Enjoying: family time at the park



Waiting: till my garden is full of flowers again



Liking: hugs with my now 8 year old



Wondering: what colour to choose next



Loving: awesome photos



Pondering: if we are all just a little bit broken underneath our nice exterior and if some people hide it better than others



Considering: another road trip


Watching: the boys have deep conversations while digging the garden



Hoping: good changes take time



Marvelling: at how well plants grow when you forget about them

Smelling: lavender

Wearing: all the clothing



Following: the weather forecast waiting for snow



Noticing: how little clothing this child wears compared to me

Thinking: that I should really take advantage of the sunshine and put on some washing

Feeling: warmth from the sun

Admiring: our awesome family


Buying: food 

Getting: quilt inspiration from Instagram

Master W.... you are 8 years old today


You still want hugs and to be right next to me


teddy is still very important to you


everything you do is with 100% effort and concentration


you still love having your photo taken


as long as you are in a good mood


playgrounds are so much fun


you have a great sense of adventure


and have a love of rocks
(and we are so sorry we brought the wrong rock home the other day from our trip up the hill)


you enjoy playing pranks on your swim teacher  more than actually swimming


you take great responsibility in feeding the cat each night


you are super helpful in the kitchen


shorts and a t-shirt is all you want to wear all year round 
(I'm sorry I made you wear a jersey with it being below 5 degrees and you were feeling hot)


we hope your new glasses make reading and writing easier


you have so much patience for your brother


you pull the funniest faces for photos


you are very honest about how you feel 


monkey moo you are growing up so fast

 we love you to the moon and back in a Milano Spaceship

xx


I love looking back over the past few years blog posts 7 years6 years,  5 years and 4 years

A weekend in Arthurs Pass

Leave a Comment
It was so nice to get away from Christchurch with friends for a night. 6 adults and 6 kids.


 The boys were expecting to arrive to snow on the ground......but the closest we got was ice on the side of the road on our way inland *insert disappointment here*

Springfield was a mandatory stop with photos taken with the large donut.


We went on many walks but they all seemed to get side tracked by a river, rocks and water.







We all had so much fun. 
I had to set limits to the amount of stones and rocks the boys wanted to bring home.


On our journey home the sun came out and we stopped at castle rock.




It was a great weekend away.
