FATHER'S DAY

We enjoyed a lovely day together for Father's Day this year.
We went to church together and then decided to go and get Subway and head up to top of Mt Archer for a picnic lunch and a walk along the new board walk through the trees.  It was one of the new additions to town whilst we were away on our trip last year and we hadn't got to visit it and see it yet...

It was a delightful day, perfect weather, blue skies and lots of other people had the same idea as us as there were people everywhere up there enjoying the weather and having picnics.

Beautiful views overlooking Rockhampton

Perfect weather, perfect day...
Our lunch
 After our lunch we decided to go for a walk along the new tree top walk around the side of Mt Archer.  It is still not finished yet, and I am sure it will be amazing once it is...  The new section will take you to another lookout which will give you views of the Capricorn Coast...
Amazing views of Rockhampton

 And then the walk way
 From here we headed back into town.  We had a couple of things to pick up from the shopping centre so whilst we were there we decided to go have ice cream together as a treat.  We have both been pretty good with our eating this past couple of months, avoiding where we can foods with chemicals or preservatives, and whilst this ice cream is expensive, it is made on the premises and has not added chemicals or preservatives so we were going to enjoy this treat....

So good - Rum and Raisin, and Ferraro Roche Chocolate ice cream...
 We decided to go for a drive out to Pink Lily, Alton Downs and Ridgelands, and then head through the farming landing back across towards Gracemere and home.  It was a lovely afternoon together and we really enjoyed it.

Highlight for Steve was getting phone calls from all his kids.  Feeling so incredibly blessed...
We are all so blessed to have this amazing man as husband, father and grandfather.

HER FIRST BOOK WEEK:

She was so excited about getting dressed up for Book Week and went through her book case with her Mum to find a book character that she could represent.  In the end she decided to go as Ralphy the Book Thief....

Then it was time to find a costume.  Well Sarah shopped high and low for a blue and white striped t shirt and in the end decided to paint it herself.  Willow was very excited to help her and went to get length to describe to me exactly how her Mum had done it using sticky tape on the T Shirt.

She helped her Mum write the words " I live books".  As Ralphy was a male rabbit, they decided to put their own twist on it and Willow wore pink boots with a flower attached to her bunny ears.

She looked super cute and had a wonderful day.

 Once again they did a writing task about their Book Week and Character.  I am so proud of her,  she is doing so well will almost 200 sight words under her belt and reading at a level 8 or 9.  This week she even got an award for her reading and scored a new book.

 Love seeing her so excited about her learning....

WILLOW'S SPORTS DAY...

Willow enjoyed her first sports day at school last month.  She is definitely not a runner coming second last in her race but she so enjoyed the activities that they held throughout the day and she proved to be a real little team player.  Her favourite activity was the Egg and Spoon Race and she did a great job at writing it about it the following day....

Running her race
 I must admit from a Preppie,  I am very impressed with her writing and spelling.  She is pretty good with her phonics and actually sounded all these words out herself...

She is also a pretty good drawer for her age...
 Just documenting these wonderful moments in her life....  Time goes past way too quickly...
