Unfortunately we have to get back to reality and although we are all enjoying being back at school, life is very hectic again. It's so hectic that I have been forgetting about my blog, and even think that maybe it's time to start letting it go, but while I still have things that I want to remember, I'll keep posting although it may be a lot less than I have been.
We are still enjoying beautiful weather, even though we are now into the beginning of autumn, and hope that the warm weather hangs around just a little bit longer. During the first couple of weeks after school went back, we would hang out for school to finish, so we could meet my cousin Tim and his wife Helene and their kids for a swim after school. I'm so glad that they don't mind me being the third wheel, because it's nice to be able to have some adult company while the boys are busy playing with their cousins.
We started swimming at the river at Corra Linn as there was so much rain at the end of the holidays, and our favourite swimming spot - the Gorge was flooded. I love it at Corra Linn though as it reminds me of Nan and Pop's river, where we spent so much time when we were growing up.
The boys loved going down the rapids on their boogie boards.
The Gorge pool was out of action for a couple of weeks because of the floods, and we were so happy when it was refilled.
The first few days they had a sign up saying it was closed (to get the levels of chlorine etc right) but there were heaps of people still swimming in it, and we decided it was worth the risk :)
Afterwards we went for a night time walk and ride on the scooters. I love daylight savings, and am dreading when it finishes in a few weeks.
