What a surprise to receive this letter bought home from Katie this past week. This is also my photo for this week's PCF Challenge "blurred" - great idea Leah!
Each week they have a "student of the week" which you may remember Katie received in the very first week of term. Well I am happy to report my girl was chosen as student of the TERM! How happy and proud are we! It is quite funny .... Hugh received this award a year or so ago. Each term they have a different theme ... Hugh received his for 'organisation'. What did Katie get hers for? 'Getting along" aka socialising/partying - and thus you have my two children summed up in a nutshell LOL! No seriously, she knew no one and I am tickled pink that she loves her teacher, class, friends, school - makes my job of waving goodbye each morning that much easier.
Hugh will be turning nine years old on Good Friday! Eekkk! Where has that time gone. We offered parties here, there and everywhere ... what did he want? A few good buddies over to run around his front and back yard! LOL! So - as he loves 'army' so much - we went with that theme. Saturday saw this scene below ... he had a blast! And what pulled at my heart strings most is that there was not a second thought on his part that his little sister should be included. LOVE you for that Hugh.
This was Hugh's fave photo ... you have to bear in mind he plays online war games with his father regularly and thinks he looks "so good" in this shot!
Let's see ... apart from running around like a "pack of dogs" according to Denis (!) they played posion ball, went down to the local park to play 'army', played four square, had a Bakugan treasure hunt, flippin' fish, bocci and ate pizza, chips and lemonade!
Now onto scrapping news ... remember to click on all images for credits.
