I went camping!!






Bonjour,
Last Friday I went camping with daddy , Mummy and our friend Dan. We went to Moore River. I had never been there before and it wasn't too far away from our house....(only an hour north, mummy said!) There was a river and an ocean there. I liked swimming in the river more than the ocean because the waves in the ocean were SOOOOO big. Bigger than our house, (OK, maybe not that big!) When we got there Daddy and Dan put up the tent, then I went in and played for a little while and read some stories to my baby. Then Mummy and I walked to the beach but that's when we discovered the huge huge waves, so we went to the river and also went back to the campground , first stopping at the playground. I loved it.

It was so much fun. At night time it was fun reading more stories in the tent and then in the morning lots and lots of funny crows were making very funny sounds. I thought it was so funny and I kept asking Mummy if she could hear it as well but Mummy just kept telling me to go back to sleep because it was very very early. In the end Mummy and I got up and went for a walk to the river and to the playground....(even though Mummy said it was only 5.30am in the morning!!!) No wonder I slept all the way home in the car!!!!!

Love Sophie

Buzy Kidz

Bonjour,
I had a great time at "Buzy Kidz". It was so much fun. At first I was a little nervous because we were there early and we had to line up outside the doors and there were lots of kids and Mummies (and a few daddies). Then the doors opened and we all went inside. One of my teachers straight away asked me my name and I said (quite loudly) "My name is Sophie"!!! (Mummy was slightly shocked by this as I am normally very very shy to strangers....and sometimes even shy to people I know!!) My teacher said, "You are our only Sophie, there are no other little girls here today called Sophie". Wow, I gave her a huge smile because then I felt special! She said there were 3 Jordans and I said, I know one Jordan too!!!! After that I handed over my fruit and my cheese and vegemite sandwich wrapped nicely in a brown paper bag and in my special new lunchbox because my teacher was going to give it back at lunchtime.

Then Mummy gave me a kiss and a cuddle and I was left to play with everything. A teacher called Helen came over to show me all the playdough things, then I went and played in a cubby house, then played with the dolls. Then we had to all sit on a mat and the teacher said she was very happy to see us all and that "Buzy Kidz" is all about having lots of fun!!! Wow, I thought, I sure am going to love it here!! We did singing, then painting and I made a butterfly, then we played outside in the sandpit.

Before I knew it, it was lunchtime, then storytime and then Mummy came back to get me. I did have a very good time but I told Mummy that I did feel a little bit sad for her when I thought about her and that I wished she could come to Buzy Kidz too........(but that was just to make her feel OK and not be sad that I didn't really think of her much!!!!).

So, yes, I will be happy to go back next week. Maybe soon I will know the names of the friends I have made because right now I don't know their names .........but I know none of them are called Sophie.......only ME.

Bye Bye
Love Sophie

My week

Bonjour,
I have had a busy week. Mummy had to work 3 days this week so on Tuesday I went to stay at my friend Ella's house so her Mummy Jo could look after me. Jo took us to a playcentre called "Go Banana's". It was mostly fun but sometimes I got a little bit sad for my own mummy. When we got home to Ella's house we had lots of fun playing with all her toys and babies and we also did drawings. Ella told her Mummy that we are going to get married because we love each other!!!!! Jo just laughed and said, maybe wait to see how you feel when you are older!!!!! Ella's babies are all called Ana after my friend Ana that came to stay with us. When Mummy came to pick me up I said I wanted Ana (real Ana) to come over to my house for a sleep over but Mummy said she has gone back home on the plane with Samuel and Alex and Scott and it is very far away. As far as Canada I asked????? Mummy said it is just as far! OHHHHHH :-(

On Wednesday I went to Julies house with Ella and Will and Oliver. I love going to Julies. We play dress ups and train sets and of course babies!!!! Then we play outside in the sandpit and on the play equipment.

On Thursday I go to Nanny and Grandpa's house. They took me to the beach, my favourite beach with the playground and where the waves are not too big. I think I impressed them with how well I can swim now and how deep I can go! In the afternoon we had a tea party in their backyard.
On Friday, Mummy took me to the movies!!!!! I saw "Chicken Little" and had a box of popcorn. It was so much fun and I laughed out loud. My baby came too and she liked it also.

On Saturday, Mummy, Daddy, Sasha and I went to a special beach where you can take dogs. Sasha was very happy that she got to come too. There were lots of other dogs there as well but they were all nice and friendly and liked to come up and sniff me. Sasha liked to sniff a lot as well and it makes me laugh when she sniffs other dogs bottoms!! I swam way out in the water and there were some nice waves and I swam over them. Sasha just liked to chase the ball over and over again. After the beach Sasha had a bath to make her smell nice.

On Sunday I went to church with Nanny and Grandpa. I hadn't been to church for such a long time and it was good to go back and say hello to all my friends there and sing all the songs at the top of my voice........(no one is louder than Grandpa though!!!!!)

Now that brings me to today. Today is Monday morning and soon I will be going to "Buzy Kidz". It is like a school for 3 year olds just like me. It is every Monday for 4 whole hours!!!!!I am very excited as Mummy and Daddy have been talking about how great it is going to be all week (which makes me a little bit curious!!!!) I have a new lunch box that Daddy bought me and I love it so much that I have actually slept with it in my bed the last 2 nights. Of course, it didn't have any lunch in it at the time!! So soon I will be meeting my new teachers and lots of new friends. I am a little bit scared but I won't cry because I know that Mummy is going to come and pick me up when it is all finished.
Ok, so back later to tell you all about it!
Love Sophie

Out of the mouth of Sophie......

A classic Sophie moment whilst doing the grocery shopping and going up and down the aisles .......

Sophie: Mummy, what are you saying???
Mummy: (quitely mumbling under her breath items we needed to buy....salt, sugar, milk..etc)
Mummy: Oh, I'm not saying anything
Sophie: Yes, you are, I can hear you, what are you saying
Mummy: Oh, I really am not saying anything, I am just thinking to myself
Sophie: Well, can you please think louder so I can hear you!!!!!!

The whole aisle of shoppers including Mummy laughed out loud yet Sophie had no idea what was so funny!!!!
