Senior Cross Country 2015

... and off they went!

It was time for the Senior Cross Country today.
The weather was perfect - not too hot and with some rain in the air.

Welcome October!

For me, October is Autumn. It doesn't matter that it is Spring outside and the sun is shining, the temperature is pleasantly warm and we are rapidly getting closer to our hot Summer...

Our second week of our Spring holiday is coming to an end. Not yet, but I can feel these last four - five days will disappear in an instant and we'll be back to normal life with school lunches and bus trips.

It's been so nice to be home and not have to go anywhere. I've really needed to relax - and do housework. To potter around the house hasn't felt like a chore at all. I'm happy with what I've accomplished and that's the main thing. The kids haven't killed each other either, so that's definitely a bonus this holiday. Jonah has been busy playing his Xbox and Lily has been creative painting water colours outdoors. The key is to keep them apart lol

Only 10 weeks until the Summer holiday/Christmas break... I haven't started the countdown yet, but maybe in a few weeks when I'm feeling hot and bothered and totally over going on any more buses lol

Until next time... Cheerio ☺

The three-week Brisbane festival ended last night with a magnificent firework display.

We watched it on TV. It was pretty amazing☺

A rainy playdate in the park

Our skate park is finally open!
Too many big kids, though...

We had the playground to ourselves though!

Lily with her school friend Inaaya.

Kids on the swings

... And then the rain came and we had to search for shelter.
The kids were soaked, but still having fun.


We decided to go home and eat some Swedish buns...

Perfect ending of a fun and short playdate in the park.

Preparing for an outing

Yummy Swedish Vanilla scrolls for an outing with friends...

Jonah's birthday party in the park

Jonah requested a Minecraft Cake for his ninth birthday, so we made one. It's a traditional Swedish Princess Cake - sponge with layers of raspberries, vanilla custard, cream and marzipan on top.

Jonah and his friends ☺

The cake ♥

Some other party food - pizza buns and vanilla scrolls

Swedish chocolate/oatmeal balls - is a must at any birthday party!

Jonah had a great day with his friends.

Student of the Month 2015

On the last day of the term, Lily was awarded Student of the Month in her class! 'Lily is a positive role model who consistently displays many attributes of the learner profile.'

Jonah also got an award 'For incredible effort shown in reading, and for trying his best at everything he does!'

I'm so proud of both our children ♥

Our fast sprinter girl, who won the 60m race earlier this year, did incredibly well in Junior Cross Country too - she came 4th! Well done! ☺☺☺
