Joining in...

Expect to see a few blog posts featuring me "joining in" on various blog activities, as I try to get to know other bloggers :)...

Kate at Picklebums is a font of inspirations, so I'm starting with an activity she joined in from Life in a Pink Fibro called Weekend Rewind.

So, the topic is April...

April 2006 was, in hindsight, a HUGE month for our family...  We went on our first - and so far only - family holiday!  My grandmother died.  But probably the brightest moment that month was when BABY Bryn cut his first tooth!  Goodness, he was soooo darn cute back then - and he still is, but in just two days time he'll be starting school, and is impatiently waiting to LOSE his first tooth!

April 2007 we received our first ever school photos of Erik and Luey, who had started school that February aged, 7.5 and 5.5.

April 2008 saw another "first photo" taken, this time of baby Ari (who we didn't know was an Ari, and thought might be a Disa).

April 2009 I got to know the main character of my Masters thesis novel - Lily.  Characters are like real people to me, who live "somewhere out there" and who I have to get to know, like I would have to get to know anyone I met for the first time.

April 2010 We spent out first Easter in the new house, and we had our first Egg Hunt, ever (because, I can be a bit of a slack mum when it comes to traditions other parents do without thinking twice!)...

I'm really hoping this coming April brings our second family holiday ever, and maybe even a road trip holiday!!!
