I Want To Capture Them Growing Up

Here they are on the first day of school this year

and here they are today, on the last day of the school year
Their hair has grown
They are taller
They have learnt so much this year
In school and out
It has been a long year indeed


Wanted to take the same sort of photo, as the first day, but it has been pouring with rain so it had to be an inside photo
They were meant to have their last day out at a park for a school picnic
but instead have stayed at school indoors out of the rain
We are also meant to be having a BBQ tonight, for Dave’s work, but still waiting to hear about that one
The rain hasn’t eased at all, it’s just streaming down
Have already had to go unblock the drain near the garage as it had blocked and was flooding
Happy Happy Joy Joy :)
Right the winner of the buysterlighting voucher is….
Congrats!!!! Will be in contact so I can pass on your details to buyster and mail off some scrap goodies :)
Thanks to everyone who dropped by and entered :)

Things have gone into overdrive here
Dave is slowly putting up more lights, none out the front due to last years vandals, so the backyard is looking well lit!!
You can see here, when I used the flash, the back fence


and without the flash


love me some swirly light photos ;)


Yesterday was HOT, in contrast to today's cold and wet day
Lucy and I were excited to find 4 very cool letters waiting in our mailbox


each of the girls had a letter from Santa


Lucy had her jumper on because the air conditioner was on inside and it made her feel cold lol
Yesterday I scrapped this page

Loved the new Such Sweet Tierney buttons I got from London


Tomorrow is another full day
Visit Dad in the morning
Dave is having a carers day off as we are leaving Megan, Jessica and Lucy at Dad’s and taking Elizabeth in to hospital to have grommets
We visited the Ears Nose Throat specialist on Monday and he booked us straight in and hoping the operation goes well, clears up the fluid she still has on her ears and once the eardrums have healed we hope her hearing gets back to normal
Dave’s Dad rang the other day to say he was going to visit Saturday, for lunch and then again for dinner
We are thankful we get to see him and hopefully get to meet his girlfriend

No time to rest here lol
All go… go… go
and still lots to do
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy
