Heidi Swapp Edge Distressers will be instock next week!!!! WOOHOO!!! so watch out for those - and if you only want to order those I will send you a postage costing for the amount your order... or I can hold you slae order till they arrive - let me know!!!

Now to our holiday - and boy it was soooooo relaxing - thankfully as we are now back into the full swing of it here - preschool, school, scrap classes, oh and the fun stuff like a pile of bills, a green pool and loads of washing - all the fun things after camping!!!!
I got to scrap a few times which was great - the day I planned to scrap all day was about 42deg and it was way too hot to do anything - and nothing would stick!!!
So here are the few I did get done - not great pics due to light this morning....






And a bit of a photo share, I havent really looked thru the 550 pics I took [and i think Carol has 300 too] but on quick glance I have picked out these to show you a few things we got up to!!!

We posed



on our own....

and with our mates


We had slip and slide fun.....




even I had a few goes....

We rode rapids....

some gracefully

others not so....

We built new rapids....

We watched for the Platypus...

and watched.....

and watched!!!!

and he was so cute.... playing in the creek right near our campsite....

we saw heaps of wildlife....
some beautiful....

some scarey - we saw 3 snakes over our time there....
2 of these green phythons and a red belly - ewwwwww!!!!!

We got dressed up.....

We made new friends

We went 4x4ing.....

Jumped off rocks

and relaxed by the fire... even when it was 42degs...

and we had LOTS of attitude!!!

so I am VERY VERY hapy that they are going back to school today!!!!!

my boy is in year 6 this year - wow the years are going fast.... i think I am more sad about him starting year 6 than i was when he went to school [I didnt shed a tear back then].....



It is going to be so nice today just having Sienna home - peace - no fights and only toddler attitude :)

I'm off to set up for my class - and pack some orders - and cook lunch and clean up!!!! Have a GREAT day!!!!
and here's one for all the parents who have just spent 6 weeks with their kids at home....

You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
