July Wrap-Up

We started off the month with school holidays. The kids did a tennis clinic. We went into the National Gallery for a showing of the Big Girl's painting she did for a special schools program they run each year. The kids and I went into the Queen Victoria Market with dad. The Boy started OT which will hopefully help him at school. The Big Girl went away with a friend for 2 nights to celebrate her friend's birthday. The house now has plaster and is coming along nicely. Hubby went to China for work and turned 40 while he was there. We all went to Mt Hotham for a long weekend.

Looking forward, in August, the Little Girl has orthodontic appointments, she is sitting her preliminary piano exam and we have a mother/daughter lunch for her year level. Hubby is going to China for 10days. We are a few birthdays in his extended family and The Boy presents his poster at the Science Talent Search. I start back at uni for the semester and we need to get a new passport for the Big Girl.
