Siobhans first proper sleepover...

Lasted 3 nights! I had a call at work from Siobhan asking if she could go to the movies & have a sleepover that night. After a few calls back & forth it was agreed so her Dad handed over his last $ 20 and Jasmines Dad picked her up. The next day they were going to Parakai & since they were staying til closing her friends Dad suggested she stayed again so I popped in to drop off some money. Sunday morning she called while I was at yoga & when I phoned back she wanted to stay for a third night so eventually I agreed & it was all organised. Needless to say she was a tired wee thing on Monday but she had a ball.

For her first ever sleepover at a friends it was a pretty marathon effort.

School holidays have been good, having Easter in the middle is great because I got to have a few days off also, not that we ended up doing much. This week the kids are at Allstars, Samyson got his solo song in the final show plus the "seasons of love" from Rent that a group of them put together at the last minute. Siobhan didn't want to do a solo piece this time but is having a ball regardless (she prefers to be in the background sometimes). Off to the show tomorrow so am looking forward to it. They have a Saturday matinee & a Saturday night show as well

hair today Gone tomorrow

Today at approximately 2.15pm Samyson went from this:

To this:
It was part of a fund raising through the school for the Sweet Louise Foundation which supports women with secondary breast cancer.

He is a bit gobsmacked I think at the moment, it will take some getting used to, he had more hair when he was born. He raised a couple of hundred dollars. Gary & I were there to see it & even Siobhan came along.

There were about 15 of them altogether including 4 teachers (2 went as far as a number 1) and 4 girls all of who had quite long hair.
