Lj's 7th Birthday




As usual my birthday pics are very poor...the day always seems to run away from me and I don't get a chance to get clicking!

Lj had the 'best day ever' with a pottery party at Diane Harkness Ceramics. They made cute little bunny pinch pots and watched Diane on the wheel.

It doesn't feel strange for Lj to now be 7 yrs old. I think I have been treating her like a 7 yr old for a long time.

A day in the life of Mr Ez


Messy breakfast time.


A little play.


Climbing.


Morning chat with the cows.


Lots of car journeys.


Hiding in his favourite cupboard under the sink.


And lots of pulling things out of drawers, cupboards and boxes!

Last day of P5 and P3!


It's hard to get a good photo of this motely crew but I thought it appropriate to take a photo of their last day in P5 and P3 and the end of their first year in a new school. We feel so blessed with how they have settled in and become part of their new school. Now no pack lunches and 6 less journeys per day in the car for 8 whole weeks. After that the fun will really begin when God willing there will be four to get out the door in the mornings and MJ will begin studying for his transfer test...ekk!

Saturday film and art




We made it back to Millennium Court Arts centre on Saturday to watch 'Horton hear a Who!' and to create cityscapes. Meanwhile at home there was a 20 tonne digger pulling out tree stumps with its own artistry and grace.

Ezra has chicken pox!


My little niece creates a piece of art for me every time I see her. Yesterday she gave me her artists impression of Ezra with the chicken pox!

Say 'no' to screens!


This is what happens when I say 'no' to screens and endure 5mins of tantrum. I love how they play creatively with Ezra's toys! Ezra helps by emptying the box of duplo onto the floor and then crawls off to play with the hoover!
