"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013" via Che and Fidel.

Three photos taken on three different days:



Lola: Morning, wearing that well-worn and much-loved nightie.
Pearl: Midday, a sit-down protest during our walk around the lake.
Stella: Evening, bath-time. She likes some solo floating time before her sisters join her.

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013" via Che and Fidel.

Lola: She implored me to come to assembly this week because she'd be showing some "incredible artwork." How could I refuse?
Pearl: "I know why it's not working. It's run out of something. We need to put more something in."
Stella: The natural progression of life, according to Stella - baby, kid, big sister, teenager, grown-up.
