Tonight Newstead Heights School put on a welcome back BBQ. It's so nice living so close to school as we were able to just walk up there from home. They had lots of things out for the kids to use, and all the teachers and some aides were also there.
Last year the playground was redeveloped and now has this great big sandpit that is right in the the ground, so the kids can get to it easily.
Harri had a great time playing in it the whole night - he decided it was even better than getting a sausage and didn't eat the entire time!
It was nice to catch up with some of the families. Luca and Noah have known each other since they were babies as they went to Early Learning together. They are in the same group at school, but are only together one day per week this year.
One of Noah's friends - Jess, has a little sister - Eve. She was born a week earlier than Kobe, so it was nice to catch up with her family and see how she is going.
Everyone loved having a turn on the liberty swing. Some of the kids in wheelchairs love going really high and fast! It is so fun to watch them and how excited they get. Noah likes to go nice and slow, however!
I had a turn a long time ago and it made me feel really sick - it has a different feeling to a normal swing. Jay was dying for a turn, and loved it and would've stayed on all night if we let him. He now is begging to go back on the weekend.
Aaron (my skinny husband! He has lost something like 5 kg -wish it was me!) also had a turn and was carrying on, pretending it was making him feel sick. Really I think deep down he was scared, but was pretending not to be, by making jokes!
