Beverly Hills is awesome. Loving it. love Starbucks. Great friendly people. LA is a long way from Perth but worth the journey.

Today's the Day

Woke up ready for the big day. First up there is Mark's School Assembly. He's at School for the morning only. Then, cleaning out the fridge, not a fun job really. I still need to do final packing for myself and help Damon finish off his. Not looking forward to trying to sleep on planes. Might have to lie down for a while today.

Scitech Animation

My 10yo had an outstanding nomination in the Scitech Animation competition for his age group. We went and watched all the nominees animations last night. One of his classmates one their category and she deserved it. It was a lot of fun and great for the kids. We also had a sneak peak of the planetarium's next film and had a look at the galaxy we live in, which was truly awesome.

Only one more sleep. Wow.

More packing

Mark is now all packed, Paul made a good fist of it yesterday. Just Damon and I to go. We're the hardest so that will be a challenge for today.
Getting a nice early start.

Getting excited now

Only 5 days to go til we go on our overseas holiday. Am I getting excited? Yes. Have I started packing? No. Should I be packing? Probably. I was going to help Mark pack his bag today but he's been to a sleepover and is now fast asleep.

My boy and my new toy

I'm really thrilled. I have a new camera, the Canon 550D. Here's a great photo I took with it yesterday.

Look at that soccer ball in mid air
My point and click can't do that

Did you decipher the title? My Father in law has come over from Victoria for a visit. I made a special Kaisercraft off the page album for him for Father's Day. I gave it to him today. He loved it. Here is a pic.
I used Country Grove and What A Hoot mostly.
