I’ve certainly dropped the ball when it comes to finding time to update the Blog and let people know how we are travelling on this adventure. Over 2 months since the last time I wrote is pretty terrible but I’ll do my best to fill you in on what we have been up to.
We’ve hit the halfway mark of our 3 year adventure and still not 100% on what will happen when Linden’s time is up. We’ll have to wait and see what positions are available for him to apply for and if they will suit our little family.
I worked full time Term 1 in the school office and it was a hectic but very happy 11 week Term. I have really enjoyed being busy and learning new skills but will drop down to 4 days a week as of next Term. That extra day at home to catch up and recover will do me the world of good I’m sure.
The girls have also had a very busy term. They are still having horse riding lessons with the amazing Simone. The school swimming carnival was early in the term and they both made it through to District level but didn’t progress any further. Alice was the reserve for the mixed relay and that relay team performed so well, qualifying for State level in Sydney. Unfortunately one of the girls wasn’t able to attend, so Alice was asked to go as a reserve. It was such a great experience for the team to swim in the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre, even though they didn’t make it to a final. We had a fantastic few days afterwards catching up with family and friends on the Central Coast.
Our school Cross Country was also held towards the end of term and Lucy’s training paid off with a first place. Her running has improved so much since last year, I think the training and her determination really showed. Alice came 2nd and they will both progress to District level early next Term.
Both girls made Easter hats for the parade at school and we did some Easter craft and baking this year at home. We had a very quiet Easter weekend, just recovering from some very busy weeks. A few days rest at home was exactly what we needed.
We have only just got home from our unexpected trip to Sydney, unpacked, washed clothes and have now re-packed for a 4 day trip to the Sunshine Coast where I will catch up with my dear friend Louise and her two boys. All four of the kids are going to do a Weetbix Tryathlon on Sunday.
Hopefully next week will be a little quieter to rest up before the new Term starts.
