Date with Connor

Connor and I went on a mother-son date.

First we went to take photos of leaves - I decided the road was too busy so I rolled down the window and snapped a few, and then we went to have an early supper at Bedford.

Gorgeous light

One day the light was beautiful in the study so I gathered D and the kids to take some photos.

my mother asked me when I started allowing sweets (she thinks we're too strict - we say if you want to give them sweets, you have to babysit them!) but this is a throat lolly - lozenges for babies :)
Kendra had just woken from her nap - love her sweet sleepiness
I love these beautiful children so much!

Kendra's ballet clothes

Kendra and I went girl shopping for official ballet clothes.

She's been taking dance lessons since February. I still think it's a rip-off since all she can do is heel toe, heel toe.... but she does enjoy the dressing up!

They only wanted us to buy the clothes after a term had passed to be sure the little ones were still interested.

K & C Bedford Centre

at one point that girl in the background said to me, "the boy isn't being nice to his sister" :)

This set of photos was taken at the Bedford Centre after lunch one Saturday.

Kendra and Connor LOVE to walk on the steps around this little garden area.

She's perfecting that model face :)

Mothers Day tea at the school

Our first Mother's Day tea at the kids' school. It was a lovely warm morning and all the kids were just adorable.

Kendra and Connor's classes sang "5 pretty mommies" to the tune of "6 little ducks" which is on their toddler songs CD. Now when I try to sing the correct song Connor FREAKS out.


Caroline's and my kids - look at Connor's little tummy :)
