Hello! Finally I’ve found the time (and opportunity and energy) to write an update. It’s been a most eventful four weeks!
First of all, the kids were just taking turns falling sick, and this time, they had high fevers (40 degrees!) throughout the week! Amy started first, with ulcers in her mouth and then the crazy high fever for a week. Then as she got well, it was Alistair’s turn.
Cherry blossoms are blooming, wildflowers are shooting out, and that means… spring is near! The weather, however, is still erratic. One day it would be warm and lovely, and the next would be freezing like Elsa’s castle. It’s as though Winter and Spring are now engaged in an epic war, both refusing to give up power over Melbourne. Well, Winter, I hate to break it to you, but your time is up.
Reading is such an important part of life, no matter your age, but even more so for young children. I like how J.K. Rowling put it: “I do believe that something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”
