Wadi Bih 2017

This weekend our yearly family run: Wadi Bih 2017.
The wind tried to make us quit and ... we almost did!

Omar was blown away by heavy wind blowing through the wadi, he got lifted and slide over the road till he was stopped by some rocks on the side of the road. 

We continued to run, after the majority of the family wanted to give it a try. The wind was less heavy inside the smaller part of the Wadi and it got easier to run. We finished the full 52km in just over 5 hours. For the first time ever Felix did about 1.5 kilometers on his own and another 1.5 kilometer with mum. At the end we faced rain and the temperatures were very cold with a minimum of 9˚C.

Back home we found a lot of flower pots blown away by the wind.

Wadi Bih 2017: once again a great memory.

She rediscovered a skirt in her cabinet that hasn't been worn too much when it fitted her. All of a sudden she does like it but now the skirt became to small.
So we changed the original waistband for a stretchable one.

Everybody happy!

Four years ago

Four years ago, he blew out 1 candle. Therefore his godmother received a notebook, decorated with a handprint, a footprint, some scribbles, a picture,... The notebook was wrapped in a fabric cover.
Sweet memories.

Rainy days

Rainy days! We hope we would be spared this year, nevertheless we came to Belgium prepared. Two hoodies for Jade who appeared to be too small went straight to Felix. The first print was luckily unisex and highly appreciated by our little man.

The second hoody is made from mint-light-petroleum-blue fabric with glitter (silver speckle). The brothers of Felix can't stop laughing that he is wearing a 'girls jumper' but Felix loves his new hoody.

Jade got a consolation prize, a long-sleeves-Tshirt-style jumper in fabric of her own choice. The promised glitter hoody for Jade will be sewed when we have time to buy new glitter fabric in her favorite color, blue!

Lack of privacy

A lack of privacy for our eldest made us renovate a piece of the corridor. A necessary, creative but not 100% ideal solution (very hot because there is no AC).

Sleeping corner.

Studying corner. Well social life is important as well.

Read-hang-launch-watch-gossip area.

The ladder gives access to the technical area on the roof and with things breaking down at least ones per week, it is not possible to remove the ladder. The decorations make up for it.

The lack op privacy is still a problem, as all siblings now consider the coolest place to hang out they constantly want to sit in this room .... Argh being the eldest is not easy!!

Leotard number two

Same design, different colors.
I do not like glitter/metallic fabrics and I really do not like (FAKE) Swarovski diamonds. But if I do not add them the girls do not wear the homemade leotards. So not a lot of options left.

She looks sad, but is just tired. Not a good idea to ask to show her new leotard at 10pm.
