A year in the life 2016 #163: all the children

image

It was a pupil-free day for a lot of schools including the boys and their cousins. So everyone was at our house for the morning. Fortunately it was beautiful weather.

Jude, Zachary, Emilie, Scarlett and I went to the park while Sebastian stayed at home with his new ice cream machine and made delicious raspberry sorbet. A good morning.

A year in the life 2016 #155: Happy birthday Emmie

Birthday season comes in force in June. We went out for pizza for Emilie’s birthday. It was too dark to get a good picture of the birthday girl, but I couldn’t resist this picture of Scarlett. You go girl – enjoy your food!

Sebastian chose a paintball party for his birthday with a bunch of his friends from school. Much sweaty, shooting fun was had.

We then got to Emilie’s birthday party in time for the cake. Turning half Sebastian’s age at 7!

Today I picked up Scarlett and Emilie from school and had them over for a couple of hours. While Jude had his viola lesson, the rest of us went to the park.

Apparently it is near impossible to get all these troublemakers looking at the camera and smiling nicely at the dame time.

All the photos should just have been of Scarlett and Zac who were composed throughout.

And clearly Sebastian is the worst offender.

A year in the life 2016 #43: breaks for food

image

It was not the best Sunday ever. With a change of Minister I spent almost the entire day working in order to get change of Minister briefs down. Brief break to visit the Holland St market for lunch, then back to work.

At least it was all finished by dinner time so I could enjoy that with the wider family.

How much do kids love a pool? Chucking a bunch of cousins in together is a recipe for fun.
