It's all happening. This time of year is always busy, it all seems to be snowballing and before I know people will be pulling up for christmas lunch.
We've just done Halloween. Kids everywhere, it was awesome. Awesome to take my kids out this year too. Summer was on to it after the second house and couldn't wait to get out of the car and get to the front door with her purple bucket. Boggy stayed home and gave out the treats this year.
I cracked up laughing as soon as I had finished painting her face, she looked bloody funny, a bit cute and just the a bit spooky. They both have enough candy to keep them going for a long while.
Yesterday Izzy had her gymnastics concert. She did so well, cartwheeling, somersaulting, trampolining and balancing along with the other Tiny Tots.
The head coach is retiring and there is no one willing to take over, so kindergym and tiny tots may not be carried on next year. I may have to ask if she can go straight into the five year old class, because she is so keen and after seeing the other gymnasts perform today she is already trying and doing some daring shit.
This week will be busy too. Our local show is on this coming weekend. I've entered Izzy in the kindergarten individual section of the indoor displays. This involves seven classes in the competition. A painting, a drawing, a craft piece, 3 decorated biscuits, 3 chocolate crackles, 6 hens eggs, a vase of flowers. It's going to be fun. She's done the drawing and the craft item so far.
I've entered 26 photos in the photography section. This is one of my favourites I took a year ago of the Beachport jetty for the black and white class, and one I took last week for the class 'a touch of blue'.
It's the first time for both of us entering stuff in the show, we're going to drop them off on Thursday for judging on Friday morning. Excited for both of us. It doesn't matter if we don't win anything, at least we joined in.
The girls will have a joint birthday party on Sunday, Izzys 4th and Summers 2nd. I'm not even going to attempt to make two cakes this year, I am going with already made off the shelf at Woolies for Izzy(she wants Spiderman), who knows what she will choose come Saturday arvo. Summer is having an icecream cake straight from the freezer section! No superwoman cape for me this weekend, thank gawd.
Is your life busy, busy, at the moment?
