Finally Here.............

with a big catch up. It has been a really busy couple of weeks. I really do need to blog more, so much happening, so many little conversations. The girls are on holidays now, which I love, I get to spend each day with my little gems. The first couple of days are always a little challenging as they are overtired from a busy term, have to have boundaries reset in their little brains & trying to keep them occupied for quite a few more hours. Liv is loving having them home as it is very quiet during the week without them here. Some other things that have been happening -
Lucia is riding her bike with no trainers (she has been doing this for awhile now, sorry baby Mama is not a good blogger)

& Liv is riding a big bike now not her little trike.

They are all very excited & this is a bit of a ritual where they all ride around big netball fields near us & I try to go running!!! LOL

Here we are camping, Georgie & Lulu rode the Mal with Daddy, Georgia stood up but Lulu just rode on it like a boogie board. Georgia really has no fear of the surf (definately better than me) & I am stoked as I have always wanted them to be confident around water.......I guess it is in the genes with their Dad. I love that he spends so much time with them, not only teaching them practical things but also spiritual & emotional. I love this man & look at my girls go.

Camping was really very enjoyable this time in the camper (you can't really see it here but it rocks). I got to read & relax & spend time just hanging out with my beautiful family. I precooked all our meals so we just had to heat them up. Awesome!!! I have always joked that I love sleeping under the stars, preferably 5!!! but I think Ant might be winning me around. There is something great about the simplicity of camping. I always find my devotional time is really important at this time. Just a place to BE & really listen to what God is trying to tell me, spending quality time with the family without technology or distractions & just enjoying the peace & quiet.

And lastly some scrapping......

(this was a scraplift from here, my very clever friend)

a card for one of my other friends....

Britt & I.....

I have more to share but that will have to do for the moment. Have a great Tuesday.
Love Me xxx
