Happy 11th Birthday Harry!!!

Six kids, two adults and eight hours at a cold and wet Rainbow's End - sound like fun? Actually it was!!!! The weather was really good until mid afternoon when it cooled right down and we had a few minutes of heavy rain. The 6th kid was Georgia but she wouldn't go in the photos! That was yesterday.

Today is the actual birthday and Harry had fun opening his presents after negotiating with us last night to wake us at 7:15am! Some Lego, a drum and a few other bits and pieces from Mum and Dad, The Twits from Georgia, some Cars 2 Lego from Elaine and Barbara, cash from Ruth and Mike, cash from Mrs A, a worm farm from Briana and a few vouchers from some friends.

So today he wants to go on a shopping spree and then tonight we're off to the Sky Tower for dinner!

Go Georgia!

Woo hoo! Georgia played Goal Shoot for the first time EVER at netball tonight and guess what? She got seven goals and her team won 8-7. We are all amazed but the only thing is that both parents missed the game. It was the only netball game we have missed all season - typical! No photos sorry.

Georgia's Year 8 Social

Georgia is at her Year 8 (Form 2) Social tonight. There is only one social held every year. She was excited about going but even more excited about getting her hair cut and straightened!

Lauren's last day

Last week we said goodbye to Lauren. She's been looking after Georgia and Harry for 2 1/2 years and now she's off to Italy to do some nannying for a lucky family. We'll miss you Lauren!
