End of Term 4, 2013

As term 4 draws to a close we begin readying ourselves to migrate North. Before that happens we have class parties, kinder clean up day, a final round of sports and the club Xmas party on Saturday evening. Never a dull moment.

Yesterday Angus and Owen had their final swimming lesson of the year - and Angus' final lesson ever. Angus received his Maxi Green level certificate yesterday and Owen received a Super Effort certificate for his freestyle prowess. Great work boys.

Patrick is in his second week of holidays and enjoying sleeping until noon. Teenagers! He and Karen are both spending some time packing for Jamboree for which they will be departing on NYE.

Karen is also busy baking for class parties and organising everybody for the trip north. Last weekend Karen and the other Jamboree scouts leaders went to packing day at Calder Park. The aim of the exercise was to fit the gear for 40 people into 2x 2 cubic metre containers for transporting to Qld. And of course they nailed it!

Lily has her final kinder class today before a clean up day on Thursday. She's really looking forward to prep.

I'm working right up until Xmas Eve when I'll be working from Brian and Viv's before packing up the laptop until 30 January. But before then I've got an interview for a 3 month secondment position in one of our other businesses. It's a great opportunity so here's hoping.

Merry Xmas to everybody and all the best for a great 2013 :)
