Cooking – I am not a good cook. I try. I am just not very good.
Cleaning – I am not that good at that either. Although I don’t try hard with that one!
Well, I think I blinked and I missed the last week! Not that we were busy or anything!
Last thursday Kate had her Assembly of Excellence, not that she recieved her gold award, but she did have to perform her dance for dance group. She loves dancing, but she still does not want to do it outside of school. One day we will stumble upon something that she really wants to do!
Saturday morning started off with Little Athletics for Luke! He loved it! They only did 2 events as practice, the 50m run and long jump. He was really shy at first and wouldn’t do the warmup exercises as he was quite shy. Then he ran in the last heat of the boys as he was still unsure about the whole thing. But once he got to the end of the run he turned around and started to go back up the track for another turn! Then he couldn’t wait to do the long jump! As soon as they said it was time for the boys he raced over and was second in line! No need for dad’s hand this time! Needless to say, he had a fantastic time and can’t wait to go next week!
Then I spent the better part of the afternoon just bumming around. Sat outside and did some embroidering on my WIP wallhanger while supervising the kids while they played in the street. Kate is getting used to riding her bike with her training wheels up so she only uses them to turn around in a circle, although I think it will only be another week or two and they will be gone completely! It hasn’t taken her long to build up her confidence on her bike.
Sunday panned out very similar to saturday but I spent some time talking with the neighbours and we had the neighbours kids over. All in all, we had a very fun but relaxing weekend. Have I told you that I just LOVE my street?! All the kids get out there and play and because it is a culdesac we dont have to worry about too many cars, but at the same time, the kids are learning some street sense.
I scrapped this layout on saturday for the Journal It Challenge blog. The theme this fortnight is to scrap the story behind the story. So go on over there and check out the blog and if you participate in the challenge you could be looking at becoming a regular contributor or win a prize!
Well, that’s about it from me today. Luke wants me to go and play with him and I have to go and wash up aswell. Hopefully not for too much longer as we will be getting a new dishwasher hopefully this week! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!! 😀
