Yesterday's chilly morning brought our first frost for the year but soon gave way to a bright and sunny winter's day.
Our much anticipated annual Home Educators Athletics Carnival was off to a crisp start.
After running 1200m the twins sprinted home, each wanting to take out first place for the girls' senior division.
400m is a long way for little legs (and some bigger ones), older sisters happily coming to their rescue.
Rarely used skills were enjoyed.
For some everything was new and delightful (and a little overwhelming at times).
New friendships and much fun for young and old.
The three-legged race is always a fun challenge....
......which our twins have quite an advantage in.
Lots of good old-fashioned fun which always ends with a series of tug-of-wars.
With certificates for each participant and fond memories, next year's carnival is already a topic of conversation.
