On Monday afternoon I came home from Broken Hill after having been there for four or so days.
I had an awesome time! :)
I watched it three times and I would have gone back for more if I could have :)
It was really great.
And apart from that it was also really good to hang around with old friends and also with some new ones...
It started Saturday at 9:00. At the Christian School. Em and I were both pretty alert looking out for 'our girls'.
This wasn't all of us. There were more. But this is just one picture out of many.
Will, Cherry, Georgie, Angela, Jo, Emily...
I cropped myself out because I look really miserable.
I had a great time.
Some of the day was spent wandering around, taking photos, talking, ect. We played Laser Tag for about two hours which was fun. I won. I'm good with a gun.
Then, in the afternoon, we ate, played basketball, played hand-ball, messed around, ect.
That night was the concert. There was lots of talent. Emily got up and sang one of her own songs, which, strangely, made me cry.
Then I got up with all (or most, a few may have been missing) the other Dunn Swamp ( http://jrebekkah-itslife97.blogspot.com/2010/10/dunn-swamp.html) kids and we sang a song together. It was pretty good :).
Sunday Emily and I sat in for a session. The guy talking was a Kiwi who talked really fast and was possibly a little hard to understand at times, but it was still okay.
That afternoon we played a Wide Game with noodles. Possibly this is why my shoulders are so terribly sore today. Because I wielded my noodle so viciously.
Then that afternoon, Muster finished for most. A few stuck around. We swam. And played Mud Volleyball.
I'm still picking grains of sand and dirt out of my hair. It was awesome though.
Good times, good times...
Dubbo has had lots of rain in the past week. Heaps and heaps.
Roads have been closed, shops have been closed, and I've never seen the water come up so high. Our backyard has had it's own little pool.
It's kind of a local attraction at the moment. People go and sit on the bridge and take photos.
We went down to have at look ourselves on Thursday. The next day where we had been standing was covered in water. I was honestly thinking about going for a swim in the football oval.
It's a little bit scary, but it's also very awesome.
