I am on the countdown. 2 sleeps till I am on a plane on my own heading to my parents for 2 nights before heading down to Sydney to go to COLOUR 2011 with some wonderful girls. In all I will have 6 sleeps away from home! Can you believe it? I never thought I'd ever go to something like Colour as I've never been a huge fan of Hillsong but I need some Woman time...some refreshing of my soul and heart that can only come from being with your girlfriends. So what better opportunity than a Womens Conference...that is all about ONE Love, ONE Heart, ONE Sisterhood.
My dear husband who has been struggling lately with going to work then coming home and looking after the kids while I go out to band, singing rehearsals, exercise etc etc is so very kindly taking a week off work so that he can be home with the kids. Though he has a crazy plan of taking them for a drive to visit his good mate about 8hrs away! We'll see how that goes!! I have been trying to encourage him to find some activities that HE would like to do here and I do agree with him that there is limited things, esp being in his role in the town here. However he has agreed to go and play tennis fixtures and after his first game last week he came home excited which made me so happy. I really hope this is something that he can continue with and make some friends as well.
In other news, we have some big events coming up in our house as well. Mike turns 40 soon!!! My goodness....and for that event we have his parents coming to stay with us for just under 2 weeks! What fun...hopefully I can pull off a great party for him. Chloe has started saying some more words...Mumma, and nee - naa when she drives the little police car. Lachlan is trying to teach her Lachy and some days she makes a word like it and he gets very excited. He was Student of the Week last week at school - for always trying his hardest. He can now write his own name and he loves doing that all around the house! Josh is loving school and is really getting into writing and reading...especially now he knows all his sight words.
Well thats all from me at the moment....When I come back from Colour I will update again.
