little cow


Last weekend I went to a flea market in a town nearby. I bought
two hats, gloves, a rocking horse, two cups, a vase and little
animals for Jonas. Today we met the real version of the little small
cow. So cute!

at 2200m altitude

Joanna went hiking for two months in the Pyrénées, a walk of 1000 km. 
Often when I'm in traffic or at work I think of her, somewhere on a 
desolate place high in the mountains. This morning I received this 
pictures from her. This is where she is now!
She made a sweet landscape artwork for Jonas, her godchild.
I can't wait to see her, listen to her stories and see more pictures of 
her trip.

from today

We went to the centre of Grimbergen, where we visited the basilica.
Afterwards we ate ice cream and we walked through Prinsenbos.
It felt like a real summer holiday, nevertheless autumn is already

dimiti's fantazi planet

I asked my students to draw a selfportret and one of them
started to draw himself surrounded by the NASA, Superman,
a fisherman on the moon, a banana beating a hotdog, pirates,
spirits and a flying sheep.

for jonas

For Jonas. 
My sweet sweet boy who has filled my life with joy this one year.
On your first birthday you ate your first pancake (you loved it).
You received your first letter (all the way from France, written by
your godmother Joanna). You played with apples from the garden.
You were visited by your grandparents and also Ine and Martha 
passed by.

dreaming of a house

Katrien came over for two days. We went to look at house that's up 
for sale. 
Can you imagine that K & T buying a house in our village? Katy and 
I would be neighbors! That would be so cool!
