Ways to avoid marking #1

I’ve got a lot of work on over the next few weeks – so expect some procrastination. Today’s prescription:

Lovely weather! Add a desire to avoid cooking and it  equals a fish and chip picnic at the beach – our first of the year. It was over 25 degrees still at 5pm, the girls had managed massive naps despite the heat, and going out felt better than marking.

Dinner done, it was time to explore. As you can see, the tide was waaaaay out. This coupled with a quiet evening meant Miss 4 was feeling quite confident. After intially exploring the beach, the girls were pleased to find I’d packed their togs. Even though it was about 7.30 by this stage, on they went, and we discovered that the water was really pleasant.  It’s awesome to see how Miss 4 has grown in confident at the beach – two years ago she screamed!  Last year she wouldn’t touch the water. And now look at her!

Miss 2 has never been shy of the waves.  She’s a teensy bit uncertain, but was right alongside her big sister.

So, with all that avoidance going on, I guess it’s time I did some marking! 

Watch this space for more avoidance techniques in action.

    Oh lovely. My girl still refuses to get her face wet. Even in the shower. This makes washing her hair rather difficult sometimes.
