Luke: started school this week and he loves it!

In Germany, on their first day of school children receive a cardboard cone (Schultuete), prettily decorated and filled with toys, sweets, school supplies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter.

(Canon EOS 550D, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-100)

Max: always in motion. (Canon EOS 550D, f/3.5, 1/320 sec, ISO-1600).

I wanted to share this sweet picture of my two boys. Surprisingly Max is loving having time with Mama for most of the day and he has fallen into a rhythm with his nap again, giving me the chance to catch-up on blogging, emails, work, knitting, etc.

40-52-lukeLuke: my gorgeous boy has had a few hard weeks, he is really not dealing well with the change of moving, missing his friends, not being in Kindergarten, etc…so the fact that we move to our own place next week where he will be king of the castle again should really help! (Canon EOS 550D, f/5, 1/60 sec, ISO-100).

37-52-lukeLuke: this one…he has been amazing in how he’s taken on our move across the continent, but other times the 5 1/2 year old comes out and we have major meltdowns. Being more settled once we find our own place and get back to a proper routine (and less TV) will be much better for him! (taken on my Nexus phone camera).

Max: TEMPTATION!!!! (taken on my Nexus phone camera).
