We currently have a wonderful and her husband, staying with us for 6 weeks. Robyn and Peter have come to us through the Volunteers for Isolated Students' Education organization. Robyn is a retired teacher and she'll be teaching Nathan for 6 weeks, giving me a chance to do other things. She's an absolute godsend! She just had a week of teaching the DE papers with out any interruptions from on-air lessons....they resume next week. Nathan also had a cluster this week, so Robyn was able to meet his teacher and other staff from our wonderful school.

I have spent this last week catching on bookwork and end of financial year paperwork. No doubt there will be more I need to do, but only small things.

We are currently doing cattle work and are planning on selling weaner steers in the sale in town on Thursday. Let's hope they sell well.....


Isn't is wonderful when you look at your kids or photos of them and your heart just bursts with pride?

Meeting Oliver

These beautiful photos were taken by the very talented Samantha Burnett. Ollie was only 9 days old and it was hoped that he'd sleep through the photo shoot...well as you can see, he had other ideas and wasn't missing out on seeing  what was going on. 

I love this photo of he and his mummy, Kath. It speaks volumes.

A few weeks ago we went down to Brisbane to meet the newest member of our family, baby Oliver. What a gorgeous little snuggle-bunny he is! It's so easy to fall in love with this beautiful little boy. He's so bright eyed and not keen to miss out on anything that happens. 
Nathan could hardly wait to give Ollie and nurse and a big cuddle. He still tells everyone he's an uncle, but refers to Ollie as his cousin and not his nephew!


Meeting Poppy.

 Ollie has a musical mobile in his cot and as you can see he loves watching it.

 In these photos Oliver is 3 weeks old. All that hair (yep, as you can see, there's plenty of it!) makes him look older.
