STILLS : A WEEKLY COLLECTION (WEEK 40)

Last week was school holidays and the kids and I had a lovely time starting off with slow mornings and filling in our days with little activities.  Here's some pictures from our week.

Taking some close ups of this beautiful girl.

A very cheeky smile from Sienna.

My 10 year old who is nearly my 11 year old James.

Getting some pictures of James in the backyard.

Love the blue eyes.

The kids having a chat on the swings.

BBQ at our local park for lunch which was Sienna's suggestion.

Can't beat the bread, sausage, caramelized onions and sauce for lunch.

This beautiful flower is in the car park at the local shopping centre and I so happened to have my DSLR with me at the time so took a picture.

Pocket money on the 1st of the month.  James gets $10 (he is 10) and Sienna gets $8 (she is 8).

Playing a game of trouble using the "dice" programme on the laptop that James designed.

Afternoon trampoline fun.

Searching you tube videos on "how to draw" instructions.

My beautiful girl.

They both finished reading their books today.

This is James book he read in a week and a half which was over 500 pages.  He's good I tell you.

Sienna was thrilled to read this Andy Griffiths book.

How cute is this Koala that was at the Daisy Hill Koala Centre.

And we spotted this Kangaroo in the natural bush land.

Sienna enjoying visiting Aunty Lisa's bird Lucky.

This is very true for me.

Afternoon light and shadows.

Sorting out some wool I had purchased months ago to start my crocket project.

Cleaning up around the house and came across some art work of James he has done in Grade 5.
