My very own Karate Kid.

Purple belt! Hi-Ya!

What's with the eyeballs though. He gets embarrassed when I take his picture in public, so he is always like, "Come ON, Mommy! Please just take the picture!"

I am so wanting to get a new digital camera. Mine is three years old. And it is just not cutting le moutard anymore. It takes fifteen minutes to recover from taking one picture. So you are waiting, your subject has run away or flown away or is looking away, and then SNAP! You get a lovely pic of the back of a head.

I am up early! Already had me shower and it is 6:55 am! And the kids are all still asleep, although I can hear some stirring of little limbs.

Yesterday my front lawn was littered with children.

Here is Lucy getting a ride in her royal vehicle from her ladies in waiting, Julia and Paulina.

Of course I got the boys to make a pyramid for my personal fun and amusement.

And then I made them hold one leg up to see who could do it the longest. Then we had races.

Now. I am not usually outside like this with the kids. I am like most other parents, except a little bit lazier, I think. I like to hang in the house and hope that nobody bugs me just like everyone else.

But I am noticing that with Monty being older and wanting to be outside, and Lucy just loves being outside, that my 'house time' is seriously being cut back. Wahh!

It's probably a good thing. Gets me off me arse, off the phone, and engaged with the kids.

At least until the little ones are older and can play outside by themselves. Then I am back in my lair with a vengeance.

How many more years before she doesn't need anyone to push her and she can just drop in to say 'hi'.

Kara will be driving in FOUR years!

The grass is so nice and green! Australia is in a drought (for the last eight years) so we don't get to see much grass like that. Also, is it just my computer or does the woman in the background have a glowing eye? And way to go on the purple belt Sam!

Kalki- yeah, I can't believe he hasn't insisted on quitting yet.

Lawbrat/dawn- That was only half the boys, next time I will do twelve person pyramid.

Kristine- 4 years! That is crazy.

Bente- sorry you have no green grass! And yikes! You're right, her eye is from outer space.

such beautiful kids!!!

I've been thinking of starting my son in Shao-lin next year, I hope that he'll do as well as your son :)

I am impressed with your outside time. It's so hard for me to give up the E! True Hollywood Stories to take my son outside to play.

love the pics aim - your love of the pyramid is crazy! especially when you insist that we form one in our advanced age - like last year!

Good job, Karate Kid, kick some butt!

At 9:10 PM, Blogger Amy said...

KC- Wahh! I don't get E-true hollywood stories! I want E hollywood stories!

Jen- I know. What is wrong with me that I enjoy watching people climb on each other and then fall to the ground in agony?

Plum- Yes. It would be good if he kicked someones butt. Preferably someone his own age, and not his four year old brother, for a change.

hye-ya! from me to you...
my honey-man's angel boy-O just began taking karate a couple months ago...my honey-man will call me on the phone, standing outside the workroom in the hallway and I can distinctly hear HIS boy-O's voice yelling his hye-ya's well over and above the volume of all others
