Busy weekend

On Friday night Madison had her first ballet concert. It was in a proper theatre with a huge stage, lights, curtain and expensive tickets! She was wonderful, performed her 2 minutes beautifully and had a great time. (And yes, that is eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and lots and lots of hairspray!)
On Saturday morning it was Sam's turn. His first proper birthday party. His best friend, Arnav, was turning four and was having a super hero party. Sam went as Spiderman with Mickey Mouse and Rudolph the Reindeer for support (and Jane and Madison too). It took him awhile to warm up and join in but thought the real-live Batman was hilarious. And of course by the time the party was over Sam was just settling in.

In the afternoon we decorated the Christmas Tree.

Another first ... Madison headed around the corner to a friend's place for her first sleepover. With this heat I don't think she'll be needing the sleeping bag!

Last weekend

Madison has been studying Baha'i in scripture this year and we thought it would be fun to visit the Baha'i Temple. It was their children's day with lots of food, face painting and craft. But it was really hot so we headed home to ....

get cool.
