WOW !! The amount of paperwork involved in Homeschooling is amazing !!  The file system I started with is going to have to be revised.  Also, the children often need their completed books if they’ve had concept descriptions or diagrams in them etc.  So, I’ll need to find a file drawer/system for them to have on their desk.  Seems easy right? Not so much. All desk file systems have 5 slots.. and I need 6… for 6 subjects.  So frustrating.. and yes, such a first world problem I know. LOL.  

What a busy full-on weekend we had !!  With the boys at Cadet Camp, Jaz & I were able to go to the shops and have a nice girly time with some retail therapy followed by milkshakes and cake at Coffee Club.  Yesturday morning we went to the movies and saw ‘Mr Peabody & Sherman’.  Great movie !!!  After rushing back home for our lunch visitors, we then had to hang out for Terry to get home from camp, as I’m too chicken to use the BBQ myself after the last ‘incident’.  whoops.  

Our lunch visitors were two or my most favourite families !!!  It was such a HUGE blessing to me to have these two women come into my life years ago.  They are like minded Godly women that speak into my life often.  They help me along my walk with The Lord when I have blisters and can hardly walk….  they encourage me when I’m unsure of something… and basically, I just know they’re always THERE !! Blessed much peeps !!  Love you two Alison & Janelle !! 

My full weekend was topped off with a GC board meeting with 5 of my fav people.  No matter how tired you are… it’s fun being with these great people.  It’s always a huge blessing to be surrounded by like minded people who have a heart for being bright lights in the darkness for our GEMS & Cadets.  We have our national leaders conference coming up in only 11wks, so that is exciting !!  It’s in Hobart, Tasmania too, so that makes it even more exciting.  I LOVE Tassie !!!  

My Dad is having his very much long awaited surgery t’row !!  It’s battery replacement for his brain stimulators.  So, the kids & I will gather all of our books up and head to hospital with Mum in the morning to most likely spend the morning, if not the day, there…..  to be there when he goes in, and also when he wakes up.  There would be nothing worse than heading in for an operation, or coming out of one, without a familiar face there.  

Visiting Poppy today was fun for the kids, as they got to go to the beachfront and have a swim.  Not so appealing to many.. but they thought it was fab.  Dad really has been blessed to be in such a beautiful place for his transition care.  Ocean (technically Bay) views out his HUGE windows, great size room, great atmosphere… plus my sister works there, so he had great visits with her on all work days.  

We have now found out he is first up on the afternoon surgery list, so we’ll head there late morning to see him before he goes in.  Hoping to get all schoolwork done before leaving, but if not…  Hospital schooling it’ll be for t’row.  :0)  Heading to bed now after yet another full on day..  Just got back from coffee with the girls after being at Physie with Jaz.  Gotta love Mondays !!  LOL  

Blessings Peeps !  xox
