Today's outing.....

The last day at school for Chris-- rather morning as they are free after 11:30am, while Grace went to get her grades at her school.
It was quite warm so we decided to go to the beach again, Grace went earlier with her friends just after receiving their grades.
We arrived at the beach after lunch and took a couple of pics...This time i went in for a swim, water temperature is around 17 degrees celcius!!
((you can click on all pics to enlarge if you want))
Only stayed a couple of hours at the beach as we had to visit MIL and then off to town for Chris swimming, for getting his "diploma C".



The children had to do lots of diferrent swimming strokes and one of them Chris wasn't really goed at so we were a bit afraid he didn't made it. He was asked to do it again the said swimming stroke and it seems it was alright so he got his certificate. On the last picture, one of the examinator had whispered something to him...i think Chris favorite teacher during his swimming lessons.
Been stitching but very very slow and not much to show for progress. The card below was completed a while back as well as the summer pinkeep and the Hardanger for a friend's birthday.

It is Shari's big day today. Happy happy birthday, Shari!! I do hope you will have a lovely day!!




Many many thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We sure have a busy one...saturday--to a birthday party and then to friends place for BBQ. Sunday--visiting family and then out for dinner as hubby is leaving monday to sea. He just had two weeks off this time. Hopefully, next will be longer...
