August was a big month for events and activities. Ruby had her first school sports day where she got to participate in all the usual events like long jump, high jump and running as well as some fun ones like egg and spoon races, sack races etc etc. It was a massive day and even though sports is not her forte she had an absolute ball.
My favourite photo from the entire day is the one where she is beaming after running the 100 meters and she was given a sticker that says “I ran a race” with a picture of a turtle on it. One of her class friends didn’t get a sticker [she came second and got a red ribbon] and Ruby felt sorry for her and gave her sticker away.
Ruby also had her first school excursion, a trip to Jacobs Well Environmental Center, which also included her very first trip on a bus. I was one of the lucky parents who got to go along and supervise/help [take lots of photos].
There were performances on assembly, modelling competitions, trips to the Royal Queensland Exhibition [The Ekka} and we also fitted in some strawberry picking and tutu making on the weekends.
