Hiking

A dream come true that turned into a happy memory. The kids and I went for hiking in local park last week. Hope to make this a frequent family hike if I succeed in getting the clan out of the home on weekend mornings.

We went on the smallest 0.5 mile trail and pretty much rushed through it for multiple reasons.

reason #101 – It was our first time going inside the woods
reason #202 – M couldn’t join us. It was just me and the kids
reason #303 – We were scaredy cats pretending to be brave

Nevertheless, I was happy with the attempt made and kids loved it

Pillayar Chathurthi 2019

We are not supposed to celebrate any festival for one year but as Amma is here and this is the first festival after we moved to this home she wanted to do a simple pooja. She made all the delicacies and kids made Ganesha. We had 3 types of Ganesha this year. The standard salt dough Ganesha that Adi makes every year, Hanging craft Ganesha that LHB made in a craft workshop with air dry clay and Lego blocks Ganesha made by the duo, actually Adi made most of it and LHB gave final touches. He made a ruckus before they could finish it. This little one of mine can start anything but its close to impossible to make him finish the task (rolling eyes heavily). The lego Ganesha is an inspiration from Toka parent newsletter.

This is my pooja corner in this home. I am yet to find an east facing space in this home to set my pooja space.
