Almost Summer

Well Summer is almost here, and finally it feels like beach weather.
Sarah McNamara hasn't been to the beach since she got to Melbourne, so today we went exploring at Williamstown beach. Macsie and Sarah came along too for a yummy picnic.
We had so much fun digging and building sandcastles, looking for water snails, chasing seagulls and splashing in the water.
Summer is fun, I hope we can go to the beach again really soon.

Do you know what transition means? I do!

tran·si·tion Passage from one form, state, style, or place to another.

I am learning all about transition because I am in transition, I am going to finish kinder soon and go to school next year.

I went to another transition day at Kensington Primary School today. This time mum and dad took me there. They talked to other mums and dads, as well as some teachers and even the principal. I was really excited that mum and dad were there, they got to meet my 'buddy' Alex.

Alex and I had so much fun learning together. After I went to a music class and did some more artwork, I went to order my school uniform. My uniform should arrive next week, so I will post some photos of how cool I look in my new uniform.

Practice Makes Perfect

Adults keep telling me that 'practice makes perfect', well with all the dancing I have done lately - I will be the best dancer in the world!

Today we had a full rehearsal at the studio, so I had to practice my jazz and tap ready for the end of year production. Tomorrow I will go to my normal jazz class, then on Friday I will go to the other kids jazz class so they can practice with me. Then that afternoon I will go back to the studio for my tap dancing class.

Finally on Sunday we will go back to the studio for a photo shoot with everyone in costume. Then it will be less than a week until the big production. I can't wait.

Should I practice some more now?

We had a Thanksgiving party at our house tonight. I really don't know what a Thanksgiving is, but I know it was fun. Sarah told us that it was a special American holiday where people celebrate with family and friends and think about all the things that make them happy.

Well I think Thanksgiving is a great holiday. I can think of lots of things today that made me happy, that I can say 'thank you' about;
- meeting Sarah and learning all about Thanksgiving
- having lots of people come to our Thanksgiving party
- eating strange foods (Although the grown-ups loved it, pumpkin isn't a dessert!)
- having a big bath with lots of friends
- eating ice cream
- staying up late!

Thanksgiving sure is a great day. Can we have another Thanksgiving party tomorrow?
Love AJ Pickle

PS - did you know that American people think that pumpkin comes in a can? Sarah had to cook her own pumpkin before she could make the pumpkin pie!

Two Weddings and a Christening!

We have been soooooo busy lately.

Last weekend we went to Yarrawonga so mum and dad could go to Kerry's wedding.

Wedding 1 - Kerry and Brian

This weekend Aunty Sharni looked after us so mum and dad could go to Kirsty's wedding.

Wedding 2 - Kirsty and Brian

Why are weddings just for grown-ups? They look like so much fun, hopefully we can go to a wedding one day!

Finally yesterday there was something that we could all go to, even us kids; we went all the way to Sunbury to see cousin Henry get christened.

and a Christening

Just a normal weekend for us it seems, always busy. Places to go and people to see.
Love AJ and Milla

Friends Everywhere

We made a new friend today. Her name is Sarah and she is having a holiday with us and Ellen. I don't know where Sarah comes from - she talks like people in America but she can read books to us in Japanese.

I don't mind where Sarah comes from, as long as she is our friend.

Alex and Alex

Instead of going to kinder today, I went to Primary Kensington School instead. I made a new friend and his name is Alex too. He is not a big kid, he is a really big kid. He already goes to my school and he is going to be my buddy next year when I go to school.

I can't wait, it will be heaps of fun when I am at school.

Here Comes the Bride

I went to Yarrawonga for the weekend, to stay with nanny and poppy when mum and dad went to Kerry's wedding.
My mama made Kerry the most beautiful dress in the world to wear. I think that she looked even more beautiful than a princess.

I wonder what I will wear when I marry Macsie?

The Explorers

Today, when Macsie came to visit, we decided to do some more exploring. Although it was finally a lovely sunny day, we didn't want to do outside exploring. Today was 'inside exploring day'.

There were so many places to explore upstairs...

We explored the beds - to discover how they were put together.

We explored the toys and blankets - to see how many we could tip into the middle of the room.

We even explored the bathroom - just for fun!

Today was a day to learn about everything in our room. It was very educational, it is amazing what you can learn in only an hour!

What is a Nation?

We are having lots of strange days lately, and today was one of them. It was Tuesday, so mum went to work really early, before we woke up. Now normally on a Tuesday I would go to Tia's house and AJ would go to kinder. For some reason we didn't go to Tia's, we stayed home with dad.

I love going to Tia's, but I didn't mind staying home. We ended up visiting friends who live on the other side of the park and had some yummy lunch. Even when lunch was over, Michael's mum and dad wanted us to stay to watch 'the race that stopped a nation'. I don't know what they really meant though. There were horses on tv, and lots of people dressed up as princesses like me, but I don't know how that would stop a nation...I don't even know what a nation is!

We had such a great time playing at Michael's house, that we were still there when mum finished work. We were so busy playing that we stayed there for dinner too. Actually, we were so busy that I didn't even find out what a nation is.

Maybe a nation is something that makes dad's and brother's fall asleep really easily?
Maybe the race that stops a nation really did make AJ and dad stop?

I really don't know, I will have to go and ask mum.

Fast Food

Yesterday, Milla and I made our own snacks. Although it was the middle of the afternoon, we wanted to have some more breakfast. Milla had her rice bubbles and cornflakes with apple and blackcurrant juice.

It looked delicious, so I decided to have rice bubbles and cornflakes with apple and blackcurrant juice too. I really wanted to have fast food, so I ate my cereal from my frisbee!

Today we went for a big adventure with my friend Michael and his brother Matthew and our dads.

We all went for a big ride to the lake near our house. It isn't a very big lake like the one near nanny and poppy's house, but it is still lots of fun. We wanted to catch tadpoles, but we couldn't find any. Instead we caught water bugs.

(When dad downloads the photos from his phone, I will post one here!)

Michael and I thought that water bugs would make lovely pets, but the dads wouldn't let us take them home with us. I guess we will have to be happy with the snails we have hidden in a box to keep as pets instead!
