Looking back on the year that was 2008

Filed under: week in review,year in review — by my3boysandi @ 7:58 am

Ive taken the first sentence of the first Weekly Review for  each month.   Ive also taken the first photo as sometimes they can jog a memory more easily. This may or may not relate to the sentence.   Read ahead to  see what ushered in each new month for me


Started the week off with an hour and 5 minute bike ride



Had a very quiet day resting my poor head.



“Today made an effect to go on a walk.” (LOL effect I think I mean effort)



Took My Home Schooler to the chemist and got some cream.



After taking Colin home we dropped my car off in town to get some new tires.



Home schooled felt a bit lazy in the afternoon but we ended up doing some good science stuff.



still not feeling 100%.



worked on our first lapbook



Our Little Man wanted his daddy to get into his car )



Went down to the bank with My Home Schooler he lost his wallet over the weekend so we had to get him a new bank card, then we went to shops I got a stapler he got a new wallet, then we dropped off the recycles.



Last Sunday we went along Marine Parade.



My oh my I foresee this week as being BUSY!!!

  4. As a former Bay girl, I’d just love to say thankyou for sharing your gorgeous photos of your children but for me the changes to NZ are incredible. I have searched hundreds of sites looking for photos of Napier and then I stumble across yours and it’s got Sea Scouts and the lagoon (with those whopping ugly houses behind) and the pool and the marine parade. Now I’m more homesick than ever!!!
    Have a great New Year xxx

  6. It’s neat to look back over the year, especially the photos that make it so special. We’re putting together a year in review slideshow for our church, so it brought back a lot of memories. Happy New Year!

    thanks 🙂 Happy New Years to you too 🙂
