Florence (Firenze) by Tracy Crisp | Jun 9, 2011 | travel | 13 comments Image: Lads on the steps of a church. Eldest is listening to Charlie Bone (yes, again) Youngest is reading about Roman soldiers (yes, again). I am hoping that we will find the produce market just around the corner. Hindsight tells me we won’t. 13 Comments elsewhere on June 9, 2011 at 5:37 pm It looks beautiful. The boys look older since I saw them last at the Adelaide markets. Reply edj on June 10, 2011 at 12:27 am That is a gorgeous photo. Reply tracy on June 10, 2011 at 7:49 am Thank you – I love it. Mind you, I have to admit I did bung it in iphoto and up the saturation levels (or something like that)…my photography has improved no end since I found all those dials. Reply librarygirl on June 10, 2011 at 3:08 am sigh…. to be there, right now…..sigh. Reply tracy on June 10, 2011 at 7:47 am I know…we had never been before, and now I’ve turned into a complete Italo-phile tosser and want to buy a house on a coastal cliff, and one in Tuscany and eat gelato and drink Sprizers for six months every year. Sigh indeed. Reply librarygirl on June 11, 2011 at 4:33 am Tracy, I’ve never been and we’re long term planning a month in Italy there in their spring in 18 months or so (eldest doing year 12 next year so have to wait…) Husband is learning Italian and I can’t stop watching travel dvds and gazing at pictures in library coffee table books. It’s like an illness, I tell you! Yearning. Reply Elephant's Child on June 10, 2011 at 3:11 am Truly lovely. And I also love that youngest is reading. Reply Elephant's Child on June 10, 2011 at 3:12 am Oops. And I hit post comment before I had finished. Love that youngest is reading – oblivious to the beauty around.

Reply Mindy on June 10, 2011 at 4:30 am How clever of you to get them dress alike so they are immediately identifiable. How did you manage that? Reply tracy on June 11, 2011 at 9:11 am They dress themselves in matching clothes. Actually, I almost didn’t post this picture, because I was worried people would think, ‘OMG! You dress your boys in matching clothes. Reply Lynne on June 10, 2011 at 4:52 am On a completely different matter – have you seen this? CISA-CUA is turning 30 – Help us find our ‘family’. In September this year, Connecting up Australia (formerly CISA Inc) turns 30 and we‘re trying to locate former staff and Board members to help us celebrate. So if you were ever a staff member or Board member of CISsa, CISA or Connecting Up Australia, or you know the whereabouts of someone who was, please contact Karen Vance email@example.com 08 8212 8555 x-207 so that we can reunite the ‘family’. Reply Kath Lockett on June 12, 2011 at 6:39 pm That photo is utterly beautiful and mostly because of your boys (who knew I’d think such a thing when it was taken in Firenze?) Charlie Bone and Roman soldiers for your two; John Marsden and Raising Hope for mine. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
