“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”


ethan: you are having a seriously good year at rugby.  you have settled into your position in the front row, finally, and are using your huge strength and power they way we knew you always could.  your school team won all three games in the first round of this years comp and look set to continue this streak into the next two rounds. 


nixon: you don’t particularly enjoy the shouting and excitement of being on the sidelines at rugby so we hang out on the far side of the field where you can cheer your brother on in your own special way  – by eating all of his food and messing with the field markers!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. These photos are particularly awesome. I love Ethan's fend – a real action shot – and then Nix with the cone in his mouth made me giggle out loud! Hope you're well. xxx

  2. Great photo's!! Go Ethan, what a great and proud season for you all :). Cute outtle button on the sidelines… Looks like he's directing the team xxx

  3. I think God has to have a sense of humor to put up with us without gintetg fed up and lobbing a few comets at us (I consider the platypus proof that He does).I personally think the reason the children of Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years was that Moses and Aaron, being men, refused to ask for directions. 🙂
