The last day of the school holidays coincided with me having to finish my first essay
and David kindly offered to take the children away for the morning.
They went into the Drawing Room which Reuben has been wanting to for ages.
Then they went into the ReStart Mall
which is a mall created entirely from Shipping Containers
(there's a lot of stuff in shipping containers here in Christchurch)
They had morning tea together.
And then they went to Lyttelton and went in the ferry across to Diamond Harbour
which is a short trip but the kids love it.
Reuben sat down and worked on his newly purchased materials
while Annie ran about as she does.
And David took loads of pictures!! It was such a laid back morning
but so special. I tend to only do one thing at a time but David he managed to
fit several fun things into one morning.
I really appreciate having David's support and his energy.
I'm so glad I get to parent with my other half. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to parent as a team.
Let's not pretend it's all hearts and roses (keeping it real)
but a relationship is an on-going process!
We live in the midst of beautiful countryside really,
ten minutes from home and here is this. Amazing.
Didn't David create a lovely outing for the kiddies?
And the essay is finished. Just a 3-hour exam to study for and Psychology 101 is finished.
