First up is the kids "Inner Health Plus" with juice. The juice is a treat and the Inner Health Plus is a kick start for both of them after being run down and exhausted from Term 1 of school.
This is the time we left home this morning for the school run. It was 10 minutes later then what I had planned however, this is REAL LIFE and that's what I am documenting this week.
Dropping the kids off at school today. I'm one of the lucky Mum's because both my kids love going to school so I don't have to worry about pushing them out of the car at drop off (that doesn't sound very good does it?) What I mean to say is, they are both keen learners and happily go off to school each day.
Back home to do start the morning routine of household chores. Put the washing on, empty the dishwasher and have some morning toast.
Next up on the agenda was making Lentil soup which I haven't made in ages and it's delicious. I'm not into lentils personally however a work friend made this for me for lunch about 9 years ago and I make it over the winter months and usually have some toast with it. The soup is really thick and a meal in itself.
Some photos of some of our neighbours up the road, aren't they cute!
Tonight Sienna requested a bath by candle light as she remembered when I was practising my "low light photography" and wanted to have the candles tonight. These are fake ones from the $2 shop which have a battery in them which is perfectly safe for her to have without supervision. My real candles were props used in my assignment for "low lighting" and she was my willing participant at the time. This also made for a lovely photo I thought. I took 11 shots and this was my best one which I'm happy with and the other 10 are "on the drawing room floor" so to speak.
While Sienna was having her bath James was putting together his Lego creation. He is amazing when it comes to instructions and does not need any help from his mother, thank goodness as I am not very good at instructions. I'm so proud of him when it comes to taking the time to work this stuff out. The photo with me is taken by pointing the camera directly into a really large mirror which is sitting on the floor leaning against the wall. It's one of the things on that long "to do list" to get it put up on the wall, but it is really heavy and has tiny keyhole hooks at the back with no margin for error. Must put it up before the first anniversary of moving into this house arrives which is very soon.
