A Week of Achievements

For the last couple of weeks Meg has been returning home from school with updated times of her Cross Country if you knew Meg you would find it quizzical that this even interested her let along cause her to participate in the first place. This was the child that wanted running lessons in year four from dad so she wouldn't come last at the sports carnival........

Forward to Wednesday.....
May I present 


We are so proud of her and her willingness try something new and take the challenge to do it well.....
Now onto the Interschool carnival in a week or so.

This week has also been book week at school...while Meg was focused on running, the little guy has been focused on wanting a cool costume....after many changes of mind and mummy refusing to go and purchase a ready made costume....( after all it is book week and not the Oscars!)

May I present 
Peter form Narnia.....

I convinced him with the sword I borrowed from my work storeroom.  After that I had him in the palm of my hand....

Now the achievement part is that I gathered supplies from around the house and pulled together this "interesting" interpretation of a costume in just  1/2 hour !!!

all except the Lion that was requested on the front...hmmm a dodgy attempt at being a graphic artist...( but remembering it is only book week Year 1!)

He was dressed upon my return form the gym this morning ready to go......
Unfortunately as the time to leave grew closer, he began to give into the doubts...
".what if they laugh at am I going to play basketball at lunch time with the big boys?"

Thankfully a mummy's hand to hold on the walk to school and the envy of the boys in his class over the large sword, soon put to rest all those doubts!
Phew over for another year.

Edited:  We  He won an award  for his costume....   A very sweet new book!
