our week in words and pictures

Here’ a few highlights from the last week…

We had another learning community this week, and it was great to have Rich’s mum able to come along on the Wednesday morning to see what we’re doing. Here’s Rich explaining the learning community process to her.

On Friday it was Comic Relief/World Book Day fancy dress at the kid’s school. Josiah went as “Flat Stanley” and also won a “Golden Assembly award” for sensible and conscientious behaviour. #proudmummoment

Saturday, among other things, was boy’s haircut day. In another life I think Rich would have quite fancied his chances as a hairdresser….

Esther went to a party on Saturday and came back as a beautiful butterfly. We’ve all been praying for good school friends for the older two kids and it feels like that has become reality, along with numerous parties to attend! Here’s the butterfly, complete with full-on-bling party-bag ring…

We loved seeing my old school friend, Lynne, and her new(ish) hubby Erich. I had a great time being her bridesmaid last April and they now live in Germany so it’s pretty special when we get chance to catch up in real-life (rather than over skype)

On Sunday the kids and I dropped Rich and another 3dm team member, Andrea, off at the airport. They’re meeting up with some other 3dm team in Holland to do the last two learning communities of the term. Of course, we had to have an obligatory coffee at Costa before we said goodbye..

And finally.. “packing”, in the broadest sense of the word, has begun for India. Just 11 days to go till our trip so with no visitors this week the spare bed is being fully utilised for the packing procedure…
