the year in review – 2/12

Since my Project 365 is rapidly coming to an end, I’m going post a link to my favourite post from each month this year over the last 12 days of the year. It’s fitting that today was Juniordwarf’s last day of school for the year, as February’s ‘back to...

P365 – Day 355 – the end of school

Today was Juniordwarf’s last day of school for the year. When I dropped him off today, I took a few photos of him in his classroom, the room he’s been in for the past two years – last year in pre-kinder and this year in kinder. A room that...

P365 – Day 353 – posting

Remember how I said that normally we have most of our Xmas wrapping, posting and cards done by now and that, for some reason, Xmas has crept up on us this year and found us somewhat disorganised? I wonder where we’d be without Express Post? All of the interstate...

P365 – Day 352 – Farm Bar (18/12/2011)

Here are some photos from today’s trip to Two Metre Tall. Cheers! Some Huon Dark Ale How’s the serenity! The men in the man cave. No ladies allowed. Beef Ashley and Jane hard at work Ashley entertaining the punters...

P365 – Day 350 – report day

Juniordwarf got his end of year report today.  It spoke of his enthusiasm, his willingness to do what is asked of him and his curiosity. Of all the ‘core markers’ for Kinder students, there was only one that he didn’t meet, so he has made a lot of progress...

P365 – Day 349 – silly season

According to Juniordwarf’s count-down tree calendar there are 10 days till Xmas. Normally by this time of the year we’ve finished all our shopping, sent our Xmas cards, and mailed our gifts to our interstate relatives. As of today we haven’t written in any Xmas cards or even wrapped...

P365 – Day 348 – graduation (14/12/2011)

Lil Sis and I attended our mother’s university graduation ceremony tonight. This is not the first time she has graduated from a university course. We counted up at least seven qualifications that she has. Lifelong learning indeed. Well done Mum! Every now and then (and especially when other people...
