ANZAC prayer

These guys …

… have done me proud once again. They came home from school today with their end-of-year reports. Straight A’s for them both, and lots of really positive comments. I thought I’d try and sum up the year, focusing on each of them separately. ~~~ TYLER Tyler has really grown and thrived this year, and now […]

See ya!

Well, we’re off here tomorrow: I’m obviously not one of those “serious” bloggers, as I don’t have posts written ahead of time and scheduled for publication while I’m away. You will just have to wait until I return … in 9 days’ time. Summer vacation, here I come!
