Demi’s Kabalat Shabbat

August 17th, 2012 by Trent

Today Demi had her first Kindy Kabalat Shabbat – very cute to see!

It was about performing little Shabbat songs for us parents and to see and blessings they are learning as well.

Demi did well – although sometimes a little distracted – like taking off her cardigan and perfectly putting it on the back of her chair! She looked beautiful and sang nicely – so proud!

Learning AFL

August 17th, 2012 by Trent

Liam has a best buddy Nico at kindy that is originally from Melbourne so he always talks about AFL and Liam does too now.

So when Uncle Peter and Aunty Pauline (from melbourne) came to visit recently, Uncle Peter taught Liam how to play AFL in our backyard.

He had lots of fun and was getting good at his kicks!

Demi joined in too 🙂

London Olympics

August 15th, 2012 by Trent

The Olympics were recently on in London and the kids got into the Olympic spirit at school.

They saw the opening and closing ceremony on the TV which was spectacular.

Then throughout the 2 weeks they watched some of the raes such as diving, sailing, pole vault, running and swimming.

At school they learnt about medals and how it is ok not to win and just try!

Liam’s class also had a week of circle of interest in sports and he had to present about ‘table tennis’ and he brought in the bats/balls that we bought for a bargain at kmart!

This week they had an olympic day and Liam had to dress in Blue and Demi dressed in Red. They did fun games such as egg and spoon races, cycling and parachute.

Shabbat Box

August 14th, 2012 by Trent


Liam and Demi each get a turn to take the class shabbat box home.

It is a lovely tradition that the class has and once a week a child gets to take the suitcase home.

Both Liam and Demi have had a turn now. It has a book, teddy bear, prayers, challah, kippa, candles, cup and a book that you have to write/draw stick in photos of your shabbat experience. It is to create a collection on how everyone celebrates shabbat each week in their home.

Before and After

This is a comparison of me when Liam was about 3 months old compared with January of this year.

So August 2009 to January 2012 (approx. 25kg loss)
