Hectic Life.....

Does life ever slow down??? We have been so busy. First we had our Festival parade and fireworks followed by Milson Island trip for Emma and Andrew and finally netball in Tumut and Canberra. Warning Photo Heavy
This was the first time the girls have marched in the town band for the Festival. they did really well considering they only had 1 marching practice.
and madam went down with her school- all the kids were so bright and colourful.
This year, Bridget has decided to have a go at netball with her friends. She hated Fun Net cause it was too boring. We'll see if she sticks to it!!
And Emma was selected in the Under 11 Development Squad for Tumut. So we had to travel to Canberra for her first carnival. Well it was the coldest miserable day in Canberra. The fog didn't lift until 1pm and then the wind howled. In other words we froze...
And the Milson Island trip....
we are still getting plenty of stories....

Kylie it definitely looks like you have been busy not just in outings but with creating. All your layouts are just beautiful. I particularly love your take on the SWAT Sketch and the orange background with the fabulous combination of patterned papers. Thanks so much for finding time to play along at Sketches with a Twist this month.
