"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013"

It's school break here - the end of the first of our four school terms for the year so we have been away for the Easter weekend with some friends to their weekend home on the Murray River - the border between Victoria and NSW, here in Australia.

We had the most amazing time - the girls hardly stopped smiling all weekend...

This little lady has always been very comfortable in and on the surf, seems she's just as at home on the river; taking to riding on the 'biscuit' behind a speeding boat like she had been doing it for years.

There's a 'wild child' lurking within that sensible exterior after all!

And yes, since last week she's now got a 'gappy' smile!
Another water baby with eyes as blue as the water. This one in the pool, with a lifejacket just for fun!

All my children are part fish I think!
This little Miss is ready to take on the world, with gusto!

While I have almost lost her out the top of this shot (she jumped higher than I anticipated!), I love the sense of freedom and abandonment shown here.
Jumping for the pure joy of it!

Taking the plunge in a big way!
I'm playing along with Che and Fidel again.
Go and join in if you like.

Love the pictures of your waterbabies Karen - it looks like they are very at home splashing around.
