Sorry to anyone who has popped in over the past week to find that there were no new posts. Phil and myself and the two youngest have been battling the flu, which has left absolutely no extra energy. The only thing that was made in the last week was Aaron's costume. As the culmination of 'Culture Week' the whole school dressed up yesterday. Aaron stated rather decisively on Monday at breakfast that he would like to be a Samurai warrior. Applauding his initiative and decisiveness, I said 'Sure!' with little idea of what a Samurai wore... This came together mostly from things we had at hand (other than the $5 viking helmet which we sabotaged), and without taking up too much time (it had to be done with little mess and between 'home tours' by prospective house buyers). Aaron was awfully pleased with the result. I think it would have been so much easier if he'd said 'Sumo wrestler' rather than 'Samurai warrior'.
