The Atlas has got his crafty on! He’s made over a bike our bro-in-law left him when they moved to Holland. Was an old school 10-speed now a new school single speed commuter – oh ah! So proud of my crafty man (not that he likes it to be called craft of course!).
Our local Kindy Challenge-a-thon – So cute. Little Bounce had to complete physical challenges – Flip joined in too.
The shoes came from Korea – he adores them and calls them his ‘splishy-splashy shoes’!! I get the odd sideways look about them. Yes he is doing the rope bridge with his ‘library bag’ in hand and his shorts completely twisted round as well – this kid is AWESOME!!
I’m inspired by all the great costumes I’ve discovered doing my ‘research’ for the Mad Men costume challenge (see the button on the right). I’ve never watched Mad Men but my the costumes are awesome. Due to my self-imposed fabric embargo I think I’ll just do a ‘inspired by’ rather than a proper copy.
Here’s my pinterest board for dresses here – not all Mad Men inspired but some are.
Flip also completed his first duathlon this week at school – 5 hardy/enthusiastic boys did both and the rest in teams (he did both!)
Loving that Flip has started his first adventure into learning music – violin – using my old violin (hopefully he makes more progress than I did!)
Loving that both my boys love listening to audio books.
Mostly I’m loving the things that make me smile most of all – The Atlas, Flip and Bounce – my cup is full people.
(although I am seriously craving the sugar I have decided to give up for lent! seriously do not walk past me with a bar of fairtrade chocolate or I may have to punch you.)
