It's Friday!

And believe me it could not come any sooner! In about 15 minutes I will switch off my computer and head home (to work there over the weekend - yes, the load is huge at the moment).

But let's take 5 minutes to re-cap last Friday when the Princess swam in the grade 1 gala. We were warned that they swim about 12 to 16 breadths of the pool and based our sponsorship on that. Just to be floored by our Princess who together with two classmates made for a new class record of 22 each! I am a very proud, but poor mom!

    1. They did it class by class at the shallow end of the pool sy they can walk if needed ( some kids can not really swim yet) - she swam ( mostly) because its a lot faster, but did walk now and again.

    1. It's a fund raiser to buynextra equipment etc for the grade 1 classes. The school she ismin is very lightly funded by the government but mostly by parents so the money is used to buy new equipment etc. in return, we get smaller classes and better teachers ( they are 21 in the class). Plain government school ratios is almost double
