IN THESE SMALL HOURS
:: Easter crafting on sick days home from school
:: More bountiful harvest's
:: "Memi kaka"
:: A standard weekend lunch around these parts
:: My boys
:: Studying a cricket we captured
Not much happened around these parts last week with sickness being in the house and all. I'm happy to say that, apart from the odd cough, everyone is better, and well enough to run around in the dirt outside, enjoying this beautiful Autumn weather. Although the kids are tiring more quicker than usual, which has meant meltdowns and early bedtimes.
We had a mammoth weekend around the outside of the house, which meant little time for picture taking, bar a few progress shots. We had 12 cubic metres of roadbase delivered and have started to move that. Have you ever moved roadbase? We've done our fair share of shoveling and moving topsoil and mulch, but roadbase! If this doesn't get me some sexy shoulders nothing will!
I've finally settled on a name for my series of weekly stills that I link up with Emily at the Beetle Shack. I wanted to name the series something that represented what all of these moments captured mean to me, as snippets of a very normal week, that I would like to look back on someday and smile at their wonder. When I thought about that, I also thought of a song by Rob Thomas, Little Wonders
Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours
These small hours
With everything else that moves around us, the chaos, the routine, the school drop offs, the laundry, these moments are how I want to remember our time together. Our lives truly are made, in these small hours.
As always, linking up with Em at The Beetle Shack
