So...Ballet

Someone asked if she could do dancing this year, so we set about finding what was available in  our area and found some ballet classes for her to try out.  She was so excited to start but when we arrived for her first lesson she was a bit apprehensive.  I didn't want to distract her too much with the camera but I managed to snap a few hazy pics while she anxiously made sure I never left her sight.  Since then we have returned and she merrily ran into class without a backward glance at me.  She is really enjoying it and I am enjoying watching her dance about like the beautiful ballerina she is!

So...April's Bits & Pieces

I love the change of seasons and April has definitely seen the weather cool, the colours start changing and the light gaining that beautiful crystal quality I love.
We have had many lovely warm days but today the wind has a particularly icy chill to it that makes it hard to remember we were swimming with friends a short week ago.
We also had to say goodbye to our cousins, hello to the easter bunny and unpack all the feather duvets.  It's been so long since I last posted that trawling through the photos was no small feat, so here are the first batch with more to follow over the next few days *touch wood*

Water baby girls
A bed full of tired munchkins
 The littles made friends
 We spent a few hours at the Mud Man triathlon, spectating the way sane folk do.
 We had a lovely day at the beach


 And took all the cousins for a walk to try get a photo or two of all of them
 And then miracle of miracles...all the children together!

 There is something I love about this photo of Seth helping up his cousin
 Spinning
 Conquering tree stumps
And our girl insisted I take a photo of her doing this..,planking???
 We spent a day at the aquarium which is always a great treat!




 Having a snack at the dolphin show
