A Quick getaway to Rainbow Beach.

I put together a video for the Woody Boys to enjoy their quick getaway. Most of the photos are from the boys taking photos, and even David taking photos (Mum got to have a photo with her boys for once!)

Love how cute children are.

Have you got a video of your children that I can see?

How To Tell The Boys?

How Do I Tell Our Older Two Boys?

Today it came to me what I want to do with our life, before time is wasted. BUT how do I tell the older two Woody Boys?

I dropped the older boys off to high school this morning and then went out and about doing chores that needed to be done. While I was out it hit me how much time we are wasting in our life to find the right time to follow our heart. SO I came home and I got into gear. I checked out eBay and discovered a bus for sale that is big enough for all Five Woody Boys and David and I to travel Australia in.

I jumped in with both feet and placed a bid. Talk about scary stuff. I was shaking like a leaf…..but knew deep down that it is the right move ahead for our Woody boys and Woody house!!

I feel like I need to follow my heart. I need to follow my dreams. I am not sure what this burning desire is to jump with both feet in and chase my dreams, nor understand why I feel like I need to do it today – but I have learnt lately that when I listen to my inner voice I follow my heart and it all works out for the best.

How To Tell The Boys?

HOW do I tell the boys is my only concern? Our oldest is in High school – in year 10 and our second boy is in year 9 at high school. With our oldest I am concerned because it is an important time in his life. With our second oldest I am not too concerned because he is not doing too well at highschool at the moment. Actually he is falling behind in most of his subjects and failing most of his exams so  I think homeschooling on the road would be ideal for his needs/situation.

The younger three Woody boys are home from school today so they know what I have done, and are very excited:)

Wish me luck with the other two Woody Boys for tonight. If you hear fireworks sometime tonight after 5:00 pm – thats alright – its only my two older Woody Boys finding out what Mum has done!!

Do you have any tips or advice on how I can tell the older Woody Boys?

Cheers

Out Of The Mouth Of Babes

From The Mouth Of Babes

I love hearing how children talk, and how they take everything literally!!

On the weekend just gone, we had a quick getaway to Rainbow Beach.  While we were there we got to see the different colours in the sand at the Sand blow.

After returning home the boys had much to discuss over the next few days, and to say what their favorite from the day was. We have a saying in our house….where at the end of the day we ask each boy what their favorite was from the day. Each time we ask each Woody boy we are blown away by their answer.

From the Mouth Of A Babe

Our youngest Woody boy was on the phone to his grandparents and I happened to walk by and catch what he was saying…..

“Now I know where Rainbows come from Grandma. They come from Rainbow beach. They start at the beach and then are put in the sky so we can see them”.

How priceless is that? I love how simple they like to make things.

Have you got a wonderful saying that your child has said? What has come out of the mouth of a babe in your household? Would love to hear your thoughts…and hear how cute your little one is?

Rainbow Beach – Woody Boys Having Fun.

A Weekend Away….Ends Up With Three Woody Boys Having Fun

Rainbow Beach

This weekend we decided to go on a Quick Getaway to Rainbow Beach. We had the most amazing weekend, it was too short but now that we know where Rainbow Beach is, and how magical the place is we will be back 🙂

Here are a few photos of our boys having fun…

Here are two of our Woody Boys at Carlo Sand Blow – looking over the edge into Rainbow Beach. It would have to be the most amazing place on earth 🙂

Here is also a photo of Mummy Woody with Kyle and Cameron Wood, after we had finished our walk at Carlo Sand Blow we sat down on a log, and I asked David Woody to take a photo of Mum (me) with her boys. It is very rare for me to have a photo, normally I am the one taking the photos!!

Hugging two of my woody boys

Will put the photos into a clip so that you can see them all, as we took so many over the weekend 🙂 How was your weekend spent?

Cheers

From The Woody Boys

Here Is A Video from Two Of Our Woody Boys…

I have posted this video here on Woody Boys before, but this time I have edited the music/video so that you can hear the boys speak about the “Gratitude Rocks”

Stay tuned for more – in a week or two our third boy who is 11 years old will have his idea ready to go, with a website set up. His idea is pretty amazing, even if I say so 🙂 I am proud of how my Woody Boys think.

Have you got a proud moment to share? Please comment and let me know how proud you are of your children.

Cheers

Mothers Day

Looking Forward To Mothers Day Tomorrow

I am so excited. On Sunday morning I expect to be woken at some ungodly hour in the morning by three little woody boys with numerous breakfast choices/a weird cup of coffee, grins all round, and giggles on the bed.

The older two woody boys – being teenagers –  will be fast asleep and will miss out on all the fun. I am sure that they will have more install for when they do surface from their bedrooms!!

Mothers Day

I have overheard the three younger Woody boys talking. I am not sure how I am going to eat all of their breakfast choices 🙂 Yoghurt, Strawberries, Muesli, Cup of tea, Cup of Coffee, Jam toast and who knows what else they can manage!! I am so happy and so looking forward to waking up. Mornings are not my thing, I am actually a night owl – but this is one time the boys are allowed to wake me early – besides Christmas that is.

I love to see their smiles, and the wonderful cards that they make at school. Baby Woody – Kyle has been telling me that he has a gift hidden in his room for me. Actually all day long he has been asking me if he can bring it out to show me. I keep distracting him so that I can receive it tomorrow. He is so excited that he was able to make his first gift for the first time. Being in Prep School is really good for Kyle, actually he is thriving at school. He is coping much better than I am, I still get sad dropping him off at school 🙂

How Are You Spending Mothers Day?

How are you going to spend Mothers Day tomorrow? For all the Mothers of the World – Happy Mothers Day sent your way. May it be spent with loved ones, full of laughter, and fun.

We are heading off to the beach. It is my all time favorite activity and I love watching my boys spend their day having fun.

Love being a Mum, love being with my Woody Boys.

Cheers

A Day At The Beach

Yesterday we took the boys to the beach.

We had so much fun. All three younger Woody Boys love the water, and the sand. We stayed nearly all day. They were so into making a sandcastle that it was almost impossible to get them off the beach for lunch. In the end I had to put my foot down and say no lunch, no going back to the beach after lunch.

We have a saying in our house “What Was The Best Part Of Your Day” and then the boys tell us what they enjoyed the most. Both Cameron and Kyle answer was digging holes 🙂

A Day At The Beach

The waves were that big some times that us adults got dumped into them. I was surprised with how big some of the waves were. Kyle was amazing. He had his first go on a boggy board and even though he was thrown off numerous times, he still got back on. Cameron, being Cameron was not going out far on the boggy board, he stayed close to the edge.

At the end of the day the boys had hot chips at the beach. I was good, I did not touch any of the hot chips even though I wanted to!! I am on Day 9 of my 14 Day Water Fast. Nearly finished 🙂 To see my story of how I am coping go here.

I love the Day at the Beach. If I could I would live at the beach. All the boys slept so much better last night, and even slept in this morning.

Next time I will remember to take my camera and get photos – some of those waves were gold.

Looking forward to our weekend of camping coming up in a few weeks time.

How was your weekend?

Cheers
