Our Dancer :)

I do need to do a catchup blog too, but I left it too long (busy with SO many things) so it'll take me a few days to get it organised

In the meantime - Genevieve's first dance concert :) :)

We took her friend Alannah to practice with us (her Mom helped me by taking Genna few days before for another practice!). They had SO much fun! The practice was at 9 am and had their hair braided after the practice sessions for ballet & jazz!

Back at home we spent the day relaxing!
Then Helen did a beautiful job on Genna's makeup and she got dressed & ready to go!



She was SO confident in the show!! Looked to the side a LOT (just like the rest of them:) to glance at the instructors as to what to do next. But then she'd look at the audience and was just SO great!

I burst into tears when she came on - just SO grown up - so gorgeous






during the intermission - changed into her jazz costume!
We didn't get any good pics of the jazz dance because they were moving so much!! But we bought the dvd!! The jazz dance was SOOOO cute :) We were super duper proud of her!!

We decided to go to the reptile park one day - they had massive bats too!
Max loved all the wallabies


this one had a joey in her pouch

hard to tell from the pics but we saw legs and a tail hanging out of the pouch :)

I'm going to chase you ahhhhh!
They had a picnic area in this section and I saw one lady bat a big wallaby in the head after he kept coming up and stealing food from their picnic table ha ha!

They have SUCH an awesome playground too!



dinosaurs too - raaaaaah!

sometimes a bit scary!


we were happy we got there in time to see Elvis the crocodile get his feeding as well - he's massive!

chino with Grandpa after dropping Genna at school :)
we had a fun day out in the Blue Mountains with Grandpa. Fun to go out in our truck 'The Fox' !!


and an update on Max

his favorite sayings at the moment:
'My Come?' when we stop anywhere in the car - even though he always comes with me ha ha
'My Chocolate!!!" when waiting for a baby chino
I'm VERY proud that he says 'Yes Please' and 'No TankU' many times a day :)
and after Grandpa left & Dadda went away for work, we decided we needed to cheer up - so what did we get? Baby chinos of course :) lol I see a theme here..... but it's a nice outing for us!


cute sleepy man


and last weekend at her friend Izzy's painting party


Genna's class hosting the weekly 'assembly.' They give out awards, and the hosting class sings a few sogs etc

It's a bg deal for kindergarten kids to host, because everyone in the class is assigned a line to say

her whole class :) practicing before the rest of kindy, year 1 & 2 come in


singing the Australian national anthem

everyone's here!


The school motto - gosh she's had a good first year of school. SUCH a great school :)


Genna's line! She said 'Mr H can you please dismiss the assembly'
She practiced all week and was SO proud of herself for speaking clearly in front of such a big crowd!!
