first of all..... nothing is ever NORMAL in the sheppard-morris household.
Shanice and Connor went back to school yesterday, so there is some sense of normality back. The procrastination in the morning for getting dressed and then brushing their teeth. I truely do believe they just love to get me all worked up in the morning, lol.
Shanice is now in Year 4 and has a new teacher to school - she looks very nice. And Connor is in Year 2 and has Mrs Capel his junior choir teacher who he just loves, so i couldn't be happier.
About 30 minutes before the end of the day bell we get to go and visit there classrooms and see what they have done on the first day. Connor was very accomodating with this and let me help him colour, but Shanice was back to being "Little miss attitude cause i'm back at School" shanice!!!! So i didn't get any photos of her :(

It was such a hot and sticky day, we came home from school and the kids went swimming in the pool. Shanice came racing out of the pool and Indi tripped her up and went for a massive stack right on the garden edging and pavers leaving her with and massive graze (about 15cm long and 6 cm wide) on her hip and cuts up one wrist. Poor bugger!!! it looks nasty and sore, but were it is, i can't put anything over it only savlon cream.
soooooo.... here are a few piccies from yesterday.
I met up with Sheree today and Maevan for coffee and cake (yum chocolate crosants!!!) at Starbucks. Maevan had some really sad news to share with us too.
It was a great morning though and we spent about 2 hours there, it must be those really comfy chairs and great conversation!!! swe'll have to do it again REALLY SOON!
