A bit of a photo catch up

There's been lots of things going on lately on the with the kids at school.

Lily got her 9th "Super Soarer" award at the end of June, then they both finished the term with awesome report cards. They both received a special letter commending them on their fantastic behaviour & attitude, Lily also received Principal's Award & Mackenzie topped it all off by being awarded the July "Aussie of the Month" for her class.

Lily's class & the other Stage 2 kids bid a final farewell to the demountable classrooms & the new building is ready for them to start classes in Term 3. Lucky kids now have classrooms with ocean views!

We're well & truly in holiday mode & it seems Mother Nature may be too, the weather hasn't been crash hot for doing much outdoorsy stuff with all the rain we've been if only it would land in the catchment areas.

Mackenzie & one of her hermit cute & fun to watch

Lily's Aboriginal face painting from her excursion to the Walkabout Wildlife Park (which Year 3 finally got to go on after being postponed several times to due rainy weather)

Lily & Mackenzie cooked bacon & mushroom pasta for us for dinner earlier this week, it was yummy!

......& I've done a little scrapping

(the 1st one was from a sketch at Scrapz which I've changed a little since posting there, still not completely happy with it, but you get that sometimes don't you? The 2nd was for a minimalist challenge which I missed the deadline for)

3 Angels Scrapping have now officially closed & Red Earth Scrapping's forum & gallery has been launched prior to the shop opening on 1st August. There's a competition currently running with a fantastic first prize $30 voucher up for grabs. Why not head on over here & give it a go! I'm very excited to have been asked by Helen to be a part of her inaugural Creative Team with the ultra talented Mistra Hoolahan. I've received my first kit & will be creating some Father's Day & male themed cards for my first assignment.

Also, before I go, I'd like to send a special shout out to a couple of very talented ladies, Kim Jeffress who's been chosen on the Hambly Screen Prints & Scrapware DTs & Sandra Wallace who's the guest DTer for this month @ Twiddleybitz. Congrats to you both & enjoy!

For those with kids, I hope you are enjoying the school holidays too & as always thanks for stopping by & leaving such lovely comments too!
