B-roll

After the excitement of Christmas, and the sad departure of Grandma, it’s been a quiet few days. We’ve been hanging around the house, cleaning up all the new toys and reorganizing a bit, and just enjoying the neighbourhood.

Tomorrow is New Year’s eve, and we’re planning to stick around home. We may head into Jakarta to get a few groceries and check out “teak street” (where all the teak furniture is sold), but we’re not joining any of the festivities. I don’t think we’re quite ready to face Jakarta for New Year’s.

In the meantime, I thought I would share some of our B-roll photos. These are the ones that either didn’t make the cut or were simply capturing the funny things that happen around here.

The kids had a dress-up day at school recently, where they had to come in as what they want to be when they grow up. J wants to be a chef, I hope.

B was so pleased that he "took a picture of taking a picture!" I think it's cute that he thinks he invented the idea... at least it turned out to be a good shot!

I can't think of a better way to transport a giant bag of tiny baby shoes than this. Other than about a million better ways.
