"A portrait of my children, once a week every week in 2013"


Sophie: Oh so mischievous... filthy here after traipsing through black garden soil to pull not-yet-ripe lemons off our tree... a scratched cheek the result of her efforts.

Grace: Our little sensitive soul has made it five days straight without crying at kindy drop-off in the past fortnight... we're hoping the cycle of anxiety has been broken.  There have been more tears than usual at home however... the result of a tired little girl for whom school holidays can't come around quick enough...


Joining in with Jodi


Last week I loved Brandy's oh so beautiful photos, sweet Sage on her morning walk and two little twin gumnut babies...

  3. They look SO alike in these shots don't you think.

    Hope Grace has another good week at Kindy. My Kids are tired as well but we still have another 3 weeks here until School holidays. sigh.

    Have a lovely week.

  5. don't they just love the dirt?! so cute...and she looks very pleased with her lemon-treasure. :)

    school holidays usually can't come round quick enough for everyone...but for kindy children, it must be the best time of all. i am so pleased for you that she has settled in and there hasn't been so many tears. i've been wondering how grace has been going during drop offs. i hope you're coping okay too (every time olive cries in public when hurt, etc, i can't help but well up with tears too -- i'm such a softie.)

  9. Oh, their eyes. You can see how different their personalities are! Sophie looks like a cheeky little monkey; Grace, like a soft gentle little angel :)
