Books, Blood and Thermo-Regulation

We made the book sale. The kids enjoyed it but I think they were a little overwhelmed by the size of it and the amount of books! All the books in the children's area were spine side up, so hard to dig over and the tables were pretty high for small people but they did manage to rat around and find some great books. I went last night along with half of New Plymouth, so glad I waited for a quiet time to take the small fry. I found some really old school, simple books. One about blood, all about red and white cells in really basic terms, great resource. I find we rely so much on Mr Google these days but nice for the kids to be able to pick up a book and read it to find information in their language geared at their level of understanding. Lily got a great old book full of science experiments and she is desperate to make an egg pop out of a bottle but she wants to write about that next week. The suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat, I am sure!

The rest of the pics were taken by the incredible Mr Tim. He took the kids and the dogs to the beach for a run. It was as windy as anything but evidence shows that thermo-regulation does not develop until after the age of 7. Subject at hand: Lily.

They all came back covered in sand. Only a fraction of what is to come. A friend and I have hired a bach for a night, around the coast a wee bit. The weather is meant to be good tomorrow and then turning to custard over night. Fingers crossed for some fun adventures!


  1. Great photos! How's that picasa going? ;) Looks awesome!

  2. Wow I am in awe of the no-tv challenge. Looks like you are having a wonderful time together too.... so tell me, are you allowed to watch ones the kids are asleep? lol

    1. No we haven't dragged it out yet! I did watch Grey's and Nothing Trivial on the laptop and managed to watch Beyond the darklands at work last week. I took the kids away last night and my super husband was so busy DIYing he didn't even get it out either.

  3. I've linked to your blog. You can find my post here
