Scrapbooking Again - NO don't beileve a word of it!!!

Well yesterday I spend most of the day preparing classes for the next few weeks, I have my normal Thursday night class, and also a weekend class and have decided to run a children's day in the holidays. Sooo most of my day yesterday was spent preparing the kits.

I have decided to do a little friendship book with the kids as most have not scrapped before I did not see any sense in doing a page for them to take home and put in the draw, hopefully this way I can teach them a few different techniques and use some groovy things so that they then can start scrapping themeselves on a page.

I am off to Sydney on Saturday for a 21st so, I should be able to pick up some bits and pieces there. I will post some photo's soon.

Then Royce had his first game which they also one and Royce scored two tries and converted, his second game was also against Tumut the boys played great with only nine players, Royce scored two more tries so he had a great day.

Today I spent the whold day cleaning, first I did the panrty (WHAT A BIG JOB), then the kids play room (EVEN BIGGER) & later  in the afternoon I dedicated my cleaning abilities to my SCRAP ROOM it now looks a million dollars and I can't wait to get in their in start working.

My scrap room was originally a section off our Garage, the was converted into my husband tool room/gym, until one sunday arvo I decided I could turn it into my scrap room. It has been avery log process but has now gone from concrete walls and floors to what I think is a very stylish little scrap room :0)!!!

YIPEEEEE a place of my own. (That's allowed to be messy). I will post some pics later tonight as it won't stay clean for long

This year in sport Royce is 8 but he has to compete against 8yrs and 9 year old boys, so he has a disadvantage this year but an advantage next year apparently it is only in public schools and only happens in this age bracket. Anyhow to compete at PSSA you need to come a place at your local school carnival, Royce came in third after 2 nine year olds so he was the first 8 year old boy home and this qualified him for PSSA. On Tuesday we took Royce over to Harden to run in his PSSA Cross Country, Royce had to run 2km and there were 80 children in his race, there were only a hand ful of 8 year old boys that made it to this level, Royce ran extremely well and cam in 35th place and was the first Gundagai boy home, his friend Sam from South School who is 9 also from Gundagai came 50th they both ran very well and we were very proud of their efforts - WELL DONE BOYS!!!!

Look out next Year :0)

Elf Potion

Today I spent the morning with Royce at School helping out as reading mum. I love to go in and see what all the kids are up to. The children have been learning to write procedures and today's was on how to make Elf Potion. The children had to bring the ingredients in from home and I can tell you not one of the Potions was the same.

Royce's ingredients were as follows:

Nutra Grain,Coconut,Vegemite,100's and 1000's,herbs and spices, garden mulch,tomato sauce, washing powder, elf juice and elf dust

Sounds nice I know - but they had fun!!! and I had fun helping.

Off to Wagga tomorrow with my sister - should be catching up on house work but it will keep :0).

computer troubles

Well besides not having the the time this week to be on my computer I am still having major troubles with Telstra, I am now resigned to the fact I am unable to get Broadband anymore and will have to stay with dial up - I am so annoyed with Telstra.

This week has been quite busy with Ballet and School reading, I had Scrap classes on Thursday night and then on Friday my nan and I went to Canberra for the day. My mum, Nan and myself had a great day looking around. I was able to check out some of the scrapbooking stores.

Saturday was sport day, Royce played football against Cootamundra they were beaten 3 tries to one and I went to Tumut to play Adelong in hockey we had a 2 all draw. Chelsea did not play today has she still as Asthma.

Today David had a few of his friends out to watch the Kosta vs Hatton fight a 9.00am start ended in a 7.00pm finish - and I was unable to get anything done around the house, hence no scrapping either.

This week looks to be a little quiter besides the after school routines with dance & sport I am hoping not to have too much on.
