Summer is over and I can’t really say that I’m too sad about that. I am usually a lover of Summer, but this year was brutal. I’m happy to say that things are a little cooler and more comfortable this week. Hopefully it’s the end of 40-45 degree days for a while. Next I’ll be complaining I’m too cold!
Last week I had another paid day of Teacher’s Aide work at the girls school and had a really fun day. It’s challenging but the day goes quickly and it keeps me from boredom at home. I’m about 2/3 of the way through the course now and loving submitting assignments and learning more about the job.
The girls went to the Zone Swimming Carnival in Lismore and competed in the Junior Girls relay team. They had such a fun day and for non-competitive swimmers who don’t do any training or squad they did amazing, coming 11th. We were all so proud of the team.
On Friday was the Primary Assembly morning and Lucy was inducted as an SRC (Student Representative Council) member. She’s very proud of her badge and the responsibilities that come with the role. She’s already planning some fundraising for Easter and Mothers Day.
A few weeks back, Linden found a turtle on the road and brought it home to save it being run over. We kept it for a week or so and named her Tessa. It was great to observe her but the plan was always to release her back to her natural environment and take her down to the river where she would be much happier swimming with friends. It was so lovely to see her swimming off to her new adventures and hope she’ll have a long and happy life.
We’re looking forward to going back to the Central Coast during the April school holidays. We haven’t worked out exact dates yet but will probably be around most of the holidays to catch up with family and friends. The girls and I are hoping to go to the Easter Show one day and I’ve decided to enter a photo for this year’s photographic competition. The challenging part will be getting the framed photo from here to the Easter Show in time for judging. I’ve delivered them myself in the past, but this year I’m going to have to rely on the Post delivering it safely! Let’s hope it arrives in one piece.
