Are you sure it's summer ?

December 1st is supposed to be the first day of Summer in Australia, but it  hasn't stopped raining for days, so after we make Dad and Matthew take us for a walk in the pouring rain (!), we put some warm clothes.


The poncho and hat are from Peru; Mum went there went she was little and she'd love to go back !


Melbourne has its wettest year since 1996 which is good because we had such a long drought, but it is in the middle of a "thunderstorm asthma" epidemic caused by pollen grains bursting in humid conditions. Mom has had asthma attacks and hayfever and our sister was doing her year 12 exams, so we haven't been able to blog or visit our friends' blog very much lately. Wen look forward to catching up soon and showing you photos of our Christmas decorations and costumes.



We've received some really nice postcards from our friends :
Booker Man and asa sent us  a card from their hike, what a lovely place ! Our Mom and Dad met while they were hiking in the French Alps; they love hiking, the mountains here in Australia are a bit far, but there are some lovely spots we go to during our vacations.


Lorenza sent us a card from Torreon, in Mexico. When can go to visit her ?


There are some beautiful flowers in Michigan where Oskar lives.



Fisher is trying to hide in his garden, but we can see him !





Thank you all, we have a really nice collection, check our other postcards  here.





You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond


Take care my friends and have a great week-end !
