Hi! It's not that nothing is happening, it's just that working, having a 3y.old, a hubby that does shift work and a small farm....well, enough said!
It has been raining on and off, but we have still managed a few beautiful days. I love Autumn in Tassie, it is actually a season here! In Perth we went from Summer to Winter and back, like flicking a switch. Here we have a huge variety of trees that actually drop their leaves; toddler and I have been appreciating the many colours we find on the ground. I tried to get a few nice photos, but I think they may come off as just soggy!
Some updates, little man is still having to complete speech therapy (drills urghhhh). We are working on his /s/sh/f/. He has quickly mastered the /sh/ and /f/, but that /s/...I have found myself with my fingers in his little mouth trying to push his tongue behind his teeth and close his teeth...tricky! Luckily I have a huge amount of reinforcers, the latest is an obstacle course in the hallway whilst holding a beanbag on a spoon...he loves it! Every drill completed results in in a hallway race, I'm not sure who is more exhausted. His little friend also attends the same speech therapist, so he must think it is normal for Mum's to elongate words in conversation lol!

I was getting frustrated at the amount of gardening I wasn't getting done, we have about an acre of garden that needs weeding, mowing and looking after. I have been working at least one day every week, and with taking little man to playgroup in town, playdates, weekly pre-kinder class and then just the usual shopping/cleaning/washing etc...where does the time go? So instead I decided to enlist the help of some hungry boys...why didn't I think of this earlier?

|Adlin - 'So much to do!'|
|'I can't possibly do this all on my own'|
|'You guys leave all the big jobs to me...'|
|'Better just get on with it then...'|
|Everyone on the job!|
|Not to be out done, the girls were placed in charge of the back garden...|
|Where they did a great job of eating all of the grass between the roses...oh, and pruning the roses too!|
|'Gee! I hope we don't have to do that side too?!'|
