Footy Finals!

Today was week two of footy finals. It was a much more successful day today. Both Mitchell and Austin won! 
Mitchell's team was ahead most of the day and in the end won beat Nortchote by 22 points. I took this photo at home as both games were at the same time. Noel and Nelson watched Mitchell and I went to Austin's game.
Austin's match was a very exciting one. At one point they were down 30 points but after half time, they came out firing and won by 3 points! I was timekeeper and boy, was that stressful! The thing about being time keeper is that you know exactly how much time is left on the clock. The match was nearly over and it got to the point that if one of the teams kicked a goal, they would have won. Luckily for us the boys were able to keep the ball down their end. Although they didn't get another goal, they stopped South Morang from scoring.

So next week is Grand Final week! Hopefully, their matches will be scheduled so that both of us can go to both matches.
Thought I'd show you Molly helping to stack the dish washer!

Molly started at Puppy School today and went very well. I forgot to take the camera so no photos. I think she was a bit shell shocked. She had never seen so many dogs. Coming home she just sat very quietly on my knee. I think it's the first time I've seen her sit still for longer than a few seconds. She was exhausted!

Hi Christine, you are right... I have blogged for 3(?) years and have never had a spammer, even though I have never ever used that awful word verification. I think the people who do that are probably going to target bigger, well known blogs, not little nothing blogs like mine.
That is one very muddy boy!!! How in the world did you ever get him clean again? :-) And Molly looks like she is very helpful in the kitchen! LOL!
