It's all about Zoe

During the last two months, the focus has been on Zoe as her final year at primary school has drawn to a close. She has had a lot of fun there, participating in lots of sports and musical activities. The final production was Movin' and Groovin' in which all of the Grade 6 students participated. It was an impressive display.

On Monday, December 14, the graduation ceremony took place. This involved a dinner of pizza for the students at the school, a presentation at the local church and then a disco. The students all got really dressed up and looked very grown-up!
Zoe had a great year with a wonderful teacher, Jacki. She is well prepared for high school, now.

On the last day of school, the Grade 6 students performed a farewell song and were presented with badges by their Prep Buddies.

Zoe's Prep Buddy, India, was delightful, and they had become good friends.

After school finished, all of the Grade 6 student ran to the local park for a shaving cream fight! This is Zoe's friend, Mia.

That evening, she was transformed into a ballerina.

And we got to see her dancing en pointe for the first time. She looked like a fairy!

On Sunday, December 20, the whole family met at a winery near Shepparton for an early Christmas lunch. It was a perfect summer day and we all had a great time. This is Zoe with her cousin Sophie.

So what have Greg and I been doing? Finishing the school year with all that entails (exams, reports, end of year programs, speech nights, farewells, etc).
But mostly, it's been about Zoe.
