Allycia's Newsletter - April 2014
I have been on two Girl Guide Camps and have been awarded my Assistant Leader Badge with my Guiding Name Rainbow Warrior. The first camp was at Mon Repos and was fabulous. I got to see turtles and went to the Bundaberg Ginger Factory.
I bought six bottles of Ginger Beer. There was pink grapefruit, normal, lime and passionfruit. I went to Kindilan on the last week end in March. I got to go canoeing and camped in a tent. It was awesome.
I went to have my first official stay at the Caloundra Getaway – a new experience for me. Michaela and I stayed at Gramps and Gran’s Unit with our friend Chris. Chris is a qualified teacher who decided to come and stay with us for a few days to help us get better at doing things as individuals.
I learned I could wash up on my own, I cooked my own dinner –rissoles with cheese and pizza sauce, swept the floor and made my bed. Chris took us to the Caloundra RSL for dinner one night. Both Michaela and I had to check that the unit was locked up when we went out, and had to let ourselves in as well. The new thing I learned at the Caloundra Getaway was how to wash dishes and I will certainly be practising this new skill at home with my dear Mum.
Over the holidays I have had sleep overs with Aunty Mary and Uncle Geoff, Freya and my sister, Kristina. Thank you for taking good care of me. Freya and I watched Alvin and the Chipmunks and her Dad, Chris took us to MovieWorld. I went on the Scooby Coaster, Wild West Falls and the Roadrunner. I watched two shows: Batman and Marilyn Monroe, so I was lucky. I screamed on the rollercoaster and the Wild West Falls because I was going to get wet. My Catwoman face is one that I learned from my good friend Martha!
Mum and I went to the West End Film Festival to see the screening of mum’s short film ‘Car Pool’. We caught up with Tfer and Michael there. I was excited to see Mum’s film on the big screen.
Probably the highlight of the last two months has been the Easter weekend, when lots of my family visited Mum and I at Flaxton. Kristina, Nik, Adam and Sarah all stayed over during the weekend. Aunty Mary and Uncle Geoff came up for a day to visit. Aunty Jules and Lydia had a sleep over on Sunday night and we watched the Hunger Games films. I had lots of fun in the Easter Egg hunt on Sunday and got lots of chocolates of course. It was so nice having my awesome family around me. I am so lucky. The next two months are sure to be just as action packed with lots to look forward to. Stay tuned for the next exciting instalment!
Thank you very much for your time and help
