25/52. Rockstar.  Yes you are! You strum that ukulele like it’s your very own electric guitar. Best Christmas gift ever Grandma. The hair suits it well. We’ll have to get a few playing tips, but in the mean time keep rocking it baby!IMG_3542.R2

52 Portraits Project – 24/52

Still in the middle of school holidays and all that means for my tasks!  Welcome to week twenty-four of my 52 Portraits Project.  If you have missed the earlier weeks start at week 1 here, which includes more information about the project.

24/52. Competition.  At the moment it seems like everything is a competition for you two. Who is better, who gets more, who do we love more, who will win. I love your competitive spirit, your go hard or go home attitude. I do hope that one day you will realise that working together rather than against each other will be more satisfying. Not just as sisters, but also in life.24.competition

52 Portraits Project – 23/52

23/52. Camping. Our first ever family camping trip. It was a massive success. Miraculously we fit everything in the car, including the new tent, stove and camp table & stools. There were 9 adults, 10 kids and a fair few ducks. You and the kids held a vigil for the dying duckling but alas the kookaburra got it in the end. Perhaps its kids were hungry, you said. You floated upstream on your boogie board and ran around like a crazy thing, and then 10 of you practiced your yoga moves on fence posts – very impressive. You said the best thing about camping was that you felt free. I see many more camp trips in our future.23.Camping

22/52. Beauty. The technician and the talent. This speaks so much of who you both are right now. Experimenting with big girls toys and relishing in the process and the result. Have fun, but always know it’s what you already are that is the most beautiful.22.Beauty

21/52. Tradition. Going to the Local Christmas Carols has become a much anticipated annual event. This year the sun shone, the sky was clear, the picnics were packed, the wine (concealed), the mood festive and the fireworks impressive. So many events have become family traditions, and this is one that will continue for at least a few years to come.21.Carols

Welcome to week twenty (WoooHooo) of my 52 Portraits Project.  If you have missed the earlier weeks start at week 1 here, which includes more information about the project.

20/52. Chef. We are a family who loves to cook, and watch TV shows about cooking.  Rachel you have inherited your mum and dad’s love of food, handed down from my mum and my gran.  One day we will cook Ukrainian food together.  While other kids can name singers and boy bands, you know the TV celebrity chefs and their specialty.  So how excited were we to find Adriano Zumbo (your hero) had released a do-it-at-home version of his famous macarons.  And your favourite flavour – salted caramel.  They may not have looked exactly like the cafe variety but they tasted soooooo gooood!

19/52. Little. I forget that you are still so little, but also growing, maturing, experiencing and becoming more aware of the world every day.  But you are still so little.  I need to remind myself to be gentle with you but also to honour you as the thoughtful, courageous, empathetic girl you are and are becoming.  But you are still so little.  I cherish those moments where I still feel that.  One day you will want more of your private space, and your private time, deep in your own thoughts.  I love that I can still sit and watch you in the bath, free and innocent and capture a glimpse of the baby you were and the girl you are.  My sweet little one.

18/52. Show Time. You love to put on a show for us and if it involves the neighbours and their dog – all the better. You made a ticket and set out seats and the mums and little sisters arrived spot on 5.30pm. You demonstrated dog skills and tricks with your “willing” accomplice. You shared the limelight and even had audience participation. The finale needed some work, but you had fun, and so did we. I love your ideas, your planning, your confidence and your spirit.

52 Portraits Project – 17/52

Welcome to week seventeen of my 52 Portraits Project.  If you have missed the earlier weeks start at week 1 here, which includes more information about the project.

17/52. Art. A little bit of culture at Sculpture By the Sea in Bondi. You both loved it. Walking down the path, spotting the next amazing creation, sometimes almost hidden in the landscape and becoming part of it. You would talk about what it reminded you of, and you would touch it, feel it, enjoy it and marvel at it. It reminded me of all the galleries my mum used to drag us to as a kid, and how grateful I am now for all of that. Your Gran was an artist, a creator, a fine art university graduate and art teacher. My wish is that you love and value art, as much as you do the other things life throws at you.
