Nan and Pop visit
Last week Mum and Dad came from Mulwala to visit, a rare occurrence in winter. I suspect (know) that it was to watch Henry at Auskick, Dad being an Aussie rules addict. Dad was a very talented footballer in his days and hopes the talent is passed on somewhere along the track. Henry was a very good pupil and listened intently to all Poppy's instructions. They had a game at Auskick which involves all the kids but probably less than half of the kids actually touch the ball (Henry being one of these). Henry is far more interested in dancing and attempting cartwheels than taking on the big kids. Luckily he has a ball doing this and is quite happy just to run for the hour.
They also finally got to watch Meaghan play tennis. Every time they have come previously it rained, this time was a close call, just freezing cold in the end.
All the kids get thoroughly spoilt by Nan and Pop when they come, although this time Henry's bed collapsed the day before they arrived so Meaghan had to give up her bed, fairly unamused. It all ended well though and Meaghan is getting a new bed tomorrow.
