Update All!

Here is our current update.

Jo
Happily back to blonde.
Finished her Photoshop course and still none the wiser.
Joined the YMCA gym and have a weights plan in action. Terrified. But loving that treadmill.
Enjoying a musical reawakening thanks to Jacquie.
Not enough playing with dolls and not enough photo taking but working on it. Will make some time this weekend.
Loving being with the girls and running them around here and there and all the assorted cuddles conversations and dramas. Looking forward to some husband time soon too!
Working on health and wellbeing. Getting there. Slowly.
Waiting on dream dolly all the way from Finland.

Asha

Started gymnastics and is in roley poley heaven. All that practice on the monkey bars has paid off.
Still doing ballet and improving each week. Mumma has learned the art of the perfect bun. Yay!
Kicking serious backsides at swimming and moving up to the pre-school advanced class next term.
Creating beautiful things at Bear Park and enjoying her friends Grace, Terri-Jane, Emma, Jai Lin, Paddy, Rowan, etc. and working on getting the trophy again doing ball skills with Coach Adam, art with Miriam, new Brazillian teacher Alex and his puppets.
Still the queen of princesses mermaids dolls drawing dancing butterflies and sparkles.
Can make things out of nothing, very clever with drawing, painting, constructing things, she is very artistic.
Turns five in 14 weeks, and starts school in 15 weeks ... !!!
Loving: Creative dress up combinations. Ariel hair. Monkey bars. Gymnastics. Swimming. Playing with Rowan. Being helpful, gentle and kind.

Lulu

Doing what a two year old does best, yelling, demanding, attitude all the way, but cute in overdrive. Oh dear, that child has charm on tap. Scary stuff.
No fear .. baby gym lover climbing, bouncing, twisting, turning, booked in again next term and ready to go!
Another water baby here, she's the champion of her swimming class and will be an early starter in pre-school real beginner class where I predict she will also be ahead of her game. Proud parents Matt and I!
Loving: Gromit, trains, Charlie and Lola, dancing, Asha's bike, rollovers, singing, screaming, books, climbing and being troublesome.

Matt
Work work work work work work work.
Work.
Work work work work work.
Thinks about his ocean kayak and surf board and fishing rods a lot. Probably wonders about how many layers of dust there are on each item. I'm guessing 2,836.
Plays with the kids a lot between working, loving lots of park time and bike time and flying fox time.
Looking forward to our Noosa holiday (as we all are). Hopefully will be able to wash all the dust off his beloved water/fish catching toys then. And relax.

hey there lovely, hooray for the update! Asha and Lulu are beautiful little treasures. Amazing how different siblings can be isn't it? I'm always amazed by that and how the same genes can turn out such remarkably different but still perfectly fabulous little people.

Glad to hear you're refocusing on you. Take care of yourself.

Very excited to be seeing you when you're over.

peace and love, kath xxxx

I'm *so* excited Kath to see you and the kids and maybe even Mark (still crossing fingers).

I edited Asha's post as I forgot to put that she's starting school in only 15 weeks!! How exciting!

Ohhh is Asha excited about school? Where have you decided on to send her? Love both pics of the girls :-) But we need one of you too!

Hope you're enjoying the gym. I haven't been in over a week but been away with work and too busy to even think about looking after myself. Will go tomorrow though.

When are you going to Noosa? Hope you have a wonderful time!

Hi Trace :)
Yeah she is, I'm more excited than her, the uniform! 5 days a week, hooray! No more daycare fees!! And knowing that she will be learning so much I know she's in sponge mode at the moment so she'll love it. She'll be going to a local primary called Victoria Avenue School. It's very highly regarded and sounds great.
NO photos of me! just don't have any really. best that way ;-)
I've not been at the gym this week (been sick) but finally went today and did 5.6k on the treadmill, just walking. Lovely! Hope that your knee is better? Have you seen someone?
Noosa is on the 15th of July until the 28th. HEAVEN awaits! And kath is coming to stay for a few nights with the kids, yay!
Trace Thailand is getting closer, you must be so excited. I'm envious!

Jo I'm so happy to read your update, you sound so much more relaxed then you have been lately. Life seems busy but moving along nicely for you all, I'm really glad your blonde again, have joined the gym and your focusing on yourself, you deserve to be 100% happy and 100% focused on your well being.

The girls are gorgeous as ever, I wish we were closer and I could get a cuddle their growing up so fast, I can't believe Lulu can hold onto those monkey bars so well, what a devil.

How exciting about Asha starting school, that will be so good for her and you. Make sure you post pictures of her in the unform when she starts.

Enjpy Noosa, I bet your counting down the days.
