Can I whack it???

The boys found a little praying mantis in the back yard today. Thomas quickly found his toy golf club to poke it with and, from his medical kit, a pair of surgical tweezers to use for inspecting it. Thomas was being very gentle looking at it and wanted to feed it a leaf.

Lachlan, on the other hand, was quite the opposite. He came up with his little cricket bat and asked,

Soccer Presentation – 2008

Thomas had his 2008 soccer presentation on today. It was meant to be after his last game of the year, but it was raining so was cancelled. So instead we went to McDonalds for the presentation.

The Circus comes to town

The circus has been in town, and we took the kids along tonight.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take photos inside the tent, but I think we saw all the usual things – performing lions, ponies, monkeys, clowns, trapeze artists and a slapstick routine.

We had ringside seats and, by coincidence, were sitting right next to one of Thomas’ pre-school friends, Clay. The kids thought it was amazing, with both really liking the lions and the clowns with their slapstick routine.
