Pete and Charlie built a billy cart together.
This year Alice couldn’t decide between Wild Style and Black Widow, but Charlie quickly settled on Star Lord from the new Marvel movie.
As with previous years we met up with several other families and the children made crafts relating to each book that was read.
The older girls also did some wood whittling .
Alice and Charlie are planning to produce a series of photos using one of their guinea pigs.
Yesterday we went with our home school group to visit the Nicholson and Macleay musems .
These museums are run and maintained by Sydney University. They are small and free, although we paid a small fee for a guided tour. The tour included access to the relics room, where the children were allowed to handle items . The age of these relics was between 2000 and 5000 years old.
The Macleay museum is mainly natural history, although it does have some other science items. This museum is currently housed in an attic room, but there are plans to combine both museums in a larger building.
Of course, no excursion would be complete without a trip to a park. Victoria Park was perfect.
Today we took a boat trip out to Green Island . We all enjoyed a ride on the glass bottom boat before Pete took our niece and the kids snorkelling, whilst I relaxed and read my book and went for a massge .
Heading to the reef .
Some of the coral, it’s pretty difficult to get good shots .
Alice did see Nemo, but he wasn’t posing for photos .
We are having a short break in Cairns this week.
Today we visited Hartley Crocodile Adventures. We started our visit with a boat trip on the lagoon . Once the food appeared , it wasn’t long before there were several very large crocodiles swimming around the boat .
Next we watched the Extreme Crocodile show, starring a huge, angry crocodile and some crazy guys getting very close to him.
Tomorrow we are off to the Great Barrier Reef .
