Jacob had to go to Bond Uni this morning for more testing in regards to his Autism. I just want this to all be over with and for us to figure out what we can do for him to make his life easier. He seems to be doing better at school though. He has completed his first assignment on our family tree and he said it was a great feeling to get it finished. He then came home that same afternoon all grumpy as he now has a science project to do. High school is very trying when you are a person that sometimes just doesn't get it......As a mother it breaks your heart.
Emma is doing great. She has been shifted to the "ECHO" program which is for gifted and talented. Our children are so totally different. We have Jacob who struggles through everything that he does and then Emma who appears to have it all, intelligence, socially active, sporting etc etc. Go figure.
Stuart is working and studying hard as usual. He is half way through his Masters Degree so only two years left. What with Uni, work and being away for business meetings we rarely see him. Actually that is probably a bit of an overstatement as he is here most nights. LOL
I am just still at home doing not much at all. Just a housewife looking after my terrific family.
I was going to do some scrapping this week but time just got away from me. Socializing just seems to take so much of your time LOL LOL.
Anyway as I said before I really so not have a lot to share so I am outta here and will catch you on the flip side.

Jacob is going well, he is struggling a bit with the amount of homework but he will get there. Emma is doing well also, she has signed up with the school choir, band (she is playing the clarinet) and she has joined the speech and drama club. Hopefully we can convince her to get piano lessons too. She will be busy on Monday and Wednesday afternoons as of next week as physical culture begins for the year. Hopefully this year she will really put some effort into it. Not saying that she doesn't but I know her and know that she could do a lot better
We went out and celebrated our daughters 22nd birthday a couple of weeks ago and we managed to get a beautiful photo of the two of us so I just had to scrap it (see below).
Well I am going to go and make the most of my time while he is not here and scrap. e doesn't like it when I pull all my stuff out and mess up the kitchen table so it is kinda nice when I can do it and just leave it all out LOL. If he saw the mess that is out in the kitchen at the moment he would probably have a coronary.
Hope this finds you all happy and healthy
Love Leanne xxx

Australia Day saw us spending the day with old friends and having a ball. The weather was perfect which meant that most of the day was spent floating around the pool. It was just a perfect day, full of laughter, stories of happenings years ago, great food and above all great friends.
Just wanted to share a couple of layouts that I did for Kaisercraft also.
Well that is it for me. Take care and stay safe
