Easter break and uni assignments

Happy Easter! I hope your easter break was one filled with fun, family and laughter. We had a nice quiet break, I worked for a few hours and spent the rest of the time trying to get on a computer to complete a university assignment.

Oh the joys of having family who love computers and gaming. I eventually was able to log on for some time on monday, and nearly finished my assignment.

I did find out though that our school - Concordia Lutheran College - has a blog!! How cool is that!!

I spent the rest of my weekend doing some stitching!!

Off to drop kids to school and sick dog to the vet.

Many Happy Returns...

Well, the kids birthdays are over for another year.My, how the time flies. Liam turned 13 and Maggie turned 8.

Maggie celebrated her birthday at school, then at swimming lessons, and then went out for tea to Pizza Hut with family and a friend. We made birthday cupcakes to give out at school and swimming, to make the day feel a little more special.

Liam was away at school camp for his 13th birthday. It felt so weird waking up in the morning and not being able to wish him a happy birthday. One of the teachers on camp made him a birthday package with lollies and chocolates inside, and all the kids sang happy birthday to him. He chose to celebrate at Hogs Breath Cafe with family.
Both kids received phone calls from friends and family members which made their day. The annual Happy Birthday Song phone call from the Brumpton family is always received with much joy!!
So, to my two beautiful children, I wish you much joy and happiness this year. May you enjoy your year at school, make new, and enjoy old friendships, and above all learn to be your own person.
I love you both.
