A Sight I Know......

....... I will never tire of!

My children, in their pyjamas, fresh from the bath, dinner in their bellies, enjoying the last of the summer day.

This happens most evenings.

Stuart and I clean up from dinner, put the chooks to bed, run the bore hoses on the gardens, and chat. We too enjoy the only truly comfortable part of the daylight hours. It has been a dry, hot summer already.

When Stu brought home this wagon last week for only $30 from a hardware store that was closing down, I knew it was going to be a hit! It was an early Christmas present for the children.

And already they have played and pulled and climbed and rested and exercised and imagined with it.

Thank you Father for healthy, happy children who are growing up so quickly. I will never tire of watching them play!

If you look carefully Min, I swear I can see Banbi frolicking along next to Elijah!! Sitting here praying you're getting some of this rain!!! Thankyou to Saraya and Elijah for their lovely drawings etc. from Ellie and Harri. They loved getting their own mail!! I'm a little bit excited about a particular mystery parcel that arrived on my doorstep today!!! I'm showing great restraint and not opening it until Christmas - but in advance - thankyou, I love it!!!! I love you!!!

The simplest gifts are almost always the biggest treasures! Merriest Christmas, Saminda!!! :) We are getting like 6+ inches of snow to go on top of our 15 from last week! :0

God bless your sweet family, richly! :)

What fun they are having there! We also enjoy that time of day & milk it for all it's worth - although usually the kids are in bed as the sun isn't setting here until 9pm at the moment.
That wagon does look like fun - my kids would love playing in it!
In fact the twins are here talking about the pictures as I read your post!
Have a lovely day - enjoy your Christmas preperations!
Renata :)

What a wonderful wagon to play with. I think we should have given Nathan sticky tape and a box for Christmas - he would be in heaven.
Thank you for your beautiful card I received yesterday. I am so pleased to have met your family. Have a wonderful Christmas.
