End Of Year Homeschooling Party

We went out last night, and got dressed up! Had a yummy meal at Rock Bar Grill and Cafe, and got to speak with other adults πŸ™‚

It was a blast to actually go out for dinner, have a night off from cooking, and to also see our boys so good looking, having fun with other homeschooling children. Do you know it was all boys dressed up last night, no girls!!! How funny is that πŸ˜‰

Sometimes Its Okay To Quit

Many of you know that I have been doing a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy through a college in Brisbane. And by rights I should have graduated in June of 2016 and its now October 2016 and I have been slowly going through all the extra 16 subjects the college gave me, longing on every day to see if they have been marked off and waiting!

I have been waiting so long to graduate.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial

With Geocaching we are seeing more of Bundaberg then we ever thought possible. From Places we drive past and don’t pay much attention to, and then to places we have been to before but didn’t really take much notice.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial is opposite Bundaberg Base Hospital, a place we have been to many times but really didn’t take the time out of our day to walk across to the park and see what was there.

And yeah we found the cache, it only took us two attempts, and many walking around in circles trying to work out where it was, before we thought outside the square and found it in the most usual place!

Bundaberg Lions Remembrance Park

I had time between appointments yesterday {was in town on Business} and thought I would try and find as many Geocaches as possible. Mind you I didn’t have my sweet boy with me so it wasn’t as much fun, and a few of the caches were set up for kids so I will have to go back with him another time!

There was one Cache that I was keen to find because it was at the Bundaberg Lions Remembrance ParkΒ

Hangi Fundraising For PNG

The other day there was a Fundraising event advertised on a Wide Bay Homeschooling Facebook page and I was thinking it sounded like a great way for our boys to experience more culture in their world, and I was keen cause I know how yummy the food would be from cooking it in the ground!

I asked how much the Hangi Fundraising For PNG was going to be for the evening, and it was only $5.00 per small plate and $10 per large plate – super good value for money considering how much food there was to try. The pumpkin – OH my gosh, I have never ever tasted Pumpkin like it, and I don’t think I will ever taste it that good ever again!

Geocache Finds In Bundaberg

We are addicted to Geocaching big time! Well Kyle and I are – David and Cameron don’t seem to have the patience for the search of the different type of caches, which is a shame cause its so much fun. And its a great way to see more of Australia.

We are driving down roads we wouldn’t know about, and seeing buildings we wouldn’t know were there!

Its a perfect way to see Australia, and to see the surrounding Bundaberg area. And there is a rush that I can’t explain with Geocache Finds in Bundaberg – some of the caches are so small you have to really think outside the box, others are large containers and Kyle loves finding those the most because there are so many trinkets inside to swap with!

The smaller ones are called “Nano” caches – they are so small you will be amazed they can fit any paper into them!

We have shared How We Geocache With our Boys, hope that gives the inspiration to get out there looking in your own area πŸ™‚

Take The Plunge Community Cafe

We are back meeting up with Homeschoolers in the Bundaberg area, and joining in with a meet up at Take The Plunge Community Cafe, where our boys play with their Edison Robotics, which I will have to try and see if I can explain how they work at a later date {I am still trying to get my head around the Edison Robotics!!}

I have never ever walked into a cafe where I felt like I was so awed by it! Walking through the doors of Take The Plunge Cafe, you will so feel it to.

Give a Cup of coffee to those who need it

LOVE THE WALL OF GIVING AS YOU WALK IN

These are tickets that you can take – if you need a cup of tea/coffee/meal and can’t afford it then these are waiting for you!

Leave you worries here

PLEASE LEAVE YOUR WORRIES HERE

I so need this tin!! Love it.

Great Kids Corner

The counter where you order your plunge tea

LOVE THE COUNTER WHERE YOU ORDER AND PAY

You can order your Plunge Tea/ Coffee/Milk Shakes or Drinks/Sandwiches or Biscuits. Then you can grab your own cup off the shelf – they even have a little “Booklet” on the tables that explains “what Cup you picked, means what your personality is” πŸ™‚

I love sayings on walls

Little Paintings

THESE GORGEOUS LITTLE PAINTINGS ARE IMPORTANT

When you place your order, they will give you these tiny gorgeous “Art Displays” to put on your tables – they are so the staff will know where you are and bring your food/drink orders to your table.

Chair and Coffee Tables

I SAT ON THE BIG LOUNGE CHAIR AND YES ITS SO COMFY

I love the Coffee Table – its a Huge Bellow with Wheels, both boys noticed how groovy it was {and what it was} when we sat down to design their Edison Robotics {a Homeschooling Mum gives them ideas on designs that they could draw and then work out how their Robotics could do the designs – last Week was a “Maize”}

I am in love with Take The Plunge Community Cafe, its a great meeting place!

Have You Been To Cafe Like This One?

Cheers

Bargara to The Lighthouse

On Australia Day I wanted to cross off a Bucket List adventure that I have been wanting to do for sometime. Its a long walk from Bargara to The Lighthouse – one website said it was a 90 minutes walk there and back! Well I am sorry but we took 2 hours to walk one way. And it was so very hot by the end of our walk but so very worth it. David dropped us off at Bargara and went to The Lighthouse carpark.

Then he started walking towards us – we actually meet up with him sooner then he expected and was shocked to see how much we had walked. After wards we thought that we could have easily walked there and back, if it wasn’t so very hot mind you.

Yeah we got burnt that day but gee we had so much fun.
