The kids school had it’s annual athletics carnival yesterday. Because their school is so small (only 24 students) they join together with other small schools for the day. All the parents come along, and it is just a great day. I took a day of leave to join in. It was an early start, and a long drive to get there, but once we were there, it was straight into the march past, and then we were off and racing. Because it is such a small school, all the kids know and support each other, and all the parents look out for all the kids, not just their own. It is exactly the kind of community spirit we want our kids to grow up with. Even on the bad days, I know we are so lucky to live here!
* I wrote this on Thursday night, and forgot to post it yesterday. You will be pleased to know that the original tv remote turned up. It was sitting on the top of a window sash. Of course. No one can (or will) explain how it got there. Isn’t that always the case???
