12 days till Italy 

  
Only 12 days to go now till our much awaited holiday in Italy!!! It’s so close we can almost taste it!! Today we started going through what clothes we will need to take with us and tomorrow I am picking up the suitcases from my mums. 

There is still a few things we need to do, but the excitement is mounting and quite frankly, I can’t wait!!!! 
   
 

The Wiz

  

I’m feeling really proud tonight!! My beautiful princess appeared in her first high school musical tonight, and boy was it a fantastic show.

Madelyn was only one of four year seven girls to make it into the production which had a cast of 80, and after seeing the calibre of the performers tonight I can see why!!

After almost 8 months of constant rehearsals The Whiz finally opened to a sell out crowd!! 
All the girls were fantastic!! The singing was spectacular!! The whole production was so professionally put together that it didn’t feel like a high school play at all!! 

My baby was a star!! She appeared in three scenes and the closing scene and just lit up the stage!!

I couldn’t have been prouder!! 

That Sugar App

  
I discovered a cool little App called “That Sugar App” that tells you how many teaspoons of sugar there are in a particular food or snack or drink by simply scanning the barcode!!

This free App is a great way to monitor your daily sugar intake and very handy for pre packaged school snacks, it helps to take the guess work out of what to pack in your kids lunch boxes by disclosing just how much sugar content each item contains.

I did it!!! 

Well I did it!! I managed to get through a whole season as basketball coach!! My job is not quite finished our final game is on Saturday, but tonight was the final training session, and we had a fun filled hour and a half!!
Looking back I have to say that the season did not come without its share of challenges, but the positives have out weighed any negatives by far!!

I know that I will look back on my time as coach fondly and will treasure the memories that I have shared with my son and his friends. 
There is a certain amount of pride and sense of self accomplishment that I can’t help feeling, that I’m sure will stay with me for a long while.
