Adventurer Camp, Leslie Dam near Warwick.
Kids had heaps of fun, Rachel got up on Saturday morning to chase the kangaroos lol
Saturday the wind picked up, and it was quite cold. but by Sunday the wind had gone and it was lovely!
wasn't much water there. we had a nice campfire, kids cooked marshmellows on the fire. we had Jaffles cooked in the fire for dinner on Sat night.
Was a good weekend, Kids had lots of fun, adults got along really well.
Melanie was awarded a Gold award at school.
It reads: "This award indicates that the student's effort and behaviour have been judged to be of a consistently very high standard, reflecting pride in self and school. "
So we are Proud as Punch of her.

She left for school this morning, and I came home and did a make over on her room. Painted a feature wall. Decorated with stencil painting, and hung the candle holder I got for her. it looks gr8 and she was in total shock when she got home.
it took me all day, 830 - 245 but its fantastic :D

May 26, 2010...
The day I lost my Father In Law.
Dad was diagnosed with a very aggressive strain of Myloma.
On May 26, he lost is battle with Cancer. it was a day I will never forget.
I had moved into my inlaws house (with Glenn & the kids) to help with Dad's Palliative care on Monday the 24th.. by that stage he wasn't getting out of bed for anything more than the loo..
he totally went down hill and then died at 1.07pm. a very quick passing. and Pain free.
The Funeral was held on Monday 31st a lovely service.

We Spent the afternoon letting the kids run wild at the Japanese Gardens. We were hoping for a bit more autumn colour. But it was still lovely. David & Adele joined us too! The big girls were at pathfinder camp, so it was just the little ones :)

Stand-Up Comedian and Qld Giggle Operator, Mark Gladman, is taking on the Kokoda Track along with CQ Camper, Cameron Brown, and a string of others in an attempt to raise $50,000 for Camp Quality.
In the process, Mark will also be writing a new book, "The Comedian Takes on Kokoda" proceeds from which will also be donated to Camp Quality. The book will look at the value of humour in the face of adversity with the Kokoda Campaign and the work of Camp Quality as the background.
Please donate to Mark's Trek Fundraising below, and come back regularly as updates the photos and video blog of his preparation!

God is going to SLURP us up to heaven, but he might get a tummy ache, so he will have to spit us out up there!
Ben has a preschool teacher, her name is Rona.. She has very black skin.. he was telling me that he didn't want to touch her black skin, but the white on the inside of her hand is ok.. We are in no way racist, this, he has come up with on his own (or from friends are preschool) so I am working on teaching him that there is no differece between colours. And God loves us all the same!!
its funny as I was only just saying to Mellissa today I wondered if their skin felt different, as it looks so shiny and smooth.. will it be like their hair being more coarse? Interesting indeed.

I was umming and ahhing as to what to do. and Now since I'm used to this I will continue!
2010 is the year for organisation!
today it started with arranging my desk in a useful manner.. before it was rather cluttered. And I hated what I saw every time I looked at it!!
I now have a nice lot of shelves to put my scrapping stuff. I have missed scrapping. and can't wait to get it organised and start into it again!!
now, I'm exhausted, so I'm off to bed.
