It is all ours

well and the banks...lol

We settled on the land on Friday morning, so the LAND is now officially ours and if all goes to plan we have been told that we have been slated in to start building on September 14th...YAY!!!!

Well my little boy arrived home from Camp of Wednesday night, they were meant to arrive back to school at 5pm, but the buses arrived at closer to 6.30. It was pitch black and a mad dash as the parents were told to find your childs bag while the kids stayed on the bus. I had no idea which of the 3 buses Josh was on, so I thought it best to stand in the middle and watch, but that just happened to be the bus he was on.

He said he had a fantastic time at Soverign Hill and was so excited that it snowed while he was there. They all got dressed up in the old fashioned clothes to go to school. They did the mine tour, saw lollies being made, dipped and made a candle, watched a gold pour, did some leather work and heaps more. He even thought of his sister while he was away and bought her back a lollipop and whistle with some of the spending money we gave him. :)

Yesterday the kids had a birthday party at Bowling and then a couple of hours later John and I picked up one of my Best Friends and went back to their house to meet the kiddies again and have some birthday cake. All the kids get along fantastically, so we ended up staying for some pizza for dinner and left their house at 11.30pm...long day for the kids, they were so tired. They did have one bit of excitement as I got pulled over by a booze bus, they had never seen one before...of couse I knew I would be fine, as I don't drink at all if I know that I am the driver, by Josh and Teagan thought it was cool.

So today I washed heaps of clothes and started packing getting ready to leave the Melbourne cold. behind...can't wait.
