Gingin Getaway

Freya, Sophie, Sofie, Libby, Max and Luc
Was just going through some photos on my phone and realised I never put any photos on the blog from our "school holiday getaway to Gingin"!! Back in April, we went to a friends farm for a couple of days and fun was had by all!! Gingin is only a 45 minute drive from our house, yet we felt like we were far, far away!!
3 mums and 6 kids and we spent the day exploring the paddocks and talking to the cows!!  The kids named all the cows and seemed to know "who was who". We made a big picnic lunch and then went out into a paddock and had a picnic with the cows!

Cross Country Carnival

Sophie and Luc had their school cross country races last Wednesday! It was Luc's first time and he had to run 750 m!!! He had a rough start and was accidently knocked over at the starting line and had to pick himself up, dust himself off and then run! He ran like the wind and soon caught up with the other 29 racers, overtaking them all! He placed third!!! A fantastic effort and he was so proud of himself!!!  He received a medal and wore it everywhere.... Even to bed where he continued to admire it before falling asleep!   Sophie had to run 1.75 km and she was not too thrilled about it!  As she states " running is really not my thing"!!!  Though proud of her efforts as well she placed 14 th out of 26.
