Last night we got some rain..at last!! It has been so long since the kids seen rain that Mia asked "Why is the ground so wet this morning?" That was this morning when we went for our bike ride to the park. I thought about it and I thought it was quite sad that she asked the question.
I have been reading and catching up on some blogs today and now I feel like having a nice cup of coffee. School has been so busy for the kids.
Last week the kids' school had the Deputy Prime Minister and The Minister for Education Ms Julia Gillard visit to help launch the Primary Connections "Schoolyard Safari" education block. It was an exciting time for Sarah especially as her class got to show the scientists and Ms Julia Gillard how they have began their Schoolyard Safari education.
President of the Australian Academy of Science Professor Kurt Lambeck was also there. He was heard to say, "The Academy is concerned about education at all levels and if we had a motto about this it would be: If Australia gets education right then everything else will succeed, if we get it wrong then nothing else matters." Too right I thought!
Parents got to stay after the assembly and see what the kids have done at school and Sarah had a magnifying glass to show anyone who wanted to look, segments of some rather large worms! She knew the names of them and what they do out in the garden. I ws very proud!
After Nicholas getting student of the week a few weeks ago I was pretty happy. Tomas went very well in athletics and Mia is growing up so fast that everytime I look she is gaining height on me :) Not hard to do when mum is so short ...right!
