Strathalbyn 2016

In March 2016 Angus and the boys moved from Mitcham to make their home with me in Strathalbyn.

The image featured above shows Graham (left) and Austin at their beloved computer desk.

Austin loves to help.

It was a rainy day …

Graham (sometimes) enjoys art. He is always very inventive. This work shows a cross-section of the earth with red molten magma; blue ocean; yellow sand with brown rocks; green grass and a tree.

In July, Graham taught himself to ride a two-wheeler.

…. and another try ….

 

… until

… next day ……

Bingo!

Practice may not make perfect, but it sure makes for improvement.

 

With Family and Friends

In September we visited Asa’s family in Japan.

Graham and Austin enjoyed time with their Nana and cousin Yuu.

In October we enjoyed our annual MacGillivray family day at Paracombe.

This is held at the home of Graham’s brother, Bruce.

The boys are playing with their cousin Jesse ….

and riding in the Kubota.

 

 

 

Here Austin is talking with our friend Margaret and her dog, Muffin.

He tells her she could “put Muffin in the sausages”.

Austin loves watching this video.
