A week!

Geez, I haven't posted for a week!!! Been flat-chat at work getting ready for the dreaded "end of financial year" (30th June). We're also making a major switch in software, and are trying to get as much training as possible, before 30th June, so we can start the new financial year, on the new system... oh joy!

The weekend was busy. H-man got a very special invitation, to go out on the field at half-time, with some other Auskick kids, at the Adelaide vs Hawthorn football game - and made his "Aussie Rules Football Debut"... in front of 45,000 people!!! I tried to download the videos I made, but they're not downloading... will work on it! He was a little champion! A huge thanks, to his classmate, that invited him along - to the experience of a lifetime! We asked him, what it was like, being out there infront of all those people, he said "what people?"!!! We said, "all the people in the stands" - he said "oh them - yeah". Unfortunately, after an extremely close game, our team, Adelaide ("The Crows") lost by 4 points. :(

So my 3 word Sunday pic, is in honour of our little footballer -


If you didn't work it out - he's the one the yellow arrow is pointing to -in black, long black socks and shiny white boots!

Last Friday, was Grandparent's Day, at school. Miss M and my Grandma (Miss M's GREAT Grandma!) featured in the Newsletter! I'm going to ask for a copy of the photo, but for now, you'll have to be satisfied with a scan from the Newsletter!


I thought it was a really nice photo! They drew a vase of flowers, together! H-man and Mr T's Dad, also got a spot in the Newsletter -



And lastly... CONGRATULATIONS! To the Adelaide families who received the wonderful news of their precious new additions! Including, one little boy (that I know of!)! I'm really starting to think that we might be seeing blue!!! Like I've said before, we don't care if we receive a boy or a girl... we just want to receive!!! (ps. I'll be advertising my e.b.a.y id if we do see blue... as I'll have a wardrobe full of pink that'll be going cheap!!!)

The pics are wonderful. Looks like the adventure of a lifetiem for your son!!!

I am with you on the blue vs. pink thing...I just want our little bundle from China before I go crazy waiting. If we end up with a boy I will be joining you on e.b.a.y with lots of pink stuff..but I am hoping we still get a girl. If only they would hurry up and get thru the next 40 days of referrals for we can know for sure!!!

Y'all are quite famous round town! How exciting for H. So funny that he didn't notice the crowd. Referral time is grand.I've actually started looking at everyones sites showing their new babies. Cuties!

"flat-chat" is a riot - I'm totally using that term now :)

I'm with you - am fine with boy OR girl but really believed baby would be a girl until recently. We could all open up our own children's clothing shoppe if it is a boy referral!!!

Congrats to your little man for keeping his cool in front of 45k ppl!

Your family is too cool!! If you get a boy, you can send all the pink stuff our way!!

Atta go H-Man!
We had a family leave last week for their boy and what a cutie pie he is!
Hope your year end goes by without a hitch.

He played in front of 45000 people?!! Holy moly. I would have been a nervous wreck -- clearly the boy is a champ and destined for greatness. Big hugs -- I've been thinking about you this week and wishing we could just pop by for a visit.
