Busy Days

Hey all It's been a busy couple of days.

Took today off work to clean up the yard and shed.
Just finished mowing the backyard and it started to rain - good timing -.

Kate went swimming with her school class to today with Paul Sadler swim school. How good are they.

We had to write a letter from our lawyer because the previous swim school would not allow Kate to go swimming with her own class. So Kate's school changed providers to Paul Sadler. There are 2 kids (inc Kate) with disabilities in her class and both of them went swimming today with the rest of their class. Thanks Paul Sadler the kids had a ball!

We all went down the strand tonight and had Macca's on the beach. Starting to see a trend here.
Jack ran into one of his mates from school. twas a good night.

They cut down a tree at work today and we're going to get it slabbed up. should be good in 12 months.

CO2 Racing Cars

Did a display for the little kids at school today with the CO2 cars.

We have a 25mtr track and race 2 cars side by side which are powered by soda bulbs.

It's a pretty flash set up with a timing device which times to 1/1000 of a sec.

Any way the Prep kids (Jacks Class), Pre Prep and Snr Kindy (Wills Class) got a huge kick out of it.

At the start of each race there's gas and noise and the kids nearly jumped out of their skins first time around.

I've got some picks which I will add when I upload them.

Took Jack to the doctor today with a ear infection, it's a fairly minor one but I want to nip it in the bud seeing that is swimming season.

Kate has a bit of a rash which we think maybe a reaction to the Tegretol, She has an appointment withthe Doctor on Fri.

Seem to be living at the doctors at the moment.

Keep posted

A Day at the Water Park

Today was just a beautiful day that I took the kids (and Lady)to the water park down at the strand.

There we met up wit Nana and Poppy, Uncle Wade, Aunty Miki and Hana chan and Aunty Dor and Uncle Ron.

We pulled out the blankets and got comfortable on the green grass. We ate our sangas, watermelon and fairy bread.

Jack and Will headed straight into the water but Kate was to interested in playing with Hana to worry about the water.

Notice the Delica in the background!!

We finished off the excursion with a walk along the beach much to Lady's delight.

Now off home for a sleep!

Swimming Lessons

Took Kate and Jack to aquatherapy swimming today with the CPLQLD.

She really loves her Friday after noon with the girls!!

I have had a flotation vest modified a bit for Kate to assist with her swimming, tried it out today for the first time worked pretty well but Kate needs to grow a bit longer for it to be totally effective.
Watch this space!!

On a seperate note we have had a bit of a fight about Kate and her being able to go swimming with her classmates. At least the school is now using another swimming lesson provider who is happy to let Kate in the pool with her class mates.

Some people really don't know the meaning of discrimination hey!

We all went down the strand this evening and had Macca's and a bit if a run around in the park. Took Lady too she loves a good run.

Came home, Will fell asleep in the car and Donna, Kate, Jack put together a mobile cupboard type thing and ate chocolate.

Good Night.
Well I'm going to start being serious with this blog so stay tuned!!!
