iSonto #6

Boxes were turned into a house.

Playing together is just beginning. 

Elnathan was genuinely helpful with putting nappies into the washing machine - and he finds it exciting!

We got out his set of farm animals which can be strung onto a thread. No threading happened, but he did line them up and said they were going on a walk to the community center!

Mercy was kept busy while we attempted to start a quiet reading time after lunch.

From garden to tummies . . .  
Kale is one of the few veggies that have thrived in our winter garden. All the seeds came up in summer so we had plenty to transplant, and it has grown well. Our silverbeet has been picked within an inch of its life, so kale is being substituted for it in some recipes. This week I made spinach pies and substituted kale for some of the spinach/silverbeet. There are lots of health benefits to eating kale. In this picture you can see our silverbeet in the foreground and kale behind.

A book we enjoyed together was Spot Goes to a Party. This book has been read and re-read and quoted at the dinner table.

It has also been acted out with little pretend letters from Helen appearing in our house. Elnathan is a great fan of parties!

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from Heart-tenderizing words. Having personal pity parties is one of things I am aiming to overcome, so this was a welcome additional reminder.

We are thankful for the fact that Dave has Saturdays off paid work so he can work in our garden. 

Isonto is a Zulu word for both week and Sunday, so Dave suggested it as the title of this little update I plan (God willing) to put ou
t each Sunday.
