Cross country and a general update

miss K had her cross country at school this morning, she was a respectable 28 out of about 50 girls, so I am pretty happy for her, not first and not last.

Unfortunately this being Palmerston North it decided to start drizzling after her group came in so the next groups of kids all ran in the drizzle, we decided to come home to our nice warm house instead. The kindy kids came over and watched too, its really awesome that school and kindy share these events, the kindy kids become spectators and see what things are happening at school, and see their bigger friends doing things, and the school kids have their wee siblings there to cheer for them.

L starts smart start on the 21st of June, its a program that school runs where those kids that are due to start school in the next term go to school on a Monday afternoon to see how things are done and get used to time there, this is as well as the school visits that they do too. I think its a great idea and will be good for the transition from kindy to school. K didn't do it as we were still in Oamaru when she was ready to do school visits,

Its neat watching L become more confident and ready to start school, wow in a couple of months I will have 2 children at school.

Miss K is doing great at school too, shes really blossoming this year, her teacher is very caring which I think helps too, K did an awesome job at her school assembly last week and I was very proud of how well she spoke and how clear and articulate she was.

Our two littlies are doing great too, Mr O is nearly fully toilet trained which is awesome and saving some $$ with only night time nappies, hes started talking a lot more lately too which is nice. Miss N is 6 months next week, shes started sitting by herself for short periods which is cool, shes very awesome and I am still really enjoying having her in our family

love D

Yay for K :) i have Brianna home today as shes pulled a muscle in her leg and im also recovering from a migraine. Quite glad we weren't out in the rain seeing how we have just got over colds.

I read your blogs D, i enjoy reading them :) I was thinking also, about your request for ideas on what to make ... have you thought of making MCNs? I know quite a few people that make them on TM and you can buy material quite cheaply online at greenbeans etc. You could fasten with velcro or invest in a snap press if its something you were interested in doing.

yeah the weather wasnt the greatest for it. I have thought about mcns but there is little room for profit if that makes sense, I am trying to think of things that are simple to make and have a good price for sale...

Didn't you totally feel for the kids when they were doing their practices for the cross country. They were running 3 times a week at our school..brrrr!

Good luck on your entry for the chocolates over at my blog.

Always nice to "meet" another mother with 4 kiddies!
