The girls were all very tired tonight- Lucy fell asleep while we were reading stories after her first swimming lesson tonight! She did so well and i was so proud of her. Its a big adjustment for her being in a class and having to follow instructions and to swim! She did so well - she had never swum on her back before and the first time just sunk under the water but by the second try had it sussed right to the end of the pool! The same for retrieving rings from the bottom of the pool- abit lost the first time- but then quite happy to dive right down to the bottom!
We have been so busy these holidays that they really have just flown by and the girls have been really good- and we have been lucky with the nice sunny weather so we have been doing lots of swimming and having friends over and multiple sleepovers etc etc....We had a nice surprise on Saturday morning when Granny appeared at the door for the weekend from Nelson! So the girls loved having their granny here especially the little 2 who just adore all the cuddles and love! I caught up with both my sisters briefly on Friday - one enroute to Perth for a holiday and the other enroute back to Dunedin. We took them both to Sumner Beach and they were both quite surprised by the damage from the earthquake. i took some photos but not allowed to feature my sisters...

I did the above layout on a crop night on Friday.. this was a layout that Lucy saw in one of my magazines and she loves rainbows and wanted me to make one just like it - it came with the free paper in the magazine so it was easy peasy...i had 2 copies of these free papers so she made her own version as well with the same papers! She has got quite into doing some scrapbooking in the last week - she definitely knows how to fill a page! She often says to me " mum can i do a beautiful picture for you in your room? awww
Well off to watch some glamour with Simon on TV...
