Winter sky

We were invited to a ski station near our village by the mother of my daughter’s best friend. It is the first time I have ever been to a ski station. We didn’t go to ski but for the kids to sled. There is a machine that pulls the sled up with the kids in them and at the top the kids sled down.

Later, we took my five year old and her best friend to the movies.  They are members of a cinema club for children from the ages of 6 to 12.  The movies are explained beforehand to the children and there is an adult with them at all times.  

The club is called the Lanterne magique.

From the Lanterne magique website:

The Magic Lantern is a film club for children aged 5 to 12; it aims to inform about the wonder and beauty of cinema by showing some great films several times year in a real cinema. Each session begins with a small stageshow.

The Lanterne magique exists in Argentina, England, France, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Senegal, Spain and Switzerland. If you live in any of these countries and have children I highly recommend this club. It is a great experience for kids.

After I picked up my six year old from the cinema she told me that it was the best day of her life.  Since we moved to Switzerland my three youngest children have had a childhood that is out of a dream.  The best part is that it only gets better and better the older they get because they are able to do more things and are able to appreciate it to the fullest.

Below are some photos of our winter sky that I took this morning with my Kodak EasyShare.  It is the camera I used up until this Christmas when my husband bought me my Nikon D60.  

My Kodak takes good photos for a compact camera and is perfect for sticking in the pocket of my winter coat but I would love to buy a Lumix one day as a replacement.

My youngest daughter (age 5) took the shot shown above. I love that my kids are interested in photography.

    I absolutely love the first pic of the fresh untouched snow. Your daughters pic is outstanding! And that is so lucky about the movies! The post below is also really cool about collecting money and candy. Great pics to go with it also! IT’s like I am living through you vicariously!

    I’ve heard of Magic Lantern…it is such a great concept.

    Love that first photo :) Amazing what a ‘simple’ camera can do, isn’t it?

    I read an article about a professional photographer that only shot with point and shoots…nothing fancy at all. His photos are incredible. I need to find that article again to share.
