Apples feast

After school (waiting for the daddy to come home and trying to keep the kiddies busy); we went to the bakery to buy a apple pie w/ a crusty paste and we baked our own apple cake. We surprised the daddy with a taste test. The winner is ....
The store-bought cake. My cake was beaten hard by the store-bought one, it was lacking the sugary glaze, the sugar powder and the sugary apples. Sigh...

Catch me if you can

I try to convince my kiddies to live in a more tidy and in a minimalistic way. They didn't buy it: more you have toys, more fun it gets according to them. How I see it, the more they have, the more time I spent to clean up. I don't give up yet. 
I teach them to have fun without having too much possession such as make a sand castle, play football or jump rope, observe insects, build a rocket with blocks, ... 
They came back with this.

Spoiling myself

The kiddies are getting slowly into their school routine despite a heat wave. We're attacked by mosquitos at night and are slippy during the day (if you have any tips for repelling mosquitos, I'm all ears but no chemicals. I'm looking for an approved old natural mosquitoes repellant). Today after running for school supplies and other activities supplies, I treat myself with a flower bouquet. A moment of madness! Maybe the heat is getting on my reason but it was very beautiful and it just makes me happy. How was your 1st school day?
