My Weekend at ISC

Well were do I start - what a fantastic weekend. Arrived Friday morning met up with some friends and checked out the shops. Friday night had a great tea and met some girls that I only knew by name online, It was great to put a name to a face. Spent the night in the crop room just chatting and looking at some fantastic work.

The classes were all great and again Heidi was so inspiring. Her handwriting class was fantastic. The mall was chock a block with her products and lots of others - my suitcase weighed 9kg more on the way home :0). The gala dinner was a great night with all the girls having great costumes - especially the cocktails girls.

Excellent work Chelsea!!!! Today at the School Assembly Chelsea received her Bronze award. Our school as a system for crediting outstanding students. There are 3 levels Bronze, Silver and the biggie GOLD. To get to each level the students needs to have received 5 achievement awards. So each time you get 5 you go up a level it is very hard to get to Gold and not all students do so by the end of the year. Chelsea was very excited and posed of course for the camera.

30th Birthday

Today was to be my good friend Kellie's 30th birthday.

Happy Birthday KellieKel_smart 

Kellie died while travelling in India in June 2003. At first it was thought that Kellie was a victim of the heatwave which had caused 100's of deaths already in India. When actually Kellie had menigitis. She was so full of life and loved to travel. She had been to New Zealand, Thailand & Vietnam & for 2 years she spend time working throughout England, Europe & Africa.

    I miss her very much and will have a few wines for her tonight.

The kids competed in the yearly School Cross Country on Thursday of last week. They both competed very well and received a ribbon for their efforts. Royce had to run 2km with the 8 & 9 years boys. He came in 3rd and is now off to the next level to compete for Riverina representation. Chelsea ran 1km and was so proud of herself her very first Cross Country and she crossed the line in first place with the biggest smile.

Well Done to you both!!!
