This was the grand finale of Felix’s Summer Sunshine Celebration Christmas Concert at school this evening. Santa was the school principal, the top half as santa, the bottom half in board shorts and gumboots. Just as it was all coming to an end, five pelicans flew overhead in perfect formation. I thought it was all pretty cool and only almost cried about a hundred times.

Afterwards, all the families took their picnics, blankets and generally exhausted bodies to the large grassy expanse that marks the northern boundary of the school. The kids ran around feral as we all mooched around talking about the kids and how tired we all are. Jasper just blissed out on the picnic rug, happily staring at either the tartan pattern, the leaves or the sky.

Happy days.
