Happy holidays kids and be safe!

I hope you have some fun things planned for your holidays.

Don't forget that this is the last week for the colouring competition with Brick and Tootz so get your entries in quickly.

I want to give a special thankyou to Cooper for his fabulous picture of Poppy asleep on the haystack. I can see that Cooper has put in a lot of effort to create his picture. Thankyou Cooper!

Not long to the holidays

Here are a few more terrific pictures from more terrific kids. Thankyou John, Eveline and Chantal - I love your pictures!

It's not long now to the school holidays. I wonder if you have anything planned yet?
I am hoping to spend some time with my family and catch up on some gardening and spring cleaning!

If you're doing something special I'd love to know about it...

Art Competition Entries

A wild and windy night

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I have been in touch as I have been busy teaching in a lovely little country school as well as doing some presentations of Poppy and the Bushfire.

I wonder whether you had as wild and windy a night as we had on Saturday? Poor Brick's kennel was blown half way down the paddock (he looked very confused and bewildered when we went to check on him at 4:00am!) As well as that lots of trees were blown down including 2 great big ones that fell on fences and broke them so Poppy had a big clean up day yesterday!

I'm sure you will enjoy seeing a sample of some of the beautiful entries we received at Poppybooks for the previous competition.

Don't forget to send in your entries for the latest colouring competition - Kieron's picture of Brick and Tootz having a rest.
