Cohen and his preschool teacher Miss Selina at his preschool graduation. Cohen is pretty sweet on Miss Selina and loved this photo. He thinks we should print a copy and give it to her on the last day of school with some flowers, so she won't have to miss him too much!

cohen is starting to develop an interest in writing his letters and as a result we now have signs all over the house, including this closed sign on the front door (yes, the back does say open), ada on the other hand is taking an interest in fashion, we call this look, stripes.

Our neighbour Bertha has the most amazing garden, and on a few occasions I have gone out in the evenings to take photos of it. I was thinking of her late husband when I took this one because "lupins were always his favourite".
