Catching Up

On Friday we went up to our school, Longreach School of Distance Education for Family Day and the swimming carnival.

The kids met their teachers and also their classmates. There were home tutor sessions with teachers as well as a session with regards all support staff. Nathan was very happy to make some new friends. I was happy to see there were still some familiar faces amongst the staff as well as families. Nathan was so excited to be wearing his new school uniform!

After lunch, Nathan competed in some of the 10m events and had a wonderful time in the pool.

Nathan had a fun birthday party with his friends yesterday afternoon. The kids all got on so well and eventhough Milli was the only girl, she was not left out.

His rocket ship cake was not as I’d hoped but he was happy with it, so that’s the main thing.

Our guests all stayed for a relaxing BBQ dinner before heading home.

This morning at 6am, we trucked 858 2004 drop ewes who are now heading for their new home new Goondiwindi. They loaded really well and we were home again by 8.30am. The rest of the day is fairly steady though.
