How excited was I... Christian decided that this year he was going to start playing Rugby League so our local team is Palmerston Raiders! Check out some action snaps from our first game! We won 40-0. He is out on the far wing... can't wait to watch him during the year
So school holidays have arrived and I took the afternoon out of the office ( still working and answering the phone ) to spend with the kidlets are the Wave Lagoon at the Darwin Water Front.... I must admit... I miss taking holidays...
A little down time with one of my favourite scrapping mags :)
So whilst we were at the dog beach we took off down one of the tracks and visited the Sandy Creek Watch Post for a look see as we do... was a very long 800m from the dog beach but was a lovely walk with Deefah and the kidlets
Someone was attempting to dry out!
Would have been amazing to have seen what they guys would have seen back in the day
So with Anzac day quickly approaching us, I found out I had a couple of men within our family who served in War and luckily returned home safe to us.

On a different note, Caitlyn has completed an assignment comparing the World War 1 3 Day Iron Ration pack with that of the our modern day force ( single day ration pack ). The result was a B+ and it was taken so very well by her class mates. She even made her own batch of HardTack Biscuits to share with them!
What a fantastic job she did! So proud of both my kids and how patriotic they are!
Yes well given our girl is a Bull Arab, Wolfhound, Staghound Mix ( I know right, Toni, get a larger bred of dog! ), we thought she would be better off getting some training happening at an early age... So we are are off to puppy school. We have mastered, sit, down ( or stop ) and are working on roll over and stay... She's so placid and is the top of her class...
Must have been a big first lesson...
We will also be learning shake hands and hi 5! Just what every puppy needs to learn
