The weekend was dominated by the school fair. Given how much effort went into it all (by everyone involved) all I could find on the camera was this photo of the herbs we picked from the garden. There were several late nights brewing up cumquat marmalade (fruit picked from our little tree and our other source). It's amazing how a rather small bunch of families manage to do so much, and it is nice to be part of it all.
The rest of the weekend passed in a more relaxed fashion, with kitchen bath-time
a new rider in the family
Summer planting starting......I promise there are tiny tomato plants in there somewhere. The zucchini is not under house arrest just protected from the chooks and blackbirds.
and the start of this years bean crop, a teepee like structure that I hope will eventually be covered in beans not sheets off the kids bed!
The requests for dance class have been consistent for about 2 years now....perhaps I figured they would stop if it was just a phase. Mostly it has been my reluctance and low-grade horror when looking at the images on various dance forms/websites of little girls wearing excessive make-up. Now with a friend teaching a ballet class we have begun.
