Last night we went to Noah's end of year BBQ at Newstead Heights. It's always a nice night to catch up with the other families from the school. This year was extra special as they had the official opening of the beautiful new water feature that has recently been installed in the playground, and were also saying goodbye to Jeremy who was leaving the school.
The couple who donated a lot of money for the water feature were there, and were presented with a gift from the school. I knew the ladies face from somewhere and she came up and said hi and told me she used to go to the gym at theogenes and last time she saw me I was pregnant with Kobe. The kids loved playing in the water and the guy said that he had thanks enough just seeing the kids reactions as they watched and played with the water.
The reason they donated money to the school was that years ago the man's brother attended the school. He also said it was 'just the start' and wants to do more to help the school out which is lovely.
Kobe copied all the big kids who were putting stones on top of the water spouts and making the water spray out everywhere.
He was having the best time getting sprayed by the water.
The boys had fun playing with the other kids who had come along.
They also thought it was fun to have a turn on the liberty swing.
Noah went to early learning with Luca since he was a newborn. It's nice that they are still in the same class at school together for part of the week. Luca is always happy and smiling and just loves life.
It was lovely to be able to catch up with some of the families. We talked to a couple of families about getting together a bit more over the holidays at the school, so the kids can see each other and use the liberty swing at the same time.
We decided it was time to head home when Kobe came over absolutely drenched from playing in the water feature, and Harri was absolutely covered in sand. Lucky we were only a 2 minute walk from home!
