Got to LURVE school holidays!

Yes ... that time again ... one week down and one more to go. Forever the 'teacher', my children and I have it all planned out. We love organising a range of things to do: games - cyber and ol' fashion board variety, to the movies to see 'Rio" (highly delightful), a game of mini golf and other things.

Our calendar on the fridge helps us keep track and look forward to things!




I was lucky enough to open the App store one day this week and find the usual $9 apps on sale for $1!! YAY! Monopoly for Ipad has been loads of fun ... with such realistic noises and moves, one just has to love the way the car literally zooms around the board! Best of all, the click of a button for packing up or better yet, easily suspended to be continued for another day.





Den has been trying to teach Hugh some basic electronics ... it's just wonderful to watch.





Den has this coming week off, so lots of just 'hanging around' - literally as you can see! Den took this photo below; what chance do I have of ever training this cat if he thinks it absolutely wonderful to capture him basking in the sun on the kitchen table!

Move over Achilles ... that's my spot!

Hope you have a GREAT winter break Helen! Seems so weird saying that, when the kids here are just about to break up for their 6 week summer holiday! I wish I could have 6 weeks off work ... there are sooooooo many things I'd like to get done, but weekends just aren't long enough (almost makes me wish I wasn't back at work ... almost!). Anyhoo, have fun & I look forward to reading / seeing all about it!!!

How cool that Den is teaching Hugh some stuff about electronics. That would be a very handy bit of knowledge!

Those sound like really fun plans! Very cool that your hubby understands electronics. I'm sure Hugh will pick it up like nothing--kids are so sharp these days! You have definitely made me wish for an iPad. LOL
