Lovely friends.
Lovely morning.
Happiest of birthdays to you H!

Friday Sand Sculpting

The group sand sculpting gathering has been fun on Friday afternoons.
What a relaxing way to spend the end of the week.
(this was Jabba the Hut...?)

Educating - This Term

This Term Jarrod started Year 8.
Harrison started a new year 5 DE curriculum.
They both attended Robotics classes, Physics class, writing/book club 
and Piano and guitar lessons.
Through the DE school we attended an activity day where we
participated in drama, art and Sports activities.

Writing stories has been of big interest this term and
both the boys are entering their work in competitions.
lots of fun (and cash prizes!).
Next term we are planning on attending two musicals, 
writing our own screenplay in bookclub,
resuming gymnastics and hosting a 
Science Fair!
Bring it on. 

Sandcastle Sculpting

Dad had all the tools.
Jarrod made the M.Falcon.
It was funny how many men stopped to look,
as if they wanted an invite to play!
Next Friday we have another sculpting date with friends at the beach...

Physics Class

We have enjoyed our first lot of Physics classes with Mr Dash.
Not only have we understood velocity, vectors and formulas, but I now know 
how to use Excel on the Macs and graph our results from experiments.
Can't wait for what is next.

Boys on the Green

Just hanging.

A New Craft

A friend was kind enough to show H a new craft and leave him some
to practice with.

Lego on the Walls

No room for Lego minifigures?
Pop them on the wall.
Plywood, router, glue gun.
The Ewoks have taken over the desk.

Gold Coast

A quick trip to The Gold Coast.
