21-27 september

The monday photo is of a little gypsy boy, he looks sad, and monday was a sad day for me too. The tuesday photo is of Mean taking a shower. Only showing a silhouette. Wednesday is a plant I have on the roof of a little shed on our property, I planted it myself years ago. Thursday is Mean drawing at the kitchen table. Friday is the big photo, I played with my big lens and this is one of the apples in our orchard. Saturday is Mean blowing bubbles with her niece. Sunday we took a walk in the forest, and Mean and Shen pointed at this mushroom, saying "look mom, a baby mushroom!". We had lots of fun walking with our dogs and others of the dog training school.

14-20 september

On Tuesday daddy and Shen had a haircut, and Mean got some colour in her hair. She loved it. On Saturday I sprayed some gold in her hair, and that looked great too. On Wednesday my magnetic stickers for my car came, with info about our dog training school. They are really great on my red car. On Thursday grandma picked the apples of our two trees near the pond at the dog training field, the ones that were great are in our cellar now, the ones that where a bit less great are in the cupboard to eat asap, and the rest Is gone into apple-sauce. On Friday we had a BBQ at the school of the kids. It’s a small school (25 kids in total for 8 grades) and all parents know each other. The weather was really nice, and we had a very nice evening together. On Sunday we went to see the baby of friends, and Mean and Shen played in the playground where the party was.

7-13 september

A normal week in my life. I took some photos of normal events, our little Joly on the bed of Mean (she sleeps there every night), the sun through the trees in our garden (loved the light and experimenting with my camera), and on wednesday the sky was so wonderfully colored, I had to take some pictures of it. Wednesday and Thursday I had a computer course in XML, I photographed the building on thursday. When I went to pick up the kids at school (no other children where having lunch, so I could go back to home immediately) I took a photo of the lifesize paper Mean on the window at her classroom. Unfortunately the paper Shen had already been gone… The photo of saturday is of our Felyce, eating an apple in the garden. The apples are falling, and the dogs eat them all the time. Sunday started with some rain, and while Mean and daddy had gone off with Kyona and Joly to train for searching, Shen and I stayed home. He read the toy store book (it had already arrived at my mothers’ house for Sinterklaas) and watched some TV. I took this funny shot of him.

31 august - 6 september

Autumn is starting here, the weather is getting colder, and our life is going on like before the holidays.

On Monday Mean started practicing her flute all by herself. She can play from notes a little already. In a few weeks she will start a beginners course in music (for children), she is really looking forward to go. On Tuesday a digiscrap friend from a city nearby visited to learn more about it. She brought her daughter, and she had a real talent for it! We had lots of fun and made great progress (at least, I hope J ). On Wednesday Mean has her horse riding lessons, and when I picked her up I found her scooping the horse poop. Thursday I didn’t want to cook, so I bought Chinese food from the local Chinese restaurant. On Friday I was so tired, I went to bed early, and while preparing I took this picture of our waterbed. On Saturday Mean and I travelled for almost 3 hours to meet with other Cambodian adopted children and go to a Cambodian party. It was great fun! On Sunday I had a Rally-O tournament not so far away (45 minutes drive) and it was very nice with friendly people and nice weather.
