Posted on the Solstice, not about it (we were rushing the ritual to avoid getting rained on hard and to get the kids home to bed — and we don’t usually take pictures at rituals, anyway). Here are some pictures from late winter and spring. I managed to get back to work and do many fun things, so pictures just kind of accumulated.
These three adorn my office wall:
Oscar at Powerscourt, being Oscar.
Ada in the school yard at Trille des Bois, where the kids have gone for Parent and Child group.
Vivien being independent.
Ada being adventurous.
Oscar mid-exploration at the Biodome.
Ada and me, dressed for a sort-of-wedding.
Elizabeth and Ada outside the feast (at my sister and her partner's unsanctioned wedding-like event).
Ada on her birthday. Birthday suit pics don't do on the Internet...
Viv enjoying her new camp chair thoroughly.
Viv in the umpire box at the local baseball diamond, or as she calls it, King Agatha's castle.
Ada investigating soccer.
Oscar and cute baby chick at the Ormstown Fair.
Viv didn't like all the rides, but this one was good.
Ada at a pool party!
