Toby has worked out he can drag the picnic table underneath the tree, and then jump off it onto the rope swing. He spends hours out there. His face shines with pure joy as he leans back and sails through the air. Once again he is just growing and changing before our eyes.
With the onset of warmer weather we are eating our dinners out on the veranda. Eating out there has the added bonus that we can hose down the floor after the meal if we need to. We sit out there in the late afternoon light and once the kids have finished eating, they will disappear, and we sit there for another few minutes just enjoying the quiet.
Last night Country Boy took the camera out on the veranda to try and take some photos of lightning. There were quite a few misses (there are always heaps of misses with lightning), but he did get this one!
I had to laugh when after I published my rant about commercialisation of Christmas on Tuesday, I got several emails offering me the very stuff I was ranting about. Got to laugh when you get emails offering you the opportunity to review items which have the word 'city' in it, and are aimed at mothers of babies. Not much of either around here!
