We have had a very busy holiday considering we've not done anything much! :)
When I was sorting my photos for this post I came across this photo that reminded me that we did go across to Ballarat to the Blog Meet a couple of weeks ago which I have realised I never mentioned ...
This was the only photo taken of the actual meet .. Megan was the official photographer on the day with her new camera courtesy of Santa!
I dragged the whole family along using it as an excuse for quality family time. We did have a really nice time my husband took the kids to the pool next to the park while I got to spend some time chatting. It was so nice to put a face to the blogs! If you aren't familiar with these blogs do your self a favor and go take a peek at;
The kids have had three weeks of swimming classes which soaked up each morning and often part of the afternoon as well. But they have accomplished so much in that time that the 6am starts have been well worth it!
For most of the first week Joshua was the only student in his class so he has gone from total terror to being able to independently torpedo along with his face under the water. Ben and Jessie can now swim 4 laps of a 25m pool combining freestyle & backstroke. Jessica motors along like a speed boat and is justifiably proud of herself. Ben on the other hand although he manages quite well does look like he is about to drown at any moment! Megan has become a very accomplished swimmer easily able to swim 8 laps of the pool in freestyle, backstroke or breast stroke - she is quite amazing and looks so natural in the water. I would recommend VicSwim to any Victorian parent it really is a terrific program!
Putting together the patterns for my shop also took up so much time. Thank you for taking a look and a huge thank you to everyone who bought one or two! If anyone has tried to purchase a pattern and has been told by Paypal that Idon't ship to your area ... well Paypal is just kidding ... I do it is just that I haven't added your country to my shipping list. Please email me and I will sort it out for you.
And now with only a few short days before school starts back it has dawned upon me that I haven't organised anything for the term ahead ... so I'm off to get sorted and to cuddle the kids a bit before the time is totally up ...
... plus I've got to somehow find some time to finish this ...
... I have the hots for circles at the moment! :)
Have a great week and I'll see you all again once I have my little family settled back in school.Forgive me for not doing my usual visits to your blogs ... for now my life is getting in my way!
