Jessie had her first game of the new hockey season this morning, an 8.00am start meaning no Saturday sleep-in for Dad. It was also her first game in the Under 11's which meant her first game on the full field and with full regalia for goalkeepers. Up against the more experienced Gerringong team the Albion Park side fell 7-0, but Jess played in defence in the first half and probably managed to stop at least three goals with her great efforts. In the second half they had her playing in the halves, which she was less familiar with, but it was a good learning experience.
At 1.00pm we were all at Carmel & Co. Gymnastics Centre in Sunset Avenue, Warilla where we were having Madeleine's 7th birthday party. Helen had organised it, and it was all done very well. With every piece of gymnastics equipment imaginable, the two girls/ladies running the show organised a few activities to begin, before allowing 'free time', meaning the 14 kids could run around and use anything they wanted. It was 30+ degrees on the day, and warmer indoors, so they all ran themselves ragged. Helen had over-catered on the party food that came at the very end, but all in all in was a great party. Helen had outdone herself once again, and I think all of the kids had a great time.
