A Good Sort OF Week.

Funny how it felt like a stressful, crazy sort of week, with ridiculous sorts of shenanigans going on with car trouble, earaches and colds, insane milage driven all over the place, oh I could go on. But now I sit down and pull all these photos together and I realise, actually, we had a lovely time all the same, with lots of sunshine and friends. 

One of the reasons I love blogging!



What do they talk about, the little ones?


Off to school, barefoot. Summer...


Learning team work!


He's finally finished his exams. First year over.
Time to chill out!


Busy little hands, quiet murmurings, 
and endless, endless questions.


On the way home from school
we seize the sunshine!


In school we celebrated Wesak, the Buddha's Enlightenment.
(Dodgy iPhone shots!)


Some of the prayers written by the older children and put on the 'Bodhi Tree' we made.


Fire show at a friends party, the children were entranced.
I wasn't going to include one of these photos due to the poor nighttime quality,
but I think I actually like the fact that it looks like a painting! 


Waiting for Dada.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We are now counting down to the summer holidays!

These are such beautiful, original photos. I particularly like the last one with all the shadows and light and expectancy. Also the little Bodhi Tree is marvelous --

As an aside, I posted my fifth and tenth posts today!

Wonderful photos, Ciara. Looks like a perfect start to summer week. The one of R in the deck chair-- could have sworn is was Jay. Well done to him on finishing his exams! Lovely one of F walking to school in her bare feet. And of course the two little ones deep in conversation and "Waiting for Dada." All gorgeous.
