Liam's First Day of Year 1

Liam started school today, belatedly due to swine flu closures. It's a German tradition to present year 1 students with a "cone", filled with school supplies and treats, so earlier in the year I got together with some other parents to craft this one. Cones were presented, songs were sung, and Liam was beaming as he ripped into his. The kids were practically pushing parents out of the classroom so they could get started. A great day!

The best vacation ever...

Just returned from four weeks of hols...whirlwind tour of Paris, Darlo, the Lakes, Kelso, Edinburgh, and London. A good time was most certainly had by all. Highlights included Euro Disney and the Fringe, as well as the many, many playgrounds Europe has to offer...

Stay tuned for more pics!
