Michael had worked the night before and added a few hours overtime to his evening. As he didn't get home until 02:00 we let him sleep in before we did the gifts in bed.
She had also spent time in the craft room creating this collection of cards and a gift tag.
Lachlan wasn't quite so well prepared and whipped this card up the night before!
Supplies: SU Beware Pirates Stamp; Spellbinders die; PTI number dies; SU cardstock and a piece of very old scrapbook paper from the bottom of a draw!

Kira was delighted to collect her school flute and embark on her instrumental music program. Lachlan got his trumpet out and they had a wee jam session with each other.
I may post a video later in the year, but for now a still photo is best :)
Kira started back to school first on 29 January into Grade 5.
Lachlan starts high school this year in Grade 8. We chose a private school, so his dress code has taken a more formal approach.
This is the day we collected the new uniform. He was very taken aback by the 'walk socks'. The hat wasn't available, so he had to wait until his first day to collect that.
Here is my wee boy ready for his first day.
I went to work and fortunately Michael drove him, as the roads were flooded.
This is the street where his bus stop is (submerged) . . .
and this is the school oval!
Here he is in his sports uniform (worn every Thursday) and with his hat on.
The rain resulted in significant flooding in the Ipswich and Brisbane areas. The poor chooks coop was awash as well, so they were invited up to the back patio.
While Michael slept the kids and I were planning an outing to Southbank. However it had been raining for a few days and we thought that it would be better to find an indoor activity. So we headed to Rocksports.
Here we are al harnessed up
I run through the safety check with Lachlan before he heads up the wall.
They both enjoyed their climbs and were very very brave.
The kids spent the night on a sleep over with our Easter camping friends. Then we had a sleep over at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast. We had anice meal in one of the many restaurants then headed to the Tap Dogs show. Which was very energetic and super entertaining.
