I'm not sure exactly what it is about this photo but it encapsulates Flip so well. The gentleness, the stance, the interest and carefulness. This is a quokka - I'd never heard of them before.
Towards the end Bounce climbed a tree. Then Flip pointed out a spider in the tree and all ended badly with daddy having to remove a 5 year old screaming 'spider, spider' from the tree.
This is 3 boys watching from our tiny balcony as the rain came. Apparently since we've been here they've broken the record for most days over 40 in a summer and now most rainfall in 24 hours in a summer. What can I say - it appears we are over-achievers?
love you more than a rainy day in summer xxx
