kids drawings

my cousin francisco turned 6 this year and will start primary school next month. although he lives in a small place, he had a really great pre-school that took the kids on lots of adventures, and they had a tradition of documenting everything in drawing. at the end of the year, he brought home all his masterpieces. i love them!

my favorite bits are the weekend drawings, in which they explain what they did the previous weekend, like helping his mom kill some chickens. you can tell he’s not from a city! :D

harvesting honey

remember the family hives? despite some hiccups along the way, we still have them after all these years! when autumn comes, the honey is collected and this year we were fortunate to have quite a bit of the sweet stuff. my brother recently harvested it and i made some videos of the process, skipping the opening of the hive as there were not enough suits for everyone.

i like beekeeping — every phase of the honey-making process is beautiful!

favourite human #2

this kid, that i held in my arms less than 24 hours after she was born, is graduating from nursing school this weekend… and i find the whole thing implausible. how did time go by this fast? seems like only yesterday we were feeding the pigeons in porto, pigtails and white dresses and so much laughter.

i think there are probably no words large enough to express this pride and joy — and especially the beauty of seeing someone grab an opportunity and transform their story into something unique.

the future is yours, kiddo — go get it!
