footy season

yes, it's footy season, but with a difference this year...Jared has joined a footy team! yes, last Wednesday his friend Jamie came over and asked if Jared could go to practice with him - Jamie had only been to one practice with White Hills, and they needed more players in the 'under 10's'. The first game was on Sunday, so I had 2 days to register Jared with the league so he could play. Most of the kids had never played before, they were up against St Monica's, some of their players looked like they should have been in 'under 12's', and I think they had played before because they played really well as a team. White Hills lost the game, though I don't know what the final score was. Jared said his coach has told them they all played really well, and that that game was the toughest they would have to play (possibly because it was their first?) Any way, he really enjoyed himself, the day was pretty cold but the rain didn't last long. A game for under 10's is four 10 minute quarters with short breaks so all up it was a little over an hour.

In other news, Trinity has cut another 2 teeth, her top ones, so now she has 4 teeth...wow!!
And Carolynn has one of her costumes for the production "Cinderella", she is in the chorus. Mum heamed the dress up for us with the overlocker...thanks Nanny!


  1. just thought i would add that jared got his name in the addy - an under 10 encouragement award... yay jared :) today at training he got a pizza voucher

  2. Well done on getting an award, Jared! And that's so cool that you got your name in the paper too! :D Have you used your pizza voucher yet?

    And Carolynn, that's really cool that you're in Cinderella! :D

    It's great that the kids are doing a lot of extra activities, and great that there's so much on offer.

  3. Yeah, well done Jared. I hope you're enjoying the footy.. the lion practice will probably help you with your football training and vice versa too, which is good.

    Anyone else going to stay up to the wee small hours to watch the (English) football matches Australia is playing in the World Cup? Only another month or so to go :)

  4. I don't think I'll be staying up to watch the football... instead I'll be enjoying haviing the whole queensize bed to myself *cheeky grin*
