Last weekend of the holidays

I've been a bit absent of late, blogland has taken a back seat to my other life (family + uni)!
I do love the hols, but when you have 4 kids you have to play the role of Mrs Even ALL THE TIME. If one has a play date, a party, or a friend over, the others want it in equal portions. It does my head in. So this past weekend, the last weekend of the Easter hols before freedom  school started again, was a stay-at-home weekend. I had assignments coming out my ears and 4 bored beans to entertain, but by hook or by crook we weren't going anywhere. When push came to shove, we put our boots on and went as far as the creek down the back.


(Bear looking a bit "special in his PJ's , keeping an eye on the dog in the creek and trying to smile for the camera at the same time)
 The boys made a "wall of fame", even I got a gernsy.


We found this lonesome cray making his way down the creek. He hissed at the dog and made for some nervous excitement. 



Boredom abated for a spot …

Sunday saw us entertain the newly engaged lovebirds and I met Ez's gorgeous parents and sister for the first time.


And that's it, back to lunch boxes and homework for another 8 weeks.
This term is short but massive. It's exam term for the big boys, and I have my first ever prac for 4 weeks.  So I may not be around much, but rest assured I'll still be reading my favourite blogs.
(I have one more stash of photos for an AUTUMN post already lined up for tomorrow, but after that we'll just have to see?!)

Just one other thing:
A wonderful man was canonised on Sunday in Rome, Pope John Paul II. I was lucky enough to be blessed by him as a 6 year old girl.


Much Love
Liv x

  1. They're a gorgeous bunch that lot of yours. Though that 'crawchie' probably would have been brought home to the pot by this crew.
    Enjoy your busy next few weeks ... you blessed thing.

  5. What a beautiful pic of you with JPII! I made Jacob scroll through so many of your posts yesterday evening because I enjoy them so. He also really likes your artwork - which is high praise because he was a sculpture minor and fancies himself pretty in-the-know about these kinds of things ;)

  6. Playing Mrs Even! YES! Drives me nuts, now that my two older ones are in high school I spend time trying to crow bar them off stupid Mine Craft games, but I still have to manage Miss M's social calender. I guess they will be off soon enough without me and I shouldn't complain - but ahhhh ugh!
