Busy week... Jaimie flew in late Wednesday night, we are beyond happy to see her, but unfortunately this is not a happy trip... her boyfriend Brendan, is here to attend the funeral of his friend, he was killed last weekend by someone who ran a red light, so it's a very sad time for them!!
Elizabeth, Roy is a Fire Protection Engineer, he takes care of the fire panels in shopping centres & highrises, he makes sure that everything runs smoothly & if ever there is a fire, the sprinklers, pumps etc, cut in until the fire brigade arrives.... he used to install the pipe work & sprinklers as the highrises were under construction, so he would be on scaffolding many stories up, so glad he doesn't do that anymore especially after the deaths of two men on the weekend... they fell 26 stories... one of the men was an uncle to a girl in Samuel's class, it's all so very, very sad!!
On to something a little happier, Samuel has been presented with a couple of awards, one for music & a Thumbs Up Award, this is an award for receiving 20 possies for good behaviour both in the classroom & the playground! As Samuel is in yr3 the possies are even harder to get, so we are very proud of our boy!! They had a possie party yesterday with food & games, everyone's name was entered into the draw for some great prizes & at assembly yesterday afternoon the winners were announced... Samuel won a ticket to Whitewater World, he was in total disbelief lol. he was called up 3 times at assembly to receive his ticket & his awards!! As it is end of term (woo hoo) there is always a school disco, Samuel was off first, they have two sessions for the upper & lower schools.. he was exhausted when I picked him up (it only goes for 11/2 hours) he told me the girls kept chasing him & telling him how handsome he was, I asked him how the girls looked his response "very pretty, they look so different with their hair down mum" lol.
I had a parent/teacher interview with his teacher yesterday morning & he has done extremely well, so once again we are very proud of Samuel!!
Ok now I've prattled on far too long,
Till next time... xx
