February 2006

Madeleine settled back into school very easily. She is now in Year 1.
Lauren began Kindergarten very quietly, concerned that she was unable to read or write yet.
Oliver is now 'on his own' at preschool and is missing having Lauren there to play with. As he only goes on the days Jenny is working, he is enjoying having all the toys, TV, computer and Mum to himself.

Andrew took some long service leave, and he and Oliver went to stay with his family in Port Stephens for a few days. The girls joined them on the weekend.

We had a BBQ at Brent and Heather's place to commemorate 'Waitangi Day'. (6th Feb) Many of our friends originate from New Zealand so this was a fun thing to do. Brent made a heartfelt speech about the wonders and beauty of NZ.

Hannah and Madeleine

We spent a few days away in Berry with some friends. Unfortunately it rained the entire time, so we didn't get to the beach AT ALL. We all travelled in the Bradshaw's van which was very noisy, but the kids had a great time.

Rebekah and Lauren

Being in Berry meant that we were able to visit Sue and her kids in Nowra. Sue is a friend of mine from uni. She and her husband have almost finished building their own house.
