Book Week

This week was Book Week at school.  There were a lot of fun activities for the classes to do and each class made a beautiful banner about space to display in the school foyer, as the theme for this year was 'Read Across The Universe'. 

Harri and Kobe were very excited about the Book Week parade.  Harri had thought of what he wanted to dress up as weeks ago.  His class have been reading Roald Dahl books this year and he has loved reading them at night time when he goes to bed.   He decided to dress up as Willy Wonka. 

Kobe wanted to dress up as a pirate from Peter Pan which was easy.  I quickly had to think of a costume, when I realised that a lot of the teachers dress up too.    Luckily Kobe has a picture book called 'Jackson's Footy' and we of course have a lot of Hawthorn clothes, so my costume was easy to throw together.

When I got to school I got a lot of 'Go Mrs King!! That's my team!' and a couple of 'Hawthorn are losers!' (which actually isn't true at all this year :)  

I wish I could post pics of all the kids from school, as there were so many amazing costumes.  It was really fun and so cool to see most of the kids and teachers at school dressed up.  I feel very blessed to be able to work where my boys go to school, especially as it means I don't miss special days like this, but also get to take part with them. 


  1. I am so happy that you have a job that is so fun and enjoyable.
    It must be great to look toward to your days teaching at the school.
    I can imagine how proud Aaron would be of you, and happy to know that you are using your talents and skills.
    I know I am proud of you.
    Love Mum.

  2. Must be book week all over Australia .... the schools here in Adelaide were having book week either last week or this week. I'm loving seeing all the characters the kids are dressing up as.

  3. You all looked great in your costumes! Sounds like a fun time! :)


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
