Gav has been Gluten free since he was four, Lochy in the last couple of months and I've been Gluten free for about a month, Ben since I've stopped cooking Gluten food! Since discovering the amazing difference taking Gluten out of Gav's diet I've been interested in the effects of diet on his behaviour and health. Lochy came home with a sore tummy one day from school and my GP told me the only way I can improve my psoriasis is by taking out Gluten so that ment now our whole family was going Gluten free and Ben didn't mind. Our Biomedical Dr we had for Gav really wasn't moving us forward so I was searching for someone else to help us explore what supplements and diet could do to improve my family's health. A friend suggested Dr Heather Way and The Gaps diet for natural digestive healing. I read the book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome and I was very interested and
So now here we are, lots of cooking from scratch, soaking seeds, making my own condiments and hopefully soon yoghurt and fermented vegies. Dr Heather Way is also helping us with supplements after we joined the study she is running and we had some tests done. The kids are loving it and we are feeling better and better all the time.
So we've been busy this last week, not long until school holiday's. The boys brought out some games we haven't seen for awhile.
I got a day of casual Teacher aide work in a Prep class as well. I do love it and I am hoping to get more days next year. I still have study to complete but will be finished by Nov 2014.
Gav went to a classmates pool birthday party and it was something like that gameshow "Wipeout". Gav full on threw himself into it!
Then Sunday we went on a bike ride to Southbank which ended up with a swim and play in the water park. Pretty good motivation for a bike ride don't you think? It was lovely to have a cool off swim too.
Lovely sunny day right? Yes it was but in the afternoon we had such a storm there was a severe storm warning issued. We got hail and I haven't seen that ever at our house since we've lived here! It didn't last long but the wind blew the rain sideways. We were downstairs in the garage at the time. The bi-fold doors were open upstairs so it even blew the hail right into our living room! It wasn't much but sure was extreme. Gav and Lochy weren't frightened and even thought it was pretty cool they could pick up the hail and eat it!
Then tonight was a Talent show at Joey's/Cubs so we all came to watch the show! The boys were awesome, enjoying themselves heaps. I am loving watching them trying all these new things. So gorgeous watching them growing in confidence.
