"A portrait of our children once a week, every week, in 2014."
Wow. And just like that, we're half way through the year! It's been a very full week around here. My dad's 60th birthday which included a family meal out on his actual birthday then a celebration with plenty of friends on Saturday night. In between we moved out of our little farm house and into my parents' and then my parents left for their move down to Christchurch on Sunday morning. So there was a lot of time with family, which was great! Lots of boxes and cleaning and unpacking and then some goodbyes - not so fun. We're now settling into our new home, which feels so much more like "home" probably because it is a family home. We feel very blessed to be here, but it's bittersweet knowing that it means my parents will now live a long way away.
A: It's always fun to watch you play and listen to the worlds you create with your wonderful imagination. You are incredibly quick, creative and fun!
E: We're looking after a little friend's two bunnies while she's overseas for two months. This was your introduction to one. We're pretty excited to have pets. In fact, within one day of our move we have acquired four pets for the moment - a dog, a cat and two rabbits!
T: We're Oska's temporary family for a few weeks until he will move to stay with my sister and her family once they've settled into their new home and city. You're very happy to have his more permanent company for a while, and he's generally very good with allowing little, unpredictable people to get close!
You're a fan of everyone who stops and gives you their time. It was a lot of fun having family stay overnight on Saturday and you were more than pleased to have your cousin around. She's your size, even though she's 8 months older and an object of much interest to you as she is much more mobile, coming and going all around the house. We had some fun moments and memories created with you and your pyjama twin :o)
