A fairly quiet year this year. A couple of books (one on Birds, one on Kakadu) and a video camera. As per usual, his birthday co-incided with the running of the Finke Desert Race with 500 motorbikes and quad bikes, and 100 buggies, 4WDs and trucks - an enjoyable event to try out your new birthday present! He has had two cakes, one for the family celebration (a Brahminy Kite cake) and one for the School Celebration (White-winged Fairy-wren). Generally it is not too difficult to tell when Moses is excited or a bit disappointed, but this year was. We think we have done the right thing but he has been more subdued than normal, maybe just that little bit older.
Here are some photos of the occasion:
