Busy times...

Wow, I have really been quite slack in updating here.  It just seems that time is going so fast and I can hardly believe we are in the middle of March already.  Even though most days it is still fairly warm, it is definitely cooler in the mornings and still dark when we wake up.  A reminder that winter is on its way...

Things here are busy.  Bianca is back in the swing of things at One Day School (although we are thinking that next term she'll skip this).  She was chosen as a school council representative and we are so proud of her.  7 and she has her first leadership position :-).  And then Bianca does gymnastics on Mondays and cheerleading on Saturdays (yes, proper cheerleading as you may have seen in movies)...


Caitlyn does ballet on a Saturday morning and from next week will do gymnastics with her daycare class.  She loves being in the "get ready for school" class and is showing an interest in learning to write her name and drawing lots and lots of faces.  Recently I had to take Caitlyn for her 4 year old immunisations (2 injections - 1 in each arm).  I explained to her what was going to happen, but I must be honest I dreaded it.  The first one was okay, the second pretty sore and she cried quite a bit.  It was at that point that it brought back a lot of memories of some of the things Bianca had to endure during her leukemia treatment.  But thankfully the tears stopped really quickly (because the promise of ice cream can make anything better).

Terence and I are working on an idea that hopefully will create some exciting opportunities for us.  Can't reveal much at this stage, but soon.  Really soon...

Its wonderful how "normal" your life is sounding in comparison to a few years ago!
