The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

All Quiet on the Bandwagon Front

So, school holidays are nearly here, and I am looking forward to them! Today was the Battle for Australia ceremony at school, so I was there all day. We made sandwiches (10 loaves of bread!) and supplied cake, bikkies, tea, and coffee. We thought all was going well, then the big urn wasn't working so we swapped it for the small one, then it was leaking, and then we realised neither urn (ours or the hired one) were boiling, turned out the power point wasn't working so off I went to get extension cords... anyway, at the end of the day it was still successful, although we had planned on having 2 urns because last year it was hard with one, then because of the power we had to send everyone to use our little leaky one because it was the hottest :P

Trinity's Baptism... no date yet, Stephen is back tomorrow and will hopefully get back to us.

Jared went to the Jockey Club with the lion team for a performance. He got to be the clown/monk/teaser, which is what he preferred to being in the lion. I was told he'd never had a bigger smile on his face! I couldn't go this time, so a couple of the other parents kept an eye on him :) The "little" boys stuck together, I was told wherever one was they all were - 5 of them in total, 2 lions and the monk :) The next performance is "moon festival" which is the 8th of October, so I better check the time... might not have Trinity's Baptism that weekend.

Carolynn has a calisthenics comp this Friday night in Melbourne... will get her to post results on the weekend... if she is allowed on the computer. Technically she is banned until she cleans up her room!

Finally, Adam has been working on the BendigoGuide so go and have a look -http://www.bendigoguide.com.au/


  1. What is the 'Battle for Australia ceremony'? And what fillings do you put into so many sandwiches?! Glad it all worked out in the end :)

    Jared, sounds like you had a good time! I hope you have a great time at the Moon Festival too!

    Carolynn, I'm looking forward to reading your calisthenics update and Adam, it looks like you've been busy too!

    Damien and I have been working, and then going to the gym or jogging down our street. Apart from that we've been doing a bit of a tidy-up around the house before Nanny and Poppy arrive this Thursday. We're looking forward to their stay! :)

  2. Also I've been to a couple of soccer games.. Adelaide United, we won 5-1 on a freezing rainy night and 3-0 on the greatest warm Spring evening. It was fantastic to watch! Jared have you decided what sport to play next? If you play soccer, i know some great chants ;)
