Copy time :(

The end of the 3rd term is approaching fast, which means tests and assignments for the students and marking for the teachers. I finished few days ago my 1st lot of 110 copies. I should have a quiet week end before starting again (150 copies) in a couple of days.

Our furry visitor wasn’t much help but a nice distraction.


Ca croustille et ca fait des miettes

Depuis un mois un second boulanger s’est installe a la marina et au grand Bonheur de tous, il est francais et fait du pain francais. Nous avons donc servi de cobayes avant l'ouverture de la boulangerie, a gouter baguettes crouistillantes mais tendre a l'interieur, pain au levain et bons croissants feuilletes qui se laissent "eplucher" doucement. ne manque plus que du bon fromage!


Camp a Canberra

La tradition australienne veut que les enfants en derniere annee d’ecole primaire aillent visiter la capitale du pays. Apres Victor et Felix, c’etait donc au tour de Clea de partir en camp a Canberra pour 4 jours. Les visites sont toujours tres educatives et citoyennes: Parlement australien, visites du muse des Sciences (Questacon), du muse de la guerre, muse national etc.

Clea est revenue bien sur epuisee (et malade), mais enchantee, non seulement par le camp en soi mais ausssi par toutes ses propres decouvertes.


Our new official drone pilot 

During Science Week I had the opportunity to take Clea to fly a drone. There was an obstacle course that we had to fly around. She was really impressive ad succeeded at her 1st attempts. I needed more trials but we had fun … She has now her drone pilot certificate, and we just need a drone!


Queensland Boulder Festival 2017

Clea and Victor were really keen to compete again as their last competition was in May.  The annual Boulder Festival is always a fun way to track your progress. There were plenty challenging climbs and they both really improve compared to last year. Clea finished 1st and Victor 6th.

(Victor didn't want us to encourage him to much so we stayed discret and didn't take too many photos)
