Morning miracles and evening circus fun!

34 °C

Okay, so I read a book called The Morning Miracle. It’s all about how starting your day right can “change your life”. 🤣.
While we tried to start run club, as previously stated, it’s just too hot! Swim club is only available to us when we are staying by a beach or with a pool (though to be fair, we’ve been on form with swim club staying in Siem Reap).
Anyway, the boys have decided to get on board with me for a 30 day challenge. It starts with a 5 minute meditation (we did a really cool gratefulness one), then affirmations (we all wrote some down in our journals), then visualisation. This is new for us all, so I found a really cool kids guided one which everyone loved! Followed by 20 mins exercise. Boys are up to 58 push-ups, and we have a skipping rope now which the boys are mastering. Then 15 mins reading and 10 mins writing.
We all felt very motivated heading to breakfast and some healthier choices were made at the buffet 🤣
We walked into town, had to meet a guy who had helped us book cars for us to our next few destinations - spent some time singing wheels on the bus and baby shark with his beautiful daughter. I bought a tshirt for $1! We found a cool place that sells water kefir - so we all went in to enjoy a glass in the air con! Carls butterfly and pea was the crowd favourite.
Poor old Reed ordered a yummy lunch (we stopped while there was a rain shower). They always give you chilli on the side of the plate and we learnt early on to avoid it. However, today Reed got a bit close and it blew his socks off!!
Home for some swimming, dinner and then off in a tuk tuk to a circus show.
Super talented performers led us on a story of Cambodian history through music, dance and acrobatics.
They also have a Guinness World Record for the longest circus show - 24hrs 10mins 30 secs.
They support at risk children, providing free education to over 1200 children each year and jobs to graduates of the school with fair pay.
We all loved it!!

There is was a group of young travellers in the stand next to us. They looked so wrecked!! Before the show there was over 20 of them with heads on the their knees, and at least one of them slept through the entire performance - must have been a few big nights before this one! 😬😴

We walked the 800m home - and passed by a soccer turf - heaps of people still playing at 9pm, which is not surprising, how could the play during the day ☀️
