So there I'm again.
I need to confess......... I really am addicted too crochet.
When I started my blog I did stitching and sweing only.. after a while I fell in love with felt, and then a time later crochet came with it.
Most of my blogger friends are stitchers, some also got addicted to crochet, but mostly stitching.
I feel blessed that as I only show crochet at the moment, the stitching blogger friends stayed to watch what I'm doing and making all...
So thank you all..♥
A lot is happend in the past month. The weather is still doing what it wants...............
Then we have a really hot and sunny day, and the day after that rain rain rain... and that's what we see the last weeks. Today started to rain, but by lunch time, is was gone, and when it's was time too eat diner the sun was shining....
and when we have lovely day's we try too enjoy it
Here we went on a friday afternoon after school on our bikes to a little beach nearby to have a lunch on the sand and play in the water, after that went back home on our bikes.. Totally it was a bike ride of 13 km, and even Kira did a awesome job
On other day's we stayed at home, and play in the new playground or at home
Kids love it really much. yesterday my in-laws came with my nephew, he also loved it so much..
And on hot day's we build up our swimming pool, kids have so much fun, and mommy looking at it all and sometimes doing some crochet
Even at night....... :)

Today we went with Noah to the swimming-pool, and he got out with his last diploma!!
We are so proud of him, this time he had to swim with : short shirt, long shirt, long trousers, socks, shoes and a rain-cout, as you see on the little above pictures.. and he did it all..
swim a total of 150 m normal, 150 m on his back, then all the other special jumps, dives etc etc.. They need to do so much..
Kira is now telling every-one that she finally also can learn to swim after the big vacation, we told her so weekds ago, and now summer is started, it's comming closer...
And if that's not all Noah got his first yellow slip with Judo.
He is such a big boy!!!.
Now he stops with swimming, and we go on with Judo, as he likes that very much..
So you will see more of that!

Last post I made Kira a beautifull horse, thank you all for your lovely comments about that.
Kira ordered the unicorn from me..
So I did.... made her the unicorn.
Can you imagine how happy she is with it!!he loves it very much.. BUT...... I still have to make her 3 more horses.. so in time I will..
I want to do that while trying out new pieces of yarn.. for that I need to work a few day's more.. lol.
Last week i was sorting out the kids rooms, and I needed to make a picture of the kids there bed..
Look at how they look like
I think I have a boy and a girl in my house dom't you think????
Mommy we love you and love your crocheting.. I heard that a few times last weeks ♥
* * *
Kira now also has learned how to inline-skate, she is so happy with it.. and doing it with so much joy!!
* * *
Friday was the last day of school, so we now started a 6 weeks vacation.
I still have to work 4 weeks, but hubby almost has vacation.
For the teachers I made a gift. The one in the middle is for the substitude teacher Noah had for almost the whole year, it was a teacher with golden hands as called it.. she really was awesome, still very young, but so good with all the kids in teh class, it's because of her Noah did such a awesome job on school, and after summer he can go to the next class.. so I found someone who makes text on hearts, made it personally for this teacher, as she also has to leave school.....
For the other sweet teachers I made a crochet cover with hearts on to a jar of hearts..
They liked it very much

Slowly the R2-D2 blanket is progressing on..
* * *
And in my garden my veggies, gowing well.. I forgot to take pictures, only have this one.
This week I will see if we can eat some things.
* * *
I like cooking and baking still so much.. so last weeks I have tryed out a few recipe's.
This first dish is a soup, and indian soup.
I love cooking indian food, and from a colleague her grand ma I got this recipe to make Soto Ajam
I can tell you it's awesome.. really love it, as all the others in in house!!
i need to make it more often.. hihi
On warm day's I love to eat a summer meal salad.
Many healty things are in there.. even kids liked it.
A few day's ago it was hubby's birthday, so I baked a few pie's.
The above and below is a Miserable, it's a Belguim specialty, which I really much like to make, and is very very yummy..
In teh middle a carrot cake, for teh kids, as the Miserable is only sugar, and the kids don't get much sugar, and really love to eat this
you also can see the kids crafting.. we where making a paper garland and Kira wante dto make hubby a birthday-crown and Noah also wante dto make them.. I forgot to make pictures, but will do that and show it in my next post.
The diner you see the kids is for some-else.
Some of you know but not all, Hubby has been out of a job for a few times, and every time between he got 3 months/6 months, sometimes a year contract.. but 2 weeks ago he got a permanent contract. so we are very happy.. and that needed a celebrating..we went out to diner...Also my little bother was there he got his P in collage.. I have no idea how to explain that in English, but it';s very good, and now if he wants he can change to all other study's.

You can all remember Noah loves dolphins, and two years ago we went to teh Dolfinarium, that is a sea-zoo.
A few weeks ago we went again. here is store you often can get discount cards with grocery, a sweet friend of mine had some, so we could go with 50% off.. Now that;s very nice, as it;s not cheap
But Kids loved it so much again... Noah rememberd te last time we went, Kira was then to small . But Now she will remember it fo ever.. they both loved it so much!!
Dolphin are such awesome animals.. beautifull

My mailmen was sweet, he bring me a sweet pakage from Portugal from Nia.
She made the kids a sweet present.
As you can see Kira is very happy with her painting she made, and for Noah you have to wait a little bit longer, it's a surprise I;m working on for his room, And Nia and her hubby where so sweet to help me with it. I hope very soon you will see more of it!
And I got a new Xmas hanger, the last one she send me did not survive the plane.....
I'm so happy with such a sweet friend.. thank you Nia ♥ ♥ ♥
I will end this post with a sweet picture of my dancing princes on her last dancing classing for this moment, after summer she will go on with something she loves very very much!!
I wanna thank everyone for visiting my blog and especially everyone who leaves a comment!!

What a beautiful post , a lovely family one and takes me back a few years when we also had family fun.
These days are always the best days of your life.
Congrats to the children for all they have done .
Your food looks wonderful and love your garden veg.
Your blanket looks lovely and all the goodies you are making .
Enjoy your Summer sweet friend.
You have been very busy and I know you always are. You know what good thing I like about you is that you are always positive in life not only in thoughts but in deeds too. You have young kids and you find time not only to look after family and work and playing with them but also crafting beautiful things ....and all that goes without complaining that you could do this but not this :) I keep on complaining and thinking more about what I want to do but cannot do.
Love all your crochet pieces:) I have done opposite. Earlier I use to crochet more, now I am stitching more but stitching takes lot of time.
Congrats to your son for swimming and Judo achievements!! And to your husband for the job!!
And Congrats to you for making this all happen! Your family's achievement are reflection of your hardwork:)
I love how passionate you have become about crochet. I'm also amazed at how much you accomplish. I know it goes fast, but you are really a speed demon with this!
What a cool playground you've made at home for the kids! And those kids deserve it... they are doing so well.
The unicorn is even cooler than the horses! Bet you go through tons of poly stuffing!
I can understand how easy it can be to get hooked on crochet!! I gave it a go & thoroughly enjoyed it. But, my heart remains with my beloved cross stitch needles :D
We are always enjoying looking at your latest creations... that unicorn is soooo cuuuute!!!
Have a lovely day xx
Wat een leuke blog vol met leuke dingen. Die unicorn is gaaf. En wat heb je al veel dingen gehaakt. Geniet van de vakantie van je kids.
Your blog posts always make me smile, Annette! You are so, so busy, but your life is filled with such joy and obvious love for those beautiful children of yours :) A joy to read!!!
I loved seeing all that you have made through the years for Noah and Kira on their beds--before long, there will be no more room for them to sleep! You are so creative and can make just about anything you set your mind to. Congratulations to Noah on his wonderful swimming and judo and to little Kira on making that very long bike ride! I don't know if I could even ride that far :)
Wonderful cakes for your husband's birthday. My husband celebrated his 60th on the 14th and I made him a small carrot cake, too--so yummy...
Enjoy your summer school vacation--hope it is filled with good weather and many fun times with your kids!
Maar je haakt dan ook superleuk!
Ik vind het altijd leuk om te zien wat je hebt gehaakt.
Heerlijk he dat de kindjes ook zo genieten van mama's werkjes.
Geniet van de zomer, het wordt een paar dagen slecht maar gelukkig is er altijd genoeg om te knutselen!

Oh my goodness... your babies are growing up! But they are still adorable! :o)
