Siblings In September // Coughs, Splutters and Smiles

It's hard to believe September is half way through already, and it seems to have been hijacked by the usual onset of back-to-school bugs. We've all been waking up every morning with dry coughs and scratchy throats, and only David seems to have managed to escape it.The result has been extreme emotions, with the excitement of big school in the mix too. It's just that time of year I guess!

But in the midst of the coughing and spluttering, the grumbling and whining, it is still possible to coerce your four small children to sit for a few moments for a photograph... it is not, however, apparently possible to have all four children...
1. Looking at the camera
2. Smiling nicely!

But hey! That's the joy of life with littles I suppose!

Happy September everyone!

  1. Lovely siblings! x x x

  2. Lovely post Claire. Such beautiful children.x

  3. Your children are absolutely beautiful Claire

  4. Beautiful photos even if it is impossible to get everyone looking at the camera at the same time. It's hard enough with two - I can well imagine with four it becomes impossible! Hope Heidi is enjoying the start of school and that everyone feels better soon. #siblingsproject

  5. I wish there was an easy way to get them all to look. Beautiful photos

  6. Beautiful photos! We too have been hit with the bugs :( xxx

  7. Oh they look so gorgeous here all four together and all so much alike. Look at those blonde heads I love it. MM hair is going dark missing her white hair. We have been plagued with illness here too. Hope all is on the mend. #siblingsproject

  8. Gorgeous photos, I agree back to school has meant germs galore here too boo
