Finally an update

It's been awhile. Quite awhile. I have been getting into a lot of trouble!!!!!
So many of you have been asking for a blog update, well don't fall off your chairs, I am finally getting around to it.

Life has gotten in the way, which is not a bad thing at all. In the last month .....................................

We celebrated Zac's 14th Birthday.

Jarred and Kloe have both started Milo cricket on Sunday. Jarred has also started Basketball on a Tuesday afternoon. None of the others have played basketball, so I am asking lots of questions and trying to get my head around how the game is played. He just loves it. Jarred and Kloe are both still swimming on a Thursday afternoon.

Zac is enjoying his cricket. He trains of a Thursday and plays Saturday mornings. He doesn't like having to get up early on a Saturday. Once he is up he is fine. They have been doing really well and have either won or drawn each match.

Kayla has officially finished her two years of Cadets. The end of year Mass and Parade was held recently and she was thrilled it was OVER!!!! Kayla and Jordi celebrated their 12 month anniversary. And have recently celebrated their 13th. Jordi celebrated his 18th Birthday and a few days later, got his P's. He has a flashy red car, that can be seen at our house everyday :)

We celebrated Melbourne Cup day with sparkling apple cider. The kids thought it was so cool.
Speaking of horse races. Kayla's horse, she has a part share in, has run in a few races recently. Coming 2nd, 4th and the last one he lost his shoe and finished 10th. Such a shame as he was looking so good. He is due to race again soon.
We had a truck of load of mulch delivered which I spread on some of the garden. Shame we need about 100 more loads to finish it all off.
We have planted heaps of things in the veggie garden.
We had 45 tonnes of crushed road delivered for the driveway. Zac and I spread as much as we could. We are still waiting on the bobcat man to come and level it all out.
We sold all but two of our baby chooks. We wanted to keep 2 for ourselves. We ended up only having 2 rooster out of the 9, which was really good. We had a lady ask us for 2 dozen fertilized eggs too!!! Two of our other chooks decided to get clucky and sit on some eggs, so we have another 3 new additions.
Our cows are getting so big and heavy and I feel so sorry for them. Our friend the 'cow' man said they will drop their babies within the next few weeks. We are keeping a close watch on them.
When we moved into this house almost 4 years ago, we used our coffee table to sit the TV on, until we bought a TV cabinet. Now you can't rush these things, we finally bought a TV cabinet and coffee table.

Last weekend Chris and I went to Sydney for my brother, Wade's wedding. It was a super quick visit. We arrived late Friday and we were back home Sunday dinner time. We had a great weekend. I will share some photos as soon as I get them from my Dad (DAD I know you are reading this - I need the photos ;)
During the week it was sports day for Jarred and Kloe. Jarred was counting down the sleeps and Kloe would rather, there wasn't a sports day at all. Jarred insisted on having red hair.It was a really hot day and the day finished up early. The red team won, so I had two very happy children.

I haven't done any creating at all, Zip, nil, zero. Hopefully I will get back into it. Maybe when I can find another few hours in each day :)
I'm sure there is a thousand other things but at the moment that will do.
Thanks for popping by.

WOW the kids are getting so grown up now, hope Zac had a wonderful birthday- can't believe he is 14 already, although K is 13 on Saturday....

Kloe and Jared look like they are loving cricket, looking forward to basketball pics.

Hope you arent too wet down that way.

Love the wedding pics too, what a beautiful day!
