What Makes Me Happy 29/8/2011

After doing so well at his Schools Sports Carnival last week... we were off to the Districts Carnival on Thursday and Friday.
I just love this photo... it's of Jack straight after he won first place in the Triple Jump.
He not only won ... he broke the record!!!
He's pretty pleased with himself and I was grinning from ear to ear as well.
He also won first place in the 400m running and got a third place in the 200m.
Well done Jack... I'm so proud!!!!
We had a lovely family day yesterday and most of my family were there for the barbecue. My Mum is heading off next weekend and it was great to all get together and spend some quality time with each other before she goes. My brother even came up from Melbourne... Sooooo good to see him. This will be the last time the family will be together at my Nanna's house. It has been sold and the house will soon be removed. It is going to be a relocatable home and the land will have flats built on it. I'm so glad the new owners didn't demolish the house like they did to the one next door. This has been my Dads and my Uncles home since they were born. They grew up and lived in this house since 1945. It was a great idea to have the family lunch here and I love the photo of all the boys (My Dad's at the top of the stairs) at the front of their house.

Hope you all have a great day!
Happy Monday!!!

Well done Jack... lovely to have a family get together and what a fantastic thought that the house is going to be loved and used.... must have been quite sad in a way going out of the family? I know we all have to move on though... Happy travels to your mom....

Jack is a real trooper. Congrats to him on his wins. All the best to your Mum on her travelling. You will miss her. It was lovely to hear the story of your family home and see your photos, Teresa.

Well Done to Jack - his foot is probably still sore so even better result. Good news for the house - at least when you drive past in the future you will know the house has gone somewhere better.
