Rainy days! We hope we would be spared this year, nevertheless we came to Belgium prepared. Two hoodies for Jade who appeared to be too small went straight to Felix. The first print was luckily unisex and highly appreciated by our little man.
The second hoody is made from mint-light-petroleum-blue fabric with glitter (silver speckle). The brothers of Felix can't stop laughing that he is wearing a 'girls jumper' but Felix loves his new hoody.
Jade got a consolation prize, a long-sleeves-Tshirt-style jumper in fabric of her own choice. The promised glitter hoody for Jade will be sewed when we have time to buy new glitter fabric in her favorite color, blue!
When the kids grow up and are chosen to participate in an exchange project with school than,....
1. Firstly you grow by pride.
2. Secondly you shout from the rooftops how important it is to let them go and spread their wings.
3. Thirdly when they are all packed and ready to get in the airplane you just want to hold them tight and not let them go.
Dear Louka, enjoy this amazing experience and your time in the USA. The pictures we have received make us happy and show you are having a great time! The cooler temperatures and green environment seems a breath of fresh air after many hot school years out in the desert.
Dear Mrs K and dear Mrs A, thank you for embracing our girl as if she was your daughter and P thank you for being a great company and caring as a brother. Don't forget to send her back, we miss her!
The kids' first gymnastics competition abroad! So they really needed matching tracksuits to get the team spirit going.
Making the outfits was a race against time. Before departure there was no time left to take pictures of the tracksuit. So thinking we could do this at our destination we did not stress about the blogpost just yet. At our destination the weather seemed just to warm for jumpers so we didn't get the full outfit on pictured so we decided to take pictures back home. In our bathroom the light seemed to be the best.
The girls got a Julia sweater and the boys a Leather Sweater. Oh boy those two patterns are a delight.
Easy to cut and to assemble, and a really gorgeous result.
The girls got a pair of our favorite gym pants, Alasya, and the boys a Randy pants. Overall the boys outfit was more work because we added a small green detail in the seams. Blue, green and white are the colors of the club and the kids looked really cool.
What started of as a 'normal' photoshoot quickly degenerated in a bathtub gymnastics session!
Apparently the bath suits perfectly as parallel bar ...
As a balance beam ...
But also acrobatic gymnastics is an option in our bathtub ...
Hilarious our sporty -and also slightly crazy- kids.
Lebanon, here we come!
As we have already spammed you with the outfit pictures, we will post the pictures of the trip itself later.
