School holidays are here - it's the end of the school year and we have 7 weeks of hols till school start in Jan. The boys are home - and that means trouble!! Well, I've been getting like 10 calls in one morning when I'm at work - to settle disputes, listen to their complaints about the other, trying to make things "fair" ..etc! I need to find them something to do! Then I had a great idea, for 3 days they sorted through all their toys, into piles to give away, to throw away, and into neat / sorted to play piles. I told them if there is no space for new toys, then there will be no new toys (for christmas)!! It worked!
To their surprise they found so much they thought were gone forever, or had even forgotten. Jared found so many of his Lego mini-figures, he was delighted! And I had fun too playing mix and match with their hats, weapons, body suits, etc... haha this is the lot of the poor mama who has no daughters nor barbie to play with . lol!
Well, I am really coming to the end of my US trip photos. In fact, just in time, because in 10 days we are leaving for our first ever trip to Japan!!!I know it's recession and all that, but we booked it before the financial crisis played out, and also we had frequent flyer miles from our last trip, so it was not as expensive as it could have been. And we really scrimped and saved for it!
These photos are from our last day at Universal Studios - the wonderfully whimsical Dr Seuss Land.Credits: Pink paper by Ziggles Designs, lined paper by Robin Carlton, alpha by Lauraskathi, flowers by cinnamondesigns.
And then these photos are from our last day back in Washington, spent exploring Harpers' Ferry - am almost surreal time, quietly and thoughtfully spent, compared to the breakneck pace of the last week in Orlando!Credits: Paper from Faith Sisters Collab, leaves by Kim B, all other elements by cinnamon designs
