The PTA had a Fun Day organized at the school today - after some months of planning and organizing, a very successful day was pulled off. Thank the Lord for the stunner of a day - clear skies and mild breezes. So, there was a sausage sizzle which was where Nick found himself most of the day;
...various wares on sale or on offer for a donation - the kids painted these rocks during their art lessons in school in the week preceding the fun day; many rocks found their homes with their creators!
I contributed coconut ice to the cake stall - Caleb spent his own pocket money to buy a packet, bless him!
Face painting, three-legged races, egg-and-spoon races, tug-of-war, ice-cream sales...
And finally, a three-man catapult came out to. Nick allowed himself to be the target of water-balloon ammo. Sadly no one hit him, despite his best efforts to run into the flying ballons! Well done to all involved and thanks to all who came - what a Fun Day it was!
Had a brief rest at home before popping out to the Warehouse to shop for jeans for Nick's forthcoming birthday; our last arrangement for the day was tea at Andreas and Danielle along with Matt and Adele and the girls. We didn't know tea would be by way of a barbeque - such a treat and the perfect day for a 'braai'! This new bit of gorgeousness is Roxy, the Bothas' SA canine who has finally decided to immigrate to live with them permanently in NZ. She is the loveliest thing!
Enjoying the evening sun before going inside for tea and much laughter around the table!
