Hi everyone :)
With all the stuff going on around here it’s been a bit crazy and I didn’t get a chance to blog my Project Life pages from last week… but they’re ready now.
Here’s an overview of the week:
My Feel Good Friday was all about food styling and I loved this photo of the cookies so I had to use it for my date card:
On Monday’s Carey and I often go up the road from school and sit under the big shady tree to eat our lunch. In reality we’re only 3 minutes away from school but it is so nice to get away from the chatter of children for 20 minutes!
Ethan was awarded the trophy for being a good role model at school and although has wasn’t about to smile for the camera he was quite pleased with the award.
My kids have done some fantastic writing this year and sometimes it’s hard to get the wall displays up as quickly as I would like to. This one about the Big Bad Wolf has taken a while to get published and mounted but it’s all done now:
We’ve started working on a new art project… landscapes using layers and painting techniques. The kids are really getting into it and learning a bit about perspective as well:
On Saturday I headed over to Hamilton to spend the day with Krystal. We did a little bit of window shopping and then Toby sent me a ‘telepathic’ message about something he wanted to buy me for Christmas… he’s a good boy LOL
After we did a bit of actual window shopping, Krystal and I headed to a Mexican restaurant she wanted to try. They had some pretty interesting food and we ordered several small plates so we could share. Our favourite was the Quesadillas with Prawn and CACTUS! Really delicious!
We decided to have a pitcher of ‘Virgin Margaritas’ and they were so delicious! I might have to make some for Christmas!!
After lunch we went for a walk around the man-made lake. I was so pleased that I had my camera with me because there were some excellent photo opportunities like this pukeko heading for the water lilies: And this house which I really liked the look of:
On Sunday I woke Mikayla up at noon… she’s totally NOT a morning person! I got her to help me with the lawns and she wasn’t all that impressed. To be honest it took a LOT longer than I thought it would… 5 hours and 3 tanks of petrol in the mower!!! I lost count of how many catchers we emptied but I do know we flooded the motor twice!
We also trimmed up all the ivy growing along the rock wall and by the time we were done we were both feeling quite pleased with ourselves.
So that was my week… I’ll be back later on today with this weeks pages :)
