So I will be distracted with moving for the next few days but I am so excited to return to writing here real soon. In all the chaos I have been working on a few projects and I am excited to share. Have a happy weekend and I will catch up with you all soon.

I work at the local golf course and when we took the boys there last week the golf pro noticed that the kids didn't have their own kid size clubs. His kids are older now and he graciously brought their old clubs for my boys. We were all thrilled to bits and so grateful. As we weren't able to make it back out to the golf course the kids turned the front yard into their own driving range and what fun they had! They spent hours seeing how far they could each hit the plastic balls, trying to hit them into cups and around other obstacles.
The dads went for a mountain bike ride.....
The perfect Sunday combination: Betty and the morning sun!

I find myself this week, finding my feet, so to speak. We are in the process of preparing to move. In the process of dealing with banks, Realtors, tenants, landlords and a whole mix of paperwork, deadlines, hope and disappointment. Sometimes even the most carefully laid plans come, well, unstuck. The direction seemed so straight and clear but we have found we are on a short detour. Life is all in how we handle it right? So I am trying to enjoy the new view.
This past week Harrison started grade one at Glenmerry Elementary.
He has a lovely teacher, Mrs Partridge. He is also in a split class with 11 grade one students and 9 grade two students. He is enjoying himself and loves his new friends, "I just don't seem able to remember their names mum!"
Sam being the very big 3 year old he is had his first day of nursery school today. He will attend Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 12 - 2:30pm. A nice little break from mummy and some welcome noise and activity to help fill the void Harry left when he started school. Sam painted and crafted and played the afternoon away. I am so glad he likes it there.
I took a well deserved break on Sunday and headed to the Garlic Festival in New Denver with my dear friend Krista ( I know I am talking about New Denver again!!!) As you can imagine there was heaps of garlic to see. I didn't realise how many different varieties there are. It was pretty amazing. There were lots of colourful market stalls and it was lovely to walk around and take in the different sights and smells. I picked up some garlic of course, some garlic sauce that was originally developed as a cold tonic but doubles as a cooking sauce!! I found a cute shirt and a beautiful woven basket. I have wanted one of these baskets for a long, long time. I thought it was about time to treat myself. What about the shirt you say? Well clothing is a necessity you know!
On Friday we decided to catch up with some friends at the local golf course where I work. We thought we would introduce the kids to golf by playing on the putting green and driving range. It was a lovely evening finished off with a lovely dinner. The kids and adults a like had a great time. I highly recommend it to you to try with the little ones. I think next time though I will try to find some kids size clubs!
