Swimming Carnival.

Zoe had her first swimming carnival on Monday for Ellison road PS. she was really nervous as she has not had the chance to go to this kind of thing before and Zoe is not a strong swimmer. but she went in the lizard lane 6 times(6 x 25mtr) and went into the novelty races.
then Zoe decided to swim to earn a point for her house team and went into the 25mtr race. she came last but we don't care it was the fact that Zoe gave it a go that i was so proud of her!! the teachers aide also swam beside Zoe in case she struggled.
here r the pics.

Zoes cards. Valentine's Day entry for simon says challenge.

Zoe decided to make Valentine's Day cards this year. how an 8yr old has 4 Valentines is beyond me but she insisted, so i let her loose in my craft room and she went crazy. I have to say i was impressed with the chicken card as she even shaded and gave them shadows! And i genuinely did not give her any help!
a lot of glitter glue and stamping later...Zoe had made these cards for, Hamish,Thomas,Alex and Nevin.
i hope Simon says likes them as Zoe put heaps of effort into them...plus the colours actually matched this time(Zoe has Irlen syndrome so she wears blue glasses... which does affect the colours she sees sometimes!)

missed me?

sorry there has been no posts since Australia day buy a certain daughter of mine took it upon herself to download Pokemon movies online and used all of our download time for the month so our speed went from 1500 adsl to 56kp dial up!!! i was NOT impressed. but the new months is on from today and Zoe will not be going near the PC unless supervised! so i will update tomorrow!!!
