It was the last swimming classes of the term today and the theme was ‘water awareness & safety’. The kids had to wear their pyjamas to get a sense of what it would be like to swim fully clothed should they fall in. Charlie thought it was hilarious! He really enjoyed wearing his life jacket and going for a ride in the boat. Ella’s class had to swim a length with their life jackets on and when she came out she repeatedly told us how difficult it was. Here they are in action:
Hard to believe school holidays are upon us again, yes, today is the last day of term 3. Ella is really looking forward to the holidays, she’s seemed tired the past few weeks. She has started a list of all the things she wants to do including the zoo, museum, ice skating, sleepovers…..we’ll take 2 weeks to get though the list! Her teacher is going on long service leave for the next 6 weeks, spending most of her time in Edinburgh. Ella made her promise to keep an eye out for Grandma!
Everyone at school was dressed in their footy colours. Here is Ella on the walk to school:
Happy holidays everyone!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a month since I lasted posted…..I’ve thought about it a lot but just never seemed to get around to actually typing!
We were all delighted to see September 1st bringing with it the start of Spring. We were lulled into a false sense of security with a few beautiful days then a cold spell returned but I’m glad to say the forecasts are slowly improving…..in time for your arrival Marie!
Here are some pics taken in the park which I’ve just downloaded from my phone:
And here are some from August 20th when we started to get a taste of beautiful spring weather. The kids had fun playing with all their new outdoors toys from Grandma & Grandad….although Ruby & Poppy were not all that keen to be the running targets with Ella in pursuit!
We’ve been up to so much more but I promise I’ll post more in the next few days.
