End of a Term

Well we finally got to the end of the first term, and to be honest it has felt like quite an achievement.
When i look at where we were on the very first day of the term it feels like we have accomplished quite a lot.

The first day was hard for me on many levels, mainly the social side. The good friends that i had met through the school and kinder in Brunswick were absent, and there seem liked such a long road ahead to make those strong connections again from scratch.

But i am happy to say that i have small handful of friends, and i am meeting more and more most days.

The kids have done really well and Hero seems to be more vibrant about school which is a relief.
Today on their last day they had to dress-up as what they wanted to be when they were older. Hero went as a professional Surfer! We made her a board out of plywood and she got to decorate it which she most enjoyed.
She has earn't a holiday. She had a term report that any parent would be most proud of, and most exciting of all,  her beautiful smile is back!

Banjo had a great term at kinder too. He was so excited to show me his home made butter that they made  with cream and a single marble at kinder last week! (Although) he refused to eat any himself)

He has had numerous play dates over the past weeks, and just tonight, we took him to Aus Kick registration at one of the most beautiful Footy ovals i have seen. It was a stunning evening, and the kids had a ball with their new footy's. His enthusiasm was a joy to watch, it will be interesting to see how he will go when the evenings get a bit darker and colder.

They had an Easter Parade on their last day of kinder and they all looked so cute sitting listening to there teacher and wearing their Easter Bonnets at pickup time, He is Banjo with his.

It has been a bit of a fustrating week. I thought i would update my operating system which was getting quite ancient apparently! And in the process my computer threw a tantrum!

I have been on the phone to help people for over a week! What has made this whole process drag on and on is that i don't have many opportunities to sit down at a computer and listen to instructions and concentrate, which is what is needed to fix the problem. Yesterday i had to erase my entire HD, which was very scary.

All my major application has been wiped and so now i have to find the original software in a box, stored away in Shamrock St ( no idea when i might get a chance to do that! )

So this is going to affect my photo's for a while, apologies.

We had a lovely day in Melbourne today, we went down just for the day to see Mum who cooked us a beautiful Sunday lunch. And since Hero has been missing her friends she had an old friend come and play, which she loved.

We all went to the park and i loved watching Banjo with Iggy, he often forgets that Iggy is so little and not the same age as him, but generally, he is fantastic to his little brother. No one can make Iggy laugh quite like Banjo.
