Finally I have finished my first ever knitted sweater. It's a good thing I stuck with the smallest kid! It took a couple of tries to get the whole thing stitched up, but we got there in the end. I also cast off the collar too tightly, so had to unpick a seam and I'll add a button. Joshua is thrilled, after months of hovering over me asking if it's done yet. Of course, the extreme cold snap we experienced last week is over now, but the sleeves are so long he'll get a couple of winters out of it.

A boy and his dog. Joshua adores dogs, real or ootherwise. How can you resist such a cute pair of 'puppies'?

Cold and tired here. I feel bad for not updating lately, but life has been getting in the way.

Last night Christopher (and the Australian Youth Choir) sang with the Keystone State Boys Choir, who are touring Australia at the moment. It was a fabulous concert. The boys sing so beautifully, and the integration of movement into the performance really added to the overall effect. Not to mention the fact that it's darn hard to keep boys still! They seemed impressed with our choir, and made a very big deal about the boys who are involved. Boys are very much outnumbered in our choir. It was good, I think, for our boys to meet such an enthusiastic male choir. In all it was just amazing. Voices like angels!

We're having a slow start this morning, as it was such a late night.
