Emma's BIG Netball Day

Emma had her first game of Modified netball and really enjoyed it...she loves getting in and trying to get the ball...she has even scored a goal! Having played Fun Net for many years, Emma has an advantage over the other girls....

bridget had a go at Fun Net but lasted 1 game...she might be a Soccer girl i personally think!

What my girls got up to...

My 3 girls decided to raid my scrapping paper and they came up with these....they might keep the birds out of our garden...they are very friendly looking scarecrows!

May 123 Challenge

Been a Slack Blogger

Sorry i have been really slack....lots going on in the Symons world! Bridget has new glasses and she looks amazing and loves them...i thought she wouldn't take to them at all but obviously she had trouble seeing and they make a difference! The girls played their first game of netball last weekend and they both lost but had close games. Andrew and i travellled to Wollongong for a friends wedding...very simple but nice

Got a walk to school day tommorrow....the girls are looking forward to this but i'm not! Get their school photos back tommorrow so i'm looking forward to seeing them. I am the fundraising organiser for the Tumut Preschool this year so i have organised to have a giant big toy stocking for our major prize..we have a street stall before the end of the year and is always popular within th tumut community...
