On Monday, we went to see Julia, baby Taisia and the rest of the family. I'm the lovely friend with 3 sons (obviously) ;)))). It had been ages since we visited them, but/and/so it was good to see them again and catch up!
Boaz went to Beavers. He wasn't really eager to go, but once he got there, he was happy. Tomorrow, Job will go with him (he wasn't at home last Monday), because Boaz feels more comfortable with Job there. He says he doesn't understand everything they say.
On Tuesday we went to a friends house. We go there every week if possible. They've got two kittens, so Adam is on the floor most of the time, playing with them for hours. The other boys have fun playing with her boys.
On Wednesday, we had a meeting with the Christian homeschoolers. We went for a walk (and three playgrounds) and cake and hot chocolate afterwards. We're not very keen walkers (the boys and I), so it was really good to be outside for a long time, playing and chatting. I didn't take pictures, but Devon in Autumn is just gorgeous! It's such a pleasure to drive for almost an hour and enjoy the scenery!
We borrowed all three Lord of the Rings movies and have watched them (several times ;)) last week. Some parts fast forward, but hey ho!
This is the start of the movie. The most peaceful part of the movie ;). It doesn't have the original music, but it's a nice intro.
This is the original music. Wow. Even nicer when you can see the instruments that play the music.
On Thursday we went swimming in 'our' pool. Good choice to get a pass! All three boys love it.
tonight, we have celebrated our first year in the UK! I had picked an American Diner for a restaurant, because I knew the boys would really enjoy that. We went to Casey's diner in Paignton. Especially Adam enjoyed his gigantic burger!
On the way back, we went along Paignton and Torquay sea front. I know the picture (taken in the car) doesn't really show it, but it looked really lovely, the lights at the sea front, the hills and the houses....This picture is better :)
See you next week, what are your plans?
Whatever it is, enjoy the good things in life!!
