Lots to Show and Tell

Kayley had her 11th birthday sleepover on the weekend and all went well.....i decided to give the girls a scrap album to make and keep for themselves...good choice cause they spent most of the time working on it...

Here are some happy pics from the party....and the cake i made which Kayley picked out from our family cake book.....

We also received some nice news about Kayley from school....

She wrote a poem for her cogs unit which reads:

Tumut River

T he Tumut River flowing on its bed
U nder the shade of the big river red
M eandering down past the farm shed
U p the cattle look from the green grass
T urning away as the river flows past

R oads and bridges cross nearby
I nterconnecting with creeks it flows by
V ery popular throughout Summer but not in July
E veryone fishing or swimming up and down the river
R elaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather

By Kayley Symons

Kayleys poem has been picked and to be published in a state wide book based within the Murray/Darling Catchment... a big achievement...and will be going up in the Hall of Fame at School like Emma did last year for her Artwork...


1st Challenge for the month of September is:

Since it is nearly Fathers Day I thought I would have a challenge for you this month to take inspiration from this 'Fathery' image below. Now you can take inspiration from quite a few things in the image. You could go for the whole Dad theme (which I have done) or just certain things from the image. The possibilities are endless!!!!!
