Holidays almost at an end

The holidays are all but over and it's been a real mixture for the kids:
  • Rainbows End
  • Waiwera Hot Pools
  • Movies (Bolt, Madagascar 2, Bedtime Stories)
  • Devonport
  • Play dates with friends
  • Art class
  • Scrapbooking class (cards, tags, boxes)
  • Mission Bay (a few times)
  • Loads of swimming
  • Mini Golf and Driving Range
  • Museum
  • and more ....
Georgia attended art classes at the University of Auckland last week Monday to Thursday. In the mornings they did painting (fruit and veges) and in the after clay work (deer and a bowl). The clay is in for firing so photos will follow later. The fruit and vege painting was done by first drawing and cutting out each item then projecting on an OHP to enlarge and trace. The finished product is amazing and I'm going to hang it in my new office this week!
Last night we headed into Mission Bay - Harry swam in the fountain and in the sea while Georgia did her usual bookworm thing on the picnic rug. We headed home after yummy fish and chips from the Fish Pot Cafe.

This week the kids are off to the holiday programme at our school which won't be too exciting although Georgia is going to a scrapbooking class tomorrow to learn how to cover school books!
