It's all about Hugh!

September school holidays are here. Hugh now has a two week break - where did third term go??? Wednesday night he had to present his invention "Hugh' s Neighbourhood Game" to parents and families at school. All the kids did such an amazing job, the public speaking for ones so young was highly commendable. Thursday Hugh's teacher called me (eekkk!) to say he was being presented at Friday's end of term assembly with the "Shooting Star Award for outstanding organisation this term" (phew!) WTG Hugh!!! So Mum (that would be me) had to leave work early so as not to miss out. Seeing as I then had a car full of kids for the early finish (not including Katie...she had to wait at creche...no room for her!) I decided to take them all to McDonalds for an end of school treat, to congratulate Hugh and to say goodbye to Jed who is heading off to sunny Queensland (another state) to live. It was a busy but successful Friday.



Who is that man lurking at the back of the school hall? When Hugh saw his Dad had come to see him being presented with his award....well, the smile said it all. Priceless.
