|Get out the boogie boards, the rain is coming down hard!|
|Water slide and pool, the boys had an absolute blast.|
While the boys were occupying themselves in the back yard I took the chance to bake some bread and bottle the Kambucha. We usually get eight bottles out of one batch and it barely lasts the week. A very popular drink in our house and so good for you.
|Sometimes room in the fridge is an issue!|
|My reliable bread recipe, always turns out. Trying some sunflower seeds this time.|
We did have sunnier days after. They boys made up a new game called Trampoline Soccer. So far there haven't been any major injuries so I leave them to it. Love the imagination. Sometimes it includes the hose and sometimes it doesn't.
Gavin got a National Geographic book for Christmas from Uncle Andrew and Auntie Nic and has been wanting to try an experiment. Its how to make a cloud.

It went well but Lochy just didn't see it! It involved a bottle, a little bit of warm water, and a match and presto a cloud in a bottle. Gav loves science.
We also had Australia Day on Monday and had beautiful weather for that too. It was a busy day especially the day before school but well worth it. We had the morning on the beach with lunch and the afternoon at Wet n Wild. Not to many people at Wet n Wild, it seems the beach was the preferred place to be on Australia Day. We got several rides in including the "Black Hole", "Mammoth Falls" but there was no way I was going on "SurfRider". A 30 meter drop while spinning on a giant surf board. Luckily Lochy was with me in having no desire to go on that one!
So school has started and they are settling in to their new classes. So far Lochy is LOVING it as he tells me and super excited to go, yay! Gavin is making new friends that started this year and very happy as well. I dropped into the school office at Lochy's school and told them I am available for relief teacher aide work. Its all happening now.
In the next couple of months there is a good chance I'll be going away on a girlie weekend away, right girls? Plus seeing a doctor from America with Gav that's going to work with our doctor to see if there is any more issues that need to be addressed. Hopefully it might progress us further on Gavin's treatments. You can only try, otherwise we'll just keep doing what we are doing. Eating healthy home made food and taking our supplements and probiotics. Its good for us all :)
