What a week

Josh and Larissa have arrived in WA - Josh has found full-time work at a butchers but is hoping to get into the mining industry. Larissa has applied for a few jobs and hopes to have work soon.

Josie had her dance competitions and she did a song and dance routine singing "Love Story" by Taylor Swift - she lost points as the judge said she didn't project her voice enough so only received an honourable mention. She was so worried before going on the stage and this is her first solo dance competition (when she was 6 years old she did a group tap competition).

My little nephew was born - his name is Jakob Danuel and so adorable - here he is with his big cousin Sammi. Don't you just love the smell of a newborn baby and how soft they are.

My husband is a hero - he save a guys life at work (but typical Jeff wants no hero status and just wants to go on and do his job). They were working under ground in mine shaft when Jeff realised he couldn't see his workmate anymore so had a look for him and found him face down in puddle of water with his face submerged. The guy was too large for Jeff to move so Jeff hit the emergency switch and then sat with the guy holding his head out of the puddle administering first aid until the paramedics got down the shaft. The guy is okay and now up walking and talking (doing tests to find out why he collapsed).
