Queen For a Day

With this term being FULL to overflowing with Kings and Queens, I suggested to our Home Ed group that we have a day learning about the Queen! I wasn't actually at the planning meeting and soon found out that the other mum's loved my idea and thought it would be super cool to have the "queen" for an interview! ALong with the children dressing up and some fun royal related crafts. 

Well guess who they thought would make the perfect "queen"??? Yes that's right.... ME!!!
It was rather fun, though dressing up as the Queen pregnant, knowing that in real life she is actually 85 did feel rather strange!!! My sister helped me out heaps with the outfit, in fact every thing other than my shoes and blouse were hers, thanks Sarah!!
Alison asked me lots of interesting questions and some interactive ones involving the children too. Like what other countries are included in the Commonwealth? How should you greet the Queen? How many thrones does the Queen have?
Then at the end there was a question time for those children who wanted to know more!
Did you know that the Queen actually does more than ONE outing a day, every day of the year!!! I'm pleased to have just had the few hours!! he he

{Snow} much fun

The other weekend we took a wonderful afternoon out and went to the snow! I have to admit I thought we'd missed the boat and what little snow had fallen the weekend before would be surely melted away....
this was not the case! YAY!!! We had the best time and can't wait to get back up there again soon!
(For those of you who know Tassie at all we were on the top of Mount Barrow!)
