Purple Patch

Miss i has been working hard all year as part of a four person team in the Future Problem Solving competition, offered as an academic extension program at her school. Her school actually entered two teams this year and they completed the three hour paper about four weeks ago.

At 2pm today I received a phonecall from her Principal to announce that BOTH teams made the Finals (top 10% in Australia) and will be competing in Melbourne in October. Miss i was home with a cold and screamed with excitement at the news. She works so hard with all of her extra workload and we are so pleased for her to have achieved this. Well done gorgeous.

This topped off a fantastic 24 hours in our house, as homme received news yesterday that he has had a book accepted for publication! It is a work-related book and it looks like it will be published for several countries, including China. I hope the process encourages him to submit one of his three novels to be published soon too. Although he says the thought of that is terrifying as it is so much more personal. I believe in you!

Also, miss e joined 800 students on the steps of the Perth Concert Hall yesterday to participate in a synchronised singing performance  around Australia. The performance was streamed live on the web and can now be seen on www.musiccountusin.org.au She had so much fun!

And I went to bookclub with my book unread – letting the team down haha
