Puppies.... and some other stuff


We've been busy, busy with puppies
and projects.

Lu is working on a research project
about the Ancient Maya,
and making great progress despite
the computer room also being a puppy nursery.


A friend recently brought us Momo by Michael Ende
(author of Never Ending Story)

Lu is loving this book! 


It's about an orphan girl who lives in an abandoned park,
something about "the men in gray",
and a weird street where time warps...

I haven't actually read the book, but Lu's been
telling me all about it and it sounds pretty trippy.

 This coming week is our last before a three week break.


Which fits perfectly with the puppies just starting
to become a handful.


The river was running strong,
so we went out to build our annual dam
for a swim hole.






 Lu's been doing "Circuit Training" for P.E.
We come up with a 3-minute circuit
and he goes through it as many times as he can.

(and there's a window from our bedroom
to the dance studio because... 
it seemed like a good idea when we were building?)








The puppies had their first outing
into the yard the other day,
and felt sunshine for the first time!
