Ben's first day at School

What a brilliant experience. A lovely 3min stroll down the road with the boys & their back packs & the neighbourhood kids. Ben ran to his class - so so ready for today. He chatted away to the other boy waiting in line outside his class & when the teacher came, he never looked back. A few mum tears but nothing major (we both must have been ready).

He was lucky enough to get the bus home & as you can see in the photo he came bounding off the bus with so much excitement.

Crystal Mountain & Mt Rainer

Brilliant day trip from home - bit of a Sunday drive experience.

With the added extra of.. play at the rivers edge & climbing up to the winter ski field Crystal Mountain where we could catch the chair lift up to the summit. From there we had absolutely stunning views over to Mt Rainer which is next to it. Will so be back to Crystal for the ski season as only 2hrs from home.
