July 2008 Holidays

It has been way too long and it has been a long winter already with all family being sick, sick sick!  So we have had a quiet school holidays.  
We started off with a bang - Jessica's Dancing Variety Night.  She was so excited to wear her costume from last years concert and it was a great night to see all the kids changing and improving.
Our chickens have started laying eggs ya very exciting and Jessica decided mummy loves eggs the best in our family so I got the first one.  It was totally yummy and I feel so privileged.
Chloe is sitting really well by herself and has finally opened her mouth for solids.  Her favorite foods are bread, steamed potato wedges and stewed apples. 
Last term was a busy time I had 2 camps 
the first down at Nowra for the Scrapping With Soul Camp which was a great camp as usually and Red delivered a fantastic and challenging talk.
The second was at Vision Valley  which was cold and where Chloe started getting sick but there was a fantastic bunch of ladies who helped me out.
Gavin has started a new job and is enjoying it.

Up to date in 2008

Hi all well it has been a busy start to the year.  Our Jess has started school can you believe it and her 1st term is already complete!  She loved it however is enjoying her holidays.  We have just completed a week of swim vac which means a trip to the pool for a half hour lesson each day.  We decided to do this as Jessica was recently promoted to the dolphin class and is now learning side breathing and the start of other strokes so we thought an intensive would help the confidence.

Chloe has settled into our family well.  She loves her sister and giggles at her constantly.  I think Chloe is going to miss Jessica when she goes back to school!  Chloe is now 5 months old!

Our chickens have settled into their new home really well, they can now put themselves to bed at night much to my relief as it has been quite a sight seeing me running around trying to catch chickens to put to bed (no they don't always come for food!).  Gavin did a great job of the cook tractor and he even recycled a lot of stuff from out yard.  I am now looking forward to the eggs.  The chicks are now 12 weeks old so it should only be another 8 or so weeks for eggs!

As you can all see I am starting to get my scrapbooks together again and organising my photos which is going to be a huge job as I have been far too disorganised for far too long so you will be seeing my old work go up for a while now.
