Better late than never…..here’s a rundown of our activities in the second week of the holidays. Ella started off the week with a day at my work. One of my colleagues had her daughter Jacqueline in the office too and they’ve met a few times before which made life easier. We booked them a meeting room and they had lots of fun playing schools with the whiteboard, playing on the iPad and treating everyone to some One Direction tunes! They did really well considering they were there from 8.30-5.
The rest of the gang enjoyed catching up with friends at the adventure playground, paddling at the beach and having a ‘gelati’ as Charlie now calls it.
Alan had the day off on Wednesday so while Ruby & Poppy were in daycare he took Ella & Charlie to MSAC to go on the flowrider. They love it. Ella also learned to dive and was very excited to send the videos to her Grandmas. Charlie was delighted to spend Wednesday night on a sleep-over at his buddy Jake’s house. Although they’re no longer together every day they still love to hang out together, I’m sure Charlie just loves ‘boy time’ away from his sisters!
I had the day off on Thursday which gave me an extra long weekend. We had the kids friends Olivia & Sophie stay with us for a couple of days. The Thursday was a beautiful day with the temp reaching 31! We spent most of the day outdoors, meeting up with Danielle, Jake, Cameron and of course Charlie and Andrea with her boys Kyle, Kaleb & Aidan plus some new friends in the fort park for picnic lunch. We then headed home for some quiet time before a BBQ in the park and a reuniting of kinder classes. Lots of fun.
On Friday we met one of Ruby & Poppy’s best kinder buddy’s, Alexia, in the Dragon Park with her mum and little brother. The kids had a ball and barely stopped for picnic lunch before they were off playing again. I was exhausted come the evening. Alan & Charlie went to the soccer and Ella & I got cuddled up on the couch to watch a movie…… I think I crashed before Ella but the next I knew Alan woke me up when he came home and he carried Ella up to bed.
The weekend weather was back to damp and cold. We didn’t have much planned and ended up visiting our elderly neighbour who was in hospital for a few days. It lifted his spirits having the kids chatting away and asking him lots of questions about the hospital. Marie and Clint popped in to say hi in the afternoon and on the very last day of holidays we caught up with Roberta and Zoe. Ella had been asking all holidays to see Zoe so she was delighted.
Two weeks of activities and fun and we’re back into Term 4…..the last for Charlie as a kinder boy!
