Backyard Camping

April 4th, 2015 by Trent

The other week we decided to spend the night in a 3-man tent in our backyard!!! We had a BBQ dinner, toasted marshmellows and watched the Ratatouille movie on Dad’s laptop. We all managed to sleep from 10pm to 6am 🙂 Demi didnt let us do much talking as we went to sleep she told everyone to be quiet!

It was lots of fun and I am sure we will do it again.

We are now on school holidays and finished term 1 of year 1 and 2.

Liam is enjoying AFL, Karate, Swimming and Chess every week. Demi is enjoying her after school music class.

They both had lovely parent-teacher interviews and they are enjoying school (although there is always something to talk about that we arent happy about!)

Demi’s bottom front tooth is starting to really wobble! She cant wait to see what the tooth fairy will bring her!!! Stay tuned..

Demi LOVED her Jewellery party!

April 4th, 2015 by Trent

We had 10 children including Liam and Demi come to our house on Sunday morning and celebrate her 6th birthday.

We were lucky with the weather and had everyone in the backyard. We had two ladies come with a big collection of colourful beads and each person had a special jewellery making tray to create and build their bracelet and necklace.

The cake was a rainbow that Demi designed and she loved it! Thanks Flaky Tart 🙂

She got lots of lovely craft presents which we will enjoy doing in the holidays.

She also ended up celebrating with two other birthday cakes with family events.

“That is so epic!” is the word that is popular with the kids at the moment!

A quick update as we are now well into Term 1 and will be starting an early Easter break soon.

Jordan took some great family photos at a small beach in Vaucluse (near Vaucluse house). They will replace the kids baby photos we have next to the dining table.

Trent and I went to Billabong Retreat in Dural without the kids the 2 nights in Feb. It was the 2nd time there for me and this time it focused on meditation and mindfulness. We also did one yoga class but learnt to do a lot of meditation. I now do about 10 minutes of meditation every morning.

Demi was very cute the other night she told me very seriously she heard a noise in her room when she was trying to fall asleep and she came and told me – “it must of be one of the fairies checking to see if I had a tooth in my container”.

Kids have now changed from Thursday afternoon Jems to BJE Emet on a Tuesday and Thursday morning before school starts. Demi seems to LOVE it and Liam says it is OK- stay tuned. It is nice to have Thursday afternoons back!

The kids rooms have also changed quite a bit as they both now have IKEA white desks. They are enjoying them a lot! Much easier for them to their homework their now.

Liam recently got his training wheels off and is reasonably comfortable riding solo. He doesn’t seem to LOVE going for a ride though and doesnt like the idea that Demi wants her training wheels off for her birthday!!!

Liam started AusKicks on Monday at trumper park in paddington for the East Sydney Bulldogs. He will then start to play games on the weekend too. At the same time, Demi sees her spalding tutor Janie also in paddington on a Monday after school. She is doing very well and her writing is looking good too.

I am going to 4 days a week starting this week as my project gets very busy and needs to be launched end of Aug as an exhibition. Stay tuned for that too!

Back to school Yr 1 and Yr 2

January 30th, 2015 by Trent

The rest of the school holidays in Sydney were nice. The kids did a few camps, had days with me and some with Booba.

They got a haircut the day before school went back and started back at their new swim school.

Demi is now in Yr 1 with Ms Petifer and Liam is in Yr 2 with Ms Cawdarlic. From what I hear they are very good teachers 🙂 They have some friends from previous classes but I am also looking forward to them making new friends.

A new addition to our backyard is this great outdoor couch – we love chillaxing on it!

On Australia Day, we had a great family BBQ lunch and had a surprise visit from Aunty Keren, Uncle Will and baby Jayla – I just realised that I hadnt mentioned Keren had baby Jayla premmie at 35 weeks when I was in Bali. They came to show mum and she was sooo happy and got a bit teary too.
