Holiday activities

We decided we should do something over the weekend that was a real “family activity”, so we went out to Penrith to visit the Museum of Fire. A good day was had by all… I didn’t think it would be much of anything, but there was some good stuff, and Will and Alex had a ...

Good day

Family barbecue… we head to my parent’s place for a barbie, probably one of the last we’ll manage for the warmer season. It’s always a good day for the kids, where they get to run around a lot and generally have a good time. Or in Will’s case, demand to watch movies on a whole ...

Trying…

As in difficult. It’s all good really, but sometimes small children can just drive you nuts. Alex is getting really frustrated with not being able to communicate with us properly… we want to try some more sign language just to help him out with that. And Alex seems to have killed my mobile phone, unbelievably ...

Kung Fu Panda Karate

Will went to his first karate lesson today, at a local class at a nearby high school. We had someone over a week ago advertising them, and after some thought we decided it might be a good  idea for him to get involved. Some fun activity, help his coordination and concentration, and so on. So ...

Boxing Day

There’s a lot of stories about what Boxing Day is supposed to be, but in my time it’s just a day of rest — relaxation, fun, family time. We’re at Nelson Bay now, and today we started really early. Will and Alex both act a little wacky at first; probably something about the different routine ...

It’s Christmas Day, in a way

We’re having Christmas early this year, or at least Christmas 1. That’s why we’re here, and it was quite the thing to have a big Christmas lunch with family, and present giving with five little kids. Will got a cool Cars laptop thing that I would have got him next month otherwise — he’s playing ...

The weekend… really?

When your weekdays look a lot like your weekends, it’s hard to do a lot really. And I’ve been going out of my way to not do anything in the state I’m in. It was nice today, for a few hours in the middle at least, and we take advantage of that in the Turner ...

Small boys can finally jump

Had lunch at the parents today … a family affair, we’ve done it many times before. No Wests game to watch actually made it easier, of course 🙂 But it was just so much fun! Not that it isn’t a good time of course, but Will and Alex just enjoyed themselves so much. Alex gets ...

Happily easily pleased

Will is really taken with Cars at the moment — the most recent Pixar movie we own. He particularly likes the very end credits, where the injokes go as far as having Car versions of all the Pixar movies, with many jokes about voices and so on. It’s funny stuff, and I like that he ...

A funny thing happened

When I started playing a bit of the recent Simpsons game on Wii tonight (that we were finally able to pickup last week), I didn’t think I’d be at it for long. It seems like a mostly great game so far, with just a few niggling annoying aspects. Then I really got into it, then ...
