Tournament of Minds (and some fun in Shepparton)
Louis was part of three teams from his school to be part of the challenge that is the "Tournament of Minds". It was the first time the school participated and all three groups were awarded with honours.
They had 6 weeks to practise their 10 minute performance as well had a spontaneous challenge behind closed doors on the day. All of the kids were either in grade 3 or 4 and did so well to perform in front of a panel of judges. So proud of them all!
Nervous face waiting to begin...
Receiving feedback from the judges...
After it was all done we had lunch at the lake and those gorgeous looking pelicans were actually quite aggressive. One of them snappped Jaydens hand! We heard on the radio on the way home to stay away from them, would have been helpful if we heard it on the way in! Haha.
We then had a great time at Aquamoves swimming and going down the waterslide. It was such a beautiful day in Shepparton, 20 degrees, that I thought we'd stretch it out to a play at the park as well. The boys were happy with that!
After quite a bit of time trying to get his swinging happening Dylan got it working for him today! He was so proud of himself!
We didn't leave until after 5pm and got home in the dark. The boys were so tired but luckily I had already plannned ahead for dinner so just had to heat up some lasagne and we were all set. Huge day though! Lots of fun...
