fending for herself.  She is not learning food technology at school so it is up to me.

So when we got home from camping I decided we would start with a meal that was very versatile.....mince.  So under my direction for the meat and by herself for the rest here was our meal that night........mince (with the hidden vege in it, new potatoes and garden salad.

So she will have another go when school has got underway and I think she should have a try at meatloaf.  Hmmm what do you think?

(This is my view as I sat on the sand under our shade while on holiday.  In the distance you can just see White Island smoking (thats that white in the sky that looks like cloud).  I have a book in hand and my children happily playing as you do while at the beach.)

The school year is starting tomorrow and I am more ready than usual to get up and going.  One one child will starting and the other two will take the next week to get started.  So tonight One lunch box is sitting in the fridge ready to go.  The alarm clock is set and school bag with stationery ready to go.

What is an Idiot?

According to this little conversation Hayden who has a cognative age of about 3years suddenly decided to add his thoughts to use who were trying to help him.

Hayden  No I can do it I'm not dumb

We were all silent for a moment as we could not believe that he could even think of something like that, and then let him have a go for himself.

Then I was reminded, by my lovely friend Mary-Anne of this great quote

Everybody is a genius.  But if you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believe that it is stupid.
