A portrait of my children once a week every week in 2014Noah: this weekend when I asked if you wanted to do some of your maths workbook, you said "I'd much rather bake" and so that's just what we did. You helped me make some almond butter cookies (don't they look delicious!) as well as our favourite savoury herb crackers and you made quite the little sous chef measuring and mixing. Here you are chopping the garlic to go in the crackers. I really can't believe you will be eight this week!
Mylo: you have always loved your fruit, but you're certainly not such a fan of finding pips in them (you take after your mama there - it took me such a long time to appreciate passionfruit growing up!). After getting frustrated at finding the odd pip in your mouth when eating your mandarins, this week I showed you how to hold your mandarin segment up to the light to check for pips before you eat them. You have been doing it ever since!
