The Little Joys of Summer

Summer is arriving to India once more. We didn’t think we’d be here for another summer but here we are all the same.┬áDespite the heat and daily temperatures of 30 – 32C, it isn’t technically summer yet. It’s not even technically hot yet, seeing as in a month, temperatures will reach highs of over 40C.

Since we are leaving at the end of the month, lots of prep is going on. We promised the person who bought the dining set that we’d have it varnished for them, so today the person who is working on it took all the chairs, meaning there was nowhere to sit for school time.

So I gave the kids the day off from school, and this is what they did this morning.



I can’t think of a greater summer joy than sitting in the warm sun, wet from water play, eating a large bowl of ice-cold watermelon.

Some New Pics

Here they are, the pics you’ve been waiting for.

Cool cats! I love this one.

Ready to pray before sleep.

Here is the new haircut from the front…

and back. Not bad for my second try at giving him a cool style.

He is quite good at the wooden puzzles. He loves taking the pieces out and bringing them to me.

Playing in the toy basket.

Swimming fun. It was actually a chlorinated pool, but the material it was built out of made the water look brown. Logan is playing in the overflow spot. It was just the right size and depth for him. He wasn’t so happy going in the deeper water with daddy.
