Sewn Bookmark


L has spent a few days hand-sewing this bookmark and talking lots at the same time!

Both kids just got glasses. Too cute! R loves wearing his, L is not too sure yet. They also got prescription sunnies as well.

South Coast Camping


We have just returned from a camping trip at Bendalong on the NSW South Coast. We got back to nature at Conjola National Park, Narrawallee Creek Nature Reserve and Booderee National Park. Our activities included bush walking, wildlife watching, feeding stingrays, rock pooling, paddling, snorkelling, swimming, beach combing, fossil hunting, dune running, and four wheel driving. We spotted plenty of wildlife including fish, rays, crabs, jellyfish, kangaroos, bandicoots, goanas, parrots, sea eagles, plovers, oyster catchers, butterflies, red belly black snake and other things I've forgotten. Of course there was still time for the campsite's jumping pillow and water play area along with BBQs and ice-creams.

Pacific Island Ceramics


We finally got out Pacific Island inspired masks back from firing at Casula Powerhouse arts centre. L's on the left and R's on the right.

Cute Independent Writing


Just lately I have found a few pieces of independent writing of L's around the place. "Bee Lion" and "Bee Lion's Dad/Big Bee" are a couple of favourite soft toys. I love the illustrations!
