Proud as puff!!!

That would be Tim and I as last night we attended the awards night up at the Secondary College both Lance and Grace attend and it is by invitation only. Anyways Grace received 19 achievement and effort awards which is absolutely incredible. She is placed in the top acheivers of her year level (yr 8) and her and another student both recieved the same amount making them the top 2 students in that yr level. Not bad....not bad at all and of course I am so proud of her....who wouldn't be?!

Tonight was awards night at the Primary School where Stephanie and Maddison attend and Stephanie won 2 awards. Outstanding Achievement in Art for 2006 the best in the senior unit and also an Encouragement Award for always striving to do her best in everything she does etc etc presented by the Parents Club.
So yep great stuff and what smarty dudettes they are. I'm so proud of them both and well I just had to let you know.
Also Maddison has been nominated for a scholarship so we wait patiently on that one.

Well with Christmas so close I wont be blogging as much at all until the season is over and we are back from our holiday. Yes we are off for a few days from the 30th of Dec till the 8th of Jan. Heading to the beach down at Geelong and looking so forward to it. I have some altered projects I wish to post but just to get started here are a couple of things. I altered some Basic Grey To Go Boxes with a few extra bits and pieces from my paper scrapping stash.
