rainben

Ben's kindy are having a rainbow bridge celebration this week as part of the children's journey towards prep in just a few months..
The children dress in all the colours of the rainbow, we bring colourful food to share and the rest is a bit of a surprise !

I have had this fabric sitting around for years waiting for the right project, so here are the pants he will be wearing for the celebration...

And so will I was at it, I thought I'd whip up something for Arki.. I have been enjoying sewing lately, I had planned knitted Christmas gifts but might need to rethink.. :-)

a day at the bay


We were going to go away this weekend for three days camping, but looking at the weather forecast of more storms and lots of rain, we decided to cancel as nothing kills a camping trip more than wet beds and bored whinging children/teenagers who are stuck inside a tent..






We decided top do day trips instead. Friday we drove down to Byron for a swim and a picnic. We walked around Bangalow and left when the rain came, so we were happy with our decision to cancel the camping.
This beady eyed boy will not take off his next years school hat ! He was amazed to see an old time red phone booth at Bangalow.



Also stopped into Natures Child and spent a small fortune on Chrissy presents for the boys.

We have been to the beach each morning, I must admit to not really bothering to beach much over the last few years, with small children it is a bit of an epic, but the boys absolutely loved digging trenches, finding treasures, and of course running in the water.

I think it is worth the effort, I always feel calmer after some sand between my toes and once you get into a bit of a rhythm the whole getting organised and out the door thing is not too bad.
