Steps on Water, Land, and Air


The picture below, taken of the route to J’s school a full day after the rains had stopped, is one that should have been used for the previous post.  It gives some idea that getting the kids to school had not been for sissies when the lake had been at its limit; that is, covering an area which would fill this frame from base to the walls either side, and nearly up to the stop street. The poor school guard had to get to work by this route, and spent the day with wet shoes, socks and trousers.

I had to collect J twice during this period, once after ballet, and once after her Monkeynastics training. She takes to both of these extremely well.

    Love the ballet photos ♥
    Here they don’t allow people to take photos of children during swimming lessons, etc. due to people sharing on social media, which is such a pity.

      It is always so hard, with internet and social media, to know what is safe to share and what isn’t. I used to err on the side of paranoid caution. Now, perhaps, I am tending to go too far in the other direction. *sigh*
