First SWIM of the season!!

Woohoo!!!!! Summer is here! All the 'medicine' Scott put in the pool has made the water blue again & the new cleaner seems to be doing a great job (& so it should considering how expensive it was!!) So the kids have bascially spent the whole weekend in the pool. YAY!

Rubber Ducky

Nicola was a yellow duck in her Ballet Production in the weekend, so I keep singing "Rubber Ducky" I thought I should find the video for her cos she has no idea what I'm talking about & I can't remember all the words. This was filmed before I was born!!!!!!! This is her & her best friend Bronte. Aren't they cute. They even had eyeliner & mascara on! It was so tiring dress rehursal on fri, performances on sat & Sun afternoons. I was exhausted! LOL!

First sunburn of the season

woohooo! roll on summer! I don't even care that I got burnt, the sun was so lovely, altho it's a bit sore today. We had a busy weekend with 2 birthday parties & kids sport. And the kids & I have just got back from dropping daddy at the airport, he's so excited to be going to Invercargil for a few days, hopefully he doesn't get snowed on!
I know it was already 2 weeks ago, but here is my LO from Nic's class at camp. It's a bit different, but I like it. Nicola says her crown isn't big enuff! LOL! My mini book is going well, almost finished, but u wont get to see it until after Xmas as it is a pressie; it's a bit different to the original from Faye's class too.
I got a cool Dymo embossing label maker & have been labeling everything in site, hehe. The labels look just like the old ones, but the machine thingy is much easier to use.
We had Daniel's appointment at the Super Clinic to see how his speech therapy is going today. She was happy with his pronunciations now, but still concerned about the nasal quality of his speech so we are having a special x-ray of inside his mouth & nose while he is talking. This should happen sometime before he is 4! LOL!

Sketchbook Retreat

I had a fantastic time at camp! It was awesome. I din't get alot of LO's done, but I did get well on the way to completing my mini book for a christmas pressie, shhhh, don't tell anyone. As usual the completed LO & book from the classes were nothing like the orignal, but I am very happy with them, I will upload them to the sketchbook gallery when I get a minute.

The Halloween Party was heaps of fun. I was the only angel, which surprised me as so many people said they weren't doing scarey on the forum. I had a glowing halo too, but it only lasted about 5 mins. :-( The winner of the compition was Melissa aka Wizardswife & I'm sure you will agree she deserved it. & those shoes.... I must have some.
