Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To Work He Goes!

 It doesn't seem that long ago that Nelson headed off on his first day of school.
Before we knew it, seven years went by and he was off to his first day of secondary.
 Today he headed off on his first day as an apprentice roof plumber.
After several weeks of sleeping in since finishing school, this morning he had an extra early start - 5.30am! He was pretty excited as they were heading down Geelong way.
When he was working with them as part of his VCAL, he never got to go to the beach jobs. Although I don't think they'll be going down to the beach.

My baby is now officially a tradie!
 Just because he is so cute, thought I'd share a couple of photos of Rex and Molly.
 Waiting patiently for Nelson to get his shoes to go on a walk.
A busy Monday afternoon!
These two get on so well. They divide their time playing,
running around the back yard and sleeping.
