Paper plane fun

On Tuesday afternoon, Harry got sick. His teacher phoned asking me to pick him up early. His classmates were very sympathetic and just gorgeous. After a rough afternoon and evening of being sick, very sick, he awoke at 4am yesterday morning a new man. Me on the other hand felt very sleep deprived!! I convinced him to lie in bed for another hour but he was just busting to get up, so up we got. To make sure he really was better, we had a very quite morning. The boys watched tv, read their books and played with their castle. I learnt how to crochet little flowers for a very special babies bottom. Not to shabby, huh?! Oh and in response to my beautiful M.I.L's question, the pants do up by a drawstring, which I haven't put in yet.

We all then had a lovely nap in the middle of the day. I was inspired by Amanda at SouleMama with this post about having a craft set up for the kids when they wake in the morning. I thought that applies to naps too. I found 2 patterns for paper airplanes and made those, then set up the paints outside. They awoke to see new their new planes and we then spent the next 2 hours in the afternoon sun, painting, flying and knitting. Pure bliss!

Look! In the sky (specifically by the top of the gate!!) Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Why yes!!! It is a plane, a paper plane!

(I have just realised that the plane is really blending in with the mailbox. Oh well, you will just have to use your imagination). It was a great made it all the way across the dangerous ocean (the driveway) into the other airport (the rocks). Landing can be hazardous but FUN!!
