Tuesday,or, Strike,strike,strike!

Yep, its a teacher strike. Which means my beloved 5 children are all home with me-hubby at work. AND its raining,which means my beloved 5 children are cooped up and going stir crazy inside trying to occupy themselves.  Luka is snotty and feverish and miserable,and has been calling ‘muuuum’  all day in a whiny but adorable voice:) Cleaning the turtle tank occupied us for about half an hour.


Im sure Stanley,Percy and Gary appreciate their clean tank,but they had to put up with Jai and Luka ‘turtlesitting’ them, which must have been terrifying!


And yes,I realise the boys are still in their pjs and my turtles have odd names. They apparently play with cars too


Yesterday I went to mums to get a few shots of the boys. Luka co-operated quite nicely-without being covered in  dog slobber this time-


but i think he needs a haircut…bad…


And there was a few nice shots of the boys, this is my favourite,though not for the reasons you may think…boysoutside2

Luka is kindly informing me he needs a nappy change,wasnt it a happy day when he learnt to say ‘pooooooo’ accompanied by hands waving at his nose. And even though this picture –probably-  wont go into a frame, i love the fact that i have got a record of so many of his funny little ways!

Since you have all seen our dogs,in previous posts, and now the turtles –they are Macquarie Short necked Turtles- here is our other baby, 18 month old Frodo, our dwarf Miniature Shetland. Luka and Frodo love each other so much, and at 42cms, Frodo is the perfect size!


even for riding-check out the knee grip, my awesome little horseman!


Speaking of Luka , my whiny,snotty,hot son is up after a 5 second nap….



Coming my son!

You are a beautiful photographer.

And I'm feeling for you - 5 kids at home on a rainy day? I can barely handle 2!
