Fathers Day build up.

It is Fathers Day in Australia this weekend. The kids are excited. Homemade cards are coming home in school bags and being hidden in secret corners before Dad gets in from work. The Fathers day $5 stall was in school yesterday and I can't wait to see what the kids picked with their money.

This morning the school opened up at 6.30am for the teachers to set up bbq's for a sausage sizzle. At 7.30 the first of the cars pulled up with excited kids and Dads. We got there about 10 minutes later and the car park was almost full! There were tables set up where the teachers served sausages in slices of bread, fruit platters, juice, tea and coffee.

It was a fun morning and I can't believe that I am back home earlier than the time I would normally be bundling the kids into the car on the way to school! I'm off to get the house straightened up so we can have a relaxing Fathers day weekend!
