King of scores

Today was our turn to score at Jennys basketball team. Anders went for a score class to learn the basic. When we came the other team parent who also scored was not that good at the clock so she wanted to score so Anders was in charge of the clock. What a challenge..... But the game finished with Balwyn Blazers as winner and that is Jennys team. They just won with one point so the teams was very equal. A very good match.

Lake Mountain and snow

Jenny went with her friend Claire to Lake Mountain today to see snow. It is a two hour car ride from Melbourne. Sadly it was not that much snow and the snow they saw was very weet. They could build a half igloo that was all.

He has been working very hard and late so he will probably sleep now for two weeks when he is off from school. He is welcome back to work when the high season is comming in October and he is off from school. They will probably see him again. He has been working on all diffrent part of the place like reception, cleaning, kitchen, resturant and conferance.

The Proposal

Today I went to the movie myself to see "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock (Margret) and Ryan Reynolds (Andrew). When high-powered book editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she´s actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant Andrew, who she´s tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. A nice comedy and laughs but quit bredictible.

Lukas and his friend Cassy baked australian scones with choklat inside. When they were ready you eat them with jam and cream. I think we had flour all over the kitchen when they were done.

The Hangover

Tonight Lukas, Anders and I went to the movie and saw "The Hangover". Two days before his wedding, Doug and his three buddies drive to Vegas for a blowout night they´ll nerver forget. But when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with pounding headaches, they can´t remember a thing. Their posh hotel suite is beyond trashed and the groom is nowhere to found. This movie is so funny and we laught so much. This is a movie you must see.

"The Dream"

Today we went to see Lukas play in "The Dream" at his Drama class production. It is a part from Shakespears "The Midsummer Dream". Lukas plays "Botton" and a fairy turn him into a Dunky but in the end he is a man again who falls in love and kill himself. We were sitting in the Drama room so it was small so we almost sat at the scen. Everybody was very good and it was fun to see them play.

Samson & Delilah

Today I went to the movie with my neighbor Paula and saw "Samson & Delilah". The movie is about Samson and Delilah´s small world in an isolated community in the Central Australians desert. When tragedy strikes they turn their backs on home and embark on a journey of survival. They don´t say many words during the movie but it is a strong and very touthing story about the two teenagers. I can recomend seeing it.
