Isla turned six months, we bought a brand new high chair, and decided to give it a go. It didn’t stay sparkling white for long…
Well, es ist soweit – the little surprise bean that prompted the start of this blog started school!
In Western Australia, “kindy” starts when you’re 3 if your birthday is before June or 4 if your birthday is after June. Or something like that. I dunno, it’s bloody confusing, all I know is, Scarlett has an August birthday which meant she started kindy this year, not last. Kindy is usually part time and can be done at a primary school or community kindergarten. Scarlett is going to her local primary school where she’ll likely be continuing her schooling, and is doing five full days a fortnight.
We spent lots of time talking about how exciting it was to start school and we even got to meet her teacher in her classroom, so when the day came she was mostly excited with a little bit of nervousness thrown in. I knew that she was so beyond ready for this though and sure enough she kissed me goodbye happily and had a great day :-). She has been settling in wonderfully and the teacher has told me she is “an old soul” and “unique” (in a good way :-P).
Naturally I took a few photos to document the occasion :-) Aussie primary school kids usually wear school uniforms. I think it’s freaking adorable!
Time to resurrect my poor wee higglety pigglety blog! This year I’m participating in a 10 on 10 blog circle with some talented ladies - basically we each publish 10 images on the 10th of each month, with free reign as to what those images are. It should at least get me blogging again!
With the addition of my little munchkin Isla to the family (I really must blog about that sometime soon!), I felt it was only fitting that my first 10 on 10 post be of my wee sisters, who adore each other and keep me busy.
Once you’ve viewed my little crazies, it would be awesome if you’d click through to the 10 on 10 submission of the incredibly talented Marta Musa and continue to follow the circle to see more takes on our project!
Also, there are actually 11 images here. Because I suck at rules. Sorry not sorry.
Well, here we are, arrived back in Perth and before we knew it, Christmas was upon us! Scarlett enjoyed putting out food for Santa and the reindeer, and woke up to lots of pressies under the tree. Unfortunately Adam had to work in the afternoon, so I decided to take Scarlett to the beach which was just beautiful and was the perfect was to spend Christmas evening.
Because we’re living in a temporary furnished apartment, I don’t have my computer to edit digital photos, so I decided to shoot a roll of film on Christmas day. I shot this roll of Fuji Superia 400 in my Canon Elan IIe and these are straight scans from a local camera shop. They aren’t perfect and some of the colours are a bit funky but I’m not going to adjust them. Cos you know what, film is imperfect and a bit funky and that is the fun of it. I’m tired of always questing after perfection in my photography. This year I’m aiming for less perfection and more fun and creative freedom!
