School's out!

Of course it rained and was cold and windy on the last day of school, but it's a little warmer now, just in time for the mid summer celebrations. The girls have spent this week at home while I finished off at work. They have been really good, fixing their own breakfasts, washing up, shopping and cleaning while MOTH kept an eye on them. Now we can relax over the weekend. We are going to try and walk up to the boat and catch some fish for Mid Summer.

Too hot!

Last weekend, with the temperature in the low twenties, a bike ride down by the lake was enough to cool us down.

This Thursday with the temperature just over thirty we had to get into the lake to cool off. We have had temperatures of between 20-30 for over a week now. For the poor M.O.T.H. it is too hot. With his own temperature just over forty and another course of anti-biotics whose side-effects are probably worse than the infection itself , he's not feeling his best.
On the bright side, I have finished grading and Strawberry has finally had her birthday party. Her birthday is in March, so it was about time. Now we just have one week left of term and then one more week of planning and after that eight glorious weeks of freedom.

This is where we were for the bloody school trip, a beautiful spot,
but watch out for the natives they're easily irritated.
