Last week was filled with Oliver rehearsals, Karate training, bike riding, humid weather, frizzy hair and swimming galas (junior and senior). During the galas, parents were predicting children's results based on their nationality. Looks like my kids were representing Australia! Haha. Sorry Oz, but we only came midfield.
