I think back about the weekend now and realized that I’m photo-poor, but the memories are good.
It’s a long weekend, as Monday is the Labour Day public holiday, and Jeremiah had planned a hunting trip with the Brotherhood.
We started out Friday evening with Milo’s first soccer practice of the summer season. Naomi is such a good sport about being toted around to Milo’s activities; I guess as a second born she knows no different. We “hung out” on the playground. That’s all the more exciting when I remember that a couple months ago I couldn’t hang at all.
Saturday we met friends at Hagley Park. The photo in this gigantic beech tree was taken just seconds before a park employee told us off for tree climbing. “There’s actually a law saying you can’t climb the trees in the park,” he informed us, though not unkindly. That’s ok. I’m just thrilled that I CAN climb trees again.
A couple weeks ago we met some friends who had painted some rocks and were hiding them around the park for other people to find. Apparently there’s a Christchurch Rocks facebook page, and you can photograph the rocks you find and put them up. Anyway, Milo and Naomi have been industriously painting a small cohort of rocks and we distributed some of them. It’s a hard concept for a kid–to leave your precious painted art for someone else to find and move….
Guess what kind of flowers THESE are?
Chestnut. Pink ones with snazzy yellow centers, how fancy!
Sunday, between looking at houses for sale, we did a little walk up to Sugarloaf from Sign of the Kiwi. Glorious day for it, and the kids were wearing their good attitudes.
And Monday we made the trek out to Tumbledown Bay with some other friends.
I’m sure we’ll see more of these types of photos once Jeremiah gets home. He got his first trout on the fly rod, and was one happy camper.
