Life has been more than busy enough around here. I am not sooking- out about anything, just trying to find time to scratch myself is hard sometimes. Would I have it any other way? No.. of course not! I am lucky to be busy with my family, with my friends and well, even though work is very trying at times, I am lucky to have work.
Last week I was fortunate to go on an excursion as parent helper to Scienceworks with Sarah's class. I had a group of eight 9 and 10 year old kids. They all glued to me as we walked through the exhibits, thank the Gummy Mary! I was worried I would loose one of them there. I did point out where to meet up should one of them get distracted and loose our group.
We got to see a show in the Planetarium. It is much different to the old Planetarium we used to go to as kids. The technical aspect of it all was amazing. We learnt about different seasons and why they occur. We learnt about different constellations and other amazing things. I love this stuff! It was great to hear the kids say "Ohhhhh" and "Ahhhh". What made me laugh was the fact that they all giggled when the presenter was explaining how he was able to show us stars that are not able to be seen "with the naked eye". The word naked made them all chuckle. I had to explain what he meant by it to a few of the kids when we got out of the Planetarium.
Sarah understood, now, why we love camping out bush. It is partly so we can look up and see all those stars, planets and the Milky Way so very clearly. That is one of my favourite reasons for camping out.
Last week it was great to have had a lift to work with a girl who lives close by and works at the same place I do. It was nice to have someone to chat to as we drove in for our night shift, and then to chat to on the way home. It has been a long time coming, but I work casual and she full time, and our shifts do not always correlate.
Tomorrow there is a theme day at school for my Primary School kids. Mia is now a Cats supporter, Sarah is a Bulldogs supporter and Nick..he stays with the Tigers. I will endeavour to get a pic of them all together in the morning, but that is hard to do when they do not stand still for five seconds!
