Halfway through another school term and the world is spinning so fast at the moment, I’m struggling to keep up.
Alice has settled in well to her new school and seems to be doing really well. Last week was Book Week and they had a dress up day where she chose to dress up as Pippi Longstocking yet again. It seems to be her ‘go to’ outfit that she’s comfortable in and I won’t complain as it’s very easy to organise. The last time she dressed up as Pippi was back in Year 1 and I managed her hair much better this time around I think.
Lucy has been doing well at Athletics carnivals and was awarded Junior Girl Champion at the Upper Clarence District carnival. She would have competed against 4 other local schools and came first in 100m, 200m, long jump and the relay. She came 2nd in the 800m. She then went onto Zone in Lismore last week and while she didn’t place there, she had a really great day.
Last weekend we went to Ballina for the day to do some shopping and while we were there we had messages to say there was an out of control fire that was threatening the town. We managed to get home and there was thick smoke and road closures but the town seemed to be okay. The power was out for a while and phones and internet were out for a few days. I was very nervous that night not quite sure what the status of the fire was but luckily it didn’t jump the river behind us so the town was safe. We went for a drive the next day to see the damage and were surprised at how far it had spread. I’m glad we weren’t home to witness the helicopters and emergency services crews. I would have been a lot more stressed if I was home when it was all happening.
There’s never a dull moment in Tabulam.
