Hours of entertainment

Have been trying to have a bit better day today than we did on Tuesday (which was a really horrible day, on the whole)... Did some activities with the boys this morning. Used some magnetic word and letter tiles this morning with Erik to go through adding various letters to the ending -at and the ending -ad... Did this with end ending -at the other day and Erik seemed to enjoy it... Today wasn't as successful. Then spent some time looking at the new tables chart I bought the boys yesterday. Erik really likes this because the answers are all in front of him and he knows how to read them.

On the whole, I think he really likes how maths has internal logic, and how it stays the same; a 7 is never a 4, it's always a 7 - I think that really appeals to him, so he might be much more mathematically inclined than either Dave or myself...

At one point I was knitting (trying to do some, haven't knitted in over a week), and I realised all was quiet. A quick hunt around revealed the boys sitting fixated in front of the dryer...

This is our new dryer...


and this is the boys in front of it, where they've spent most of the day!!!




I LOVE!!! our dryer! I washed and dried a load of nappies today in 3 hurs!!! That is usually a two day activity, and my nappies are soooo soft, I'm all excited about putting soft, fluffy nappies on Bryn's bum, instead of cardboard bits of hemp!

I'm doing towels right now, yay! We're always short of towels because we try to get other washing done first... Next I'm going to wash and dry all my pants, another than always has to wait, in preference of the boys clothing... I love having a dryer!
