A Birthday and A Carnival
Last week two big events happened for our family.
The first was the birthday of our youngest child, Quinn. There were mountains of presents.
Which were ripped open and enjoyed with great gusto.
Big brother and sister didn’t miss out on the action either.
We had a quiet day at home, playing with the new toys. Ok, so it was quiet in the sense that we didn’t plan anything or go anywhere, quiet in a house with three kids usually only happens when they’re all in bed ;).
There was the obligatory cake, the first one I have made in the woodfire stove that actually rose properly.
Nothing flash, but there were sprinkles and pirate candles so he was happy.
Happy Birthday little man 🙂
The second event was the two older kids competing in their first school athletics carnival.
Because the kids school is only small they team up with a number of small schools from the area for their athletics carnival.
Throughout the year they have events with these same schools, helping them to build friendships and get to know other kids who are in their local area and will be going to highschool with them.
The kids had a really fun day,
although Quinn was completely over it by the end.
The big surprise for all of us was how well Leo did. Not because he’s not athletic but because he’s never competed in anything like this before.
So, Leo was somewhat shocked at the end of the day when his name was called…..
