    1 8 . 0 1 . 1 7 , 3 : 1 9 p m // We declared it family date day today and headed into the city to check out The Beach at Barangaroo (lots of fun!) and the Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything exhibition at the MCA. I enjoyed his artistic commentary on change as a constant, and his eerie symbolism of life as a countdown. We were lucky enough to be there when this wall of light blacked out leaving us in complete darkness and Jesse turned to ask me what it meant. I replied that I thought it signified when life is no more but I have no idea if he understood. Both boys have asked about dying and growing old on occasion but without reference, it is a such a hard concept for their little minds to grasp. I look forward to the day I can see true comprehension in their eyes and hearts when I can explain what death means, and point them to the loving Christ who triumphs over death and who has spoken kindly to us as in John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” #tealilyjanuary2017 #januaryphotoaday #photoaday #tatsuomiyajima #mca_australia

    That's my favourite verse to the girls every time we take about death. What a glorious moment captured. :) (Sal)

    A N N O U N C E M E N T T I M E / / My Visual Storytelling Online Class is about to begin again in less than a month and amid all the drama at the end of last year and with January being all that it is (jam packed with kiddo time!), I’ve completely forgotten to spread the word. It will be the last @lifecapturedinc online class I will be holding for a while as I seek to bring some fresh vision to my business, to immerse myself in a bit more film and personal work, and help my little ones transition into all the new rhythms that this year will bring. If you’re keen to pick up your camera with a newfound confidence and love, and learn how to document everything you want to remember in the years to come, I’d love for you to join me! Classes are at your own pace, and together with a student forum, weekly homework and personal feedback, it will definitely be a course you won’t regret committing to in 2017. To say thanks for following along this journey here on insta, I’m also sharing a 20% discount code (Tealily20) that you can enter at check out until the end of the month. Link in profile! Hurrah! xx #masteryourcamera #photographyclasses #documentinglife #lifecapturedclasses #makingmemories

    1 7 . 0 1 . 1 7 , 9 : 3 9 a m // The last few days have been scorchers and there was no better way to spend a lazy morning than in the pool. The kids are always so at ease in here, and I find myself thankful for the pool I never wanted (and thankful to my husband for making sure it’s in good condition). The boys no longer want any help so it’s just playtime with the little one while cannonballs, handstands, made-up games and brotherly competition surround us. Here they are enjoying breakfast #2 which I gave to them in an attempt for all three to be in the same frame... #januaryphotoaday #photoaday #tealilyjanuary2017

    Decades from now, they'll be saying things like, "we used to have a pool out back, and on those really hot summer days, we would just jump in and only take breaks from swimming to eat ice blocks. Those were the days..."👌🏻

    1 6 . 0 1 . 1 7 , 10 : 1 9 a m // A quiet moment in between the buzz that was today. Five and a bit hours spent at the Zoo thanks to the kindness of friends (thanks Michelle!) and unexpected strangers. We saw meerkats, elephants, lemurs, seals, spiders, bees, goats, chooks, emus, zebras, giraffes, bears, lizards, wombats, kangaroos, and some annoying birds that tried to swoop on Naomi’s lunch. Jesse took charge of the map all day, and Luke fell asleep while waiting for the cable car ride with the promise of ice cream etched upon his mind. I made it up to him later at the service station while we refuelled the car. All in all a rather lovely day that I hope makes it to the list of happy annual outings in their little childhood memory banks. #tealilyjanuary2017 #photoaday #januaryphotoaday

NAP!” she goes, slamming every card that was put down until everyone dissolved in giggles and she’s wondering what all the fuss was about. #januaryphotoaday #photoaday #tealilyjanuary2017

    1 3 . 0 1 . 1 7 , 4 : 3 9 p m // If you asked me at 2pm, I would have been inclined to post nothing today. But in the interest of documenting life as it is, here is a fun photo with an honest caption. The boys woke me up fighting with each other in my bed with a poorly aimed kick from Jesse landing square in my recovering stomach. Relentless bickering, whinging and rebellion ensued for most of the day despite dad’s pep talk before work, a change of scenery mid-way, and a nap in the car. It was a day of doubt in my ability as a mum, a day I asked myself a million times what I’ve been doing wrong to result in this behaviour, and wondering what needed to be done to result in change. The answer came later when I was finally able to have Jesse quiet enough to listen in his room. We did our best to talk in normal voices, and for him to understand that actions will result in consequences. Ever so slowly his heart comes through and he asks for help so we do what we should have done so much earlier in the day and we pray. For strength, for help, for patience, for wisdom, for listening ears, and loving hearts. I know we might have to repeat the entire ordeal again tomorrow, the next day, and the next…..but I also know I can’t do this on my own, and neither can these little ones of mine. "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” - Psalm 51:10 #tealilyjanuary2017 #photoaday #januaryphotoaday

    1 2 . 0 1 . 1 7 , 5 : 5 0 p m // A certain little girl had just come out of her bath and upon drying off and half clothed, spotted her brother get in the shower and decided to join him for a second round. Jesse helped her wash her hair while Luke joined in on the fun with some peekaboo through the steamy glass. it’s not so often these three play nicely but when they do, those giggles go straight to the heart.

Her favourite words right now are duh-dee, muh-meeee, birr (bird), duh-dle (cuddle), mee-mee (mimi) and MOH (more!). Here her grandpa is singing a song in chinese and she finishes off the line with….”bao bao wo!” (cuddle me) and those actions are way too cute not to document. Oh Time, won’t you pause for just a little while?
