The kids first swim of the season

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

We went out to Waimarama Beach the other day with some friends and Jasper and Kahlo had their first swim..well Jasper did, Kahlo did so much squealing and running...Girls!! They had such a ball and are now hounding constantly to go back to the beach, fortunately we live across the road from a swimming beach.
Today as I hold my children close to me our hearts go out to the family of little Aisling Symes who went missing a week ago and who's little body was found last night.
Kia Kaha we hope you find strength.

Miss 2 helping Daddy with his work

Little Miss 2 has been unwell this week so has been staying at home, not going to daycare. She spent two days in her PJ's and was more than happy to greet customers dressed like this. One cool guy who came to talk to us about a job bought his daughter and the two girls played happily..the tiny visitor totally unfazed that Miss 2 was not dressed. I love that the kids are so part of our work that it is so normal for one of them to perch on our knee or grab a paint brush to help out.

This is it last chance to name our brand spanking new wall decals could win so hop to it...Good luck!!!
