Good Friday

Kit is very proficient on the computer - and has been for a while - at the moment he likes to prepare powerpoint presentations for Hannah's 'talking lessons' using clipart. Hannah has been wanting to have a go on the alptop for a long time too - but she just didnt' have the concept of moving the mouse in relation to the arrow on the screen. It was a very difficult time - because I knew she really wanted to know how to use the computer. I considered asking her EI teachers for some ideas. Her ST made one simple suggestion - put a sticker on the left mouse for her to at least click correctly. I did this and then Kit or I would help line up the cursor on the screen. Anyways I don't know what happened but in the last 3-4 weeks (after using some fo the powerpoint presentations) she is just steaming ahead. Pretty much one fo the first things she says when she wakes up is 'Piglet game'. Here she is first thing Friday morning having been told that it was Kit's turn ont he computer:
Lucky after a rocky start every one had a great day:
Balloon fun

Watering the vegies.
Hannah on a lounge on R on a lounge.
R made delicious cupcakes
On Friday our good friends from around the corner came over and cooked us lunch. It was beautiful - and a lovely afternoon too. My sister and her family dropped over too - they arrived from Brisvegas just the night before. Her son slept over - Hannah was exhausted and crashed before dinner. She spent most of the night in our bed. The boys went to bed at Kit's usual bedtme but then in true slumber party tradition stayed up chatting til nearly 10. They had a ball.

Yay for learning the computer!! The sticker on the mouse was a great idea.

I wish that we had a veggie garden - that is just so cool!
