Think the weather is beginning to turn, more grey, drizzly weather. Even had to use the heater a couple of times this week...

walking in the rain

Johanna has a short walk to college, through a beautiful park. This morning it was raining...

road race

Watched my nephew race from Longford to Campbell Town (58 km) this afternoon. He finished second in his division.

Hayden coming up on the outside

Leading the pack

Still a way to go

A little countryside appreciation along the way as we stopped at various points to watch the riders progress.

A late lunch in Campbell Town by the historic bridge,

And we couldn't resist. Big kids (Johanna and Hayden),

And even bigger kids (my sister and I)

A dreary, grey and drizzly day yesterday. The flowers Colin bought for me on the weekend were in full bloom.

what mothers do

Wanted to try once more to capture something of the bond between mother and baby, figured I could improve on yesterday's effort. And it was a good excuse to spend a lot of time watching monkeys, feel a bit like a stalker...

what mothers do:

they feed you

they carry you

they keep you safe

they hold you

they hug you

they make you feel special

they watch you like a hawk

 they encourage you to be independent

they are a role model

they adore you

And at the end of the day they rest with you
