Kyle picked up a few school awards at presentation night this year - Dux, science, arts & music, Lions virtue & sports awards. Very proud of his achievements all through primary school and now looking forward to senior school challenges.
Kade also was awarded an achievement award for his great year in kindy. He too is looking forward to full time school in pre-primary. Too clever!!

and this !!!
Before the kids grow up too much and leave home, we thought we'd bite the bullet and install a pool. It's a 9.2m x 4.5m above ground braced oval that we managed to sink to ground level. Installing it was not without it challenges and I don't think the contractor will be taking our calls for awhile. With the on-roof heating warming the water to a comfortable 25 ish c, we should get loads of swimming even if it's not stinking hot. The kids love it and the grassed area on the west side is beautifully shaded for the afternoon drinks. Just need to finish off with a shed covering the pumps and some deck chairs to relax in. Bring on the summer!!

Kade asked me if I could buy him a pirate costume next time I went to the big shops...I had to stop at the thrift shop in TS this morning and came out with a hat, mask, scarf, shirt and a parrot for only $2.
What a bargain!!
Now he wants me to make him a pirate boat that 3 people can fit in!! Maybe not.
