Moments of Gozo

Gozo is where we can truly enjoy family time and have long lovely walks in unspoilt countryside.



The kids practising ballet dancing on the rocks


Gregory wanted to take pics.  This is his photo 

We went on top of straw bales to check out the view...but really they just wanted to try it as a slide and it seems it was great fun!

I rare moment taken - As nowadays my big boy doesn't like me to take him in photos unless its rear facing!

Megalith filled field

running, exploring, enjoying and oops we forgot the sunscreen today.

lovely flora in Wied Mielah- this is Widnet il Bahar

more photo taking by Greg - at least he took a pic of his own shadow :)

darling hubby got a bit sunburnt

we found lots and lots of sea shell fossils

rock pool near the ....

Wied Mielah window - spectacular.  It was awesome and the path leading towards it just as much


open expanses

beautiful horizons - Gurdan Lighthouse

My growing girl



The photo above is Maya last Summer.

Maya is completely into babies :) so that sometimes she is pregnant, giving birth or just caring for her little ones.  It is her most favourite game putting all the dolls and soft toys in 'beds' to put them to sleep.  Or doing pretend food and feeding them.

She still LOVES books and stories read and told.  She also enjoys with pure joy going on the swings - even standing.  She adores playing with other girls and sharing her toys.  She has also rediscovered her joy for swimming!

Maya also talks a lot - always has - but when you take the time to listen to her she says some lovely sweet things.
just born and having her first feed
For all her girlishness, she tends to be afraid of touching pets but becomes courageous if her brother is there doing the same.  When she gets hurt she goes into complete panic mode and will not let anyone touch her hurt part or move it for that matter.  At 3.5 years she still tantrums quite a lot and I still am not able to find a way to calm her down since she still refuses any contact or any gentle talking when in that mood.

But she still laughs a lot.  Shares - gets joy in sharing.  Helps.  Hugs.  Loves with all her might.

My sweet angel.

The time in between Summer and Winter schedules

I feel encumbered by school right now.

Having only half days, I hardly accomplish anything at home before it is time for the kids to get back.  The little ones on the other hand are tired due to heat and hungry.  By the time I get them to nap time we are all frazzled up and no one is in a good mood.

Once they are awake again we are all still too stoned to feel like doing much which is counter productive as our energy remains inside and closed and angry.

I am so, so ready for Summer holidays to begin!
