Friday we drove the 6 hours (more or less) down to Mackay for the North Australian Titles. It's the first year the little guy is old enough to compete and he's been looking forward to it for the last 2 years at least...

Saturday saw us awake at 5.30 and down at the beach by 6.45 and the LG did well in his first two events; making the finals in both (finals Sunday). Unfortunately there was then a sighting of a crocodile in the area and all the water events were stopped. The LG's other beach event was moved up and he made the final again and got a sixth place. In total we were on the beach for twelve hours!!!!!!

Today, although the decision was made for the water events to go on, most (me among them) didn't allow their children back in the water so it was another 6 hours drive home again.

So we are both very tired tonight and not at all excited that tomorrow is back to school and work again...

Holy crap! I hope he appreciates all you do for him, I don't know if I'd have the strength to do all that driving and whatnot!

Congrats to your little guy! :)
First time competitor and already finalist, that's great!
How are you? I would love to hear from you, but I hardly get on lj anymore. I can't really go there at work (since we get monitored, even if it isn't explicitly forbidden), and in the evening, my bf mostly raises his eyebrows whenever I get on lj. He's right, and I told him to do so because I need to study, but I miss lj and especially you guys.
