Well...life is hectic as usual.. And yep it is the school hols...Woohoo.. they go back next week.. lol.. Does that make me a bad mum..lol. Bit of excitement in the family at the moment.. Greg's Brother Matt and his wife Jo have had a little baby girl today.. Zoe Marie.. So can't wait to meet her. And yep .. that means we still have the only male grandchildren on both sides..lol.
We are getting back to normal kinda after losing Dad.. the boys still get a bit upset lately but Brodie is the big surprise.. I really didn't think he understood it at all.. but he got really upset for the first time one night a week ago and kept crying for Poppy at bedtime... and the other day he asked Daddy where he was going.. When Greg said to work he replied.. 'no Daddy you going to heaven to see Poppy..' We could not convince him that Greg was going to work..lol.. It is amazing what goes through their little minds.. It is sad..but I am glad in a way that he is missing Poppy.. Being so young I was worried Poppy would be no more than a blip on the radar.. But we talk to them all the time about him so hopefully we can keep the memories alive.
We got Connor's first report card at the end of term 2. He did quite well but we need to work on his effort... surprise surprise.. he is too easily distracted..lol. Luckily he is smart so is still quite well advanced academically.
Declan is doing well at Kindy.. and his kindy teacher tells me he is quite smart.. again he also needs to work on his social skills..All her comments bring memories of Connor in Kindy crashing back..lol.. We have been babysitting the Kindy chickens over the school holidays.. Unfortunately the boys have not treated them very well.. so it has been quite a learning curve for them.. they need to understand that what they do affects animals as well..
It has been very busy over the holidays. I had Tanya's Tupperware Baby shower at the beginning of the hols.. she only has a couple of weeks to go.. so excited I am going to have another bubba to play with..lol.. and that night we had our Mum's night out for Playgroup. It is so nice to get out with just the girls and relax
We have made some lovely new friends through Playgroup. Dylan and Carien have moved here from South Africa and have 2 gorgeous little boys. They came over for Dinner and Movie night and we had a great time.. after we got the kids to crash.. and crash they did..lol.. we had lots of fun playing the Wii..
After having lunch with Gil and Annette, we took the kids to see the armed forces display they put on in town.. They do it every year when the Americans etc come to town for a training operation. The boys loved it they got to pretend to drive big trucks.. see a Caribou fly over.. See camels and cavalry horses.. get their faces painted and ask a million and one questions of the soldiers. Rach, Adrian and the kids and Dylan, Carien and the boys came too.. It was a great arvo. And It was Sam's first birthday as well.. He is getting sooo big.. and soo cute!
Tom then came over for a sleepover.. the boys loved it.. and Rach and I got to play around with my slide scanner that arvo.. yeah it works..lol.. got some slides of Dad's I need to do.
We have been to the parks both last week and this week with playgroup which the boys enjoyed..
And the girls came over on Wed and I actually scrapped..woohoo.. Will upload pics another day.. I have got another person hooked..lol.. Carien is now going to start coming over every Wednesday to scrap with me.. and on a sad note I am losing a wonderful friend to the big smoke soon. Tanya, Chris, Michael and Talissa will be moving to Brisbane in a few weeks. I am soo gonna miss them..
Anyway.. I think I have caught up.. It is late and I am getting tired. so I am gonna sign off now. I hope you are all well.. and haven't fallen asleep after another of my looong updates.lol...
Love to all xx
