Holidays up north: Sea World

Sea World
I went there as a baby, and I don't remember a thing! This time though, we got a Homeschool discount (25% off!), a couple of cool rides, and (wait for it, wait for . . . - excuse me, where's the drumroll?) . . . A swim with the Dolphins!!!! It was so cool! There was eight girls, two dolphins, and two instructors. We were split up into two groups, one with each dolphin. I  was with Tyson; the other was called Cyrus.
We got them to do jumps, tail-walking, and lots of other fun things!!
Lots of Fun!!!

Holidays up north: Marian Valley

After the Lennox Head Homeschool Camp, we drove up to Coolangatta. Coolangatta was about an hour away from where we were, and is on the Queensland and New South Wales border. It as actually quite funny; travelling interstate all week!
the view from the apartment - the Beach
We (Mum and me!) picked Dad up from the Coolangatta airport [Helpful Hint: ALWAYS update your Nav-Man, Tom-Tom, or GPS BEFORE you go on holidays!!{as we got lost}]. I have learnt to keep quiet when Mum is telling the GPS off!!

I unfortunately caught a bug, which EVERYONE from homeschool camp got!(and some poor people had to go back home on the train!! poor things!). I will spare you the horrors and disgusting details of the Saturday, and will move on to a new subject!
Now, as the dialog has finished, ATTENTION! FORWARD MARCH! TO THE MARIAN VALLEY!
Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal
Mum knows a lady through blogger, Anne, who makes Rosaries and beautiful craft (to visit her blog, click HERE). We met her and her family for Mass and Lunch in the Marian Valley. It is such a beautiful place. If you're ever up that way, do visit!

Clockwise, from the top: Angela, Grace
and Me!

St. Joseph
Well, the day ended far too quickly, soon we had to go . . .
We drove back to Coolangatta, had a delicious dinner (of what, I can't remember - whoops!) and laid our sleepy eyes to rest!
Oh, well! All good things come to an end, sooner or later, as this post has . . .
Love Sararose xox ♥♥♥


I was writing up my blog post (for school) and Dad gave me a parcel. I unwraped it and I found a Pink top; on it was a elabrate cross, and it has written next to it: Lord, by your cross and resurrection, You have set us free. You are the Saviour of the world.
I will post some photos up later, now I'm going to try it on!
Lots of Love,

Homeschool Camp . . .(yes there is such a thing!)

As some of you know, I have been away (before the school holidays) at camp and up north.
I will post about Queensland later (probably next week), however now, I am going to put about the Homeschool camp I went to . . .
Random dancing - I'm the one in the white top,
pretty skirt, and grey tights {Anna is wearing
the pretty dress, which I have just like it . . .

I live in Medowie, 40 minutes from Newcastle, and Lennox Head (where the camp was at) is 6 or so hours north. Mum couldn't drive that far, and I can't blame her! We stayed at a friends house overnight [Mrs. Hassett, I hope you enjoy this publicity!] and awoke with the sun on a lovely Monday! the Hassetts have the most AWESOME LIBRARY!!!!!! I fell in love with it!!! there was books everywhere!!! cool!!!!(sigh)!!!!

We drove down Princess and Jelly Bean, and 2 hours later, we were at camp!!! We tumbled out of the car, and tried to find our friends before out mums called us back to help unpack.
Me: purple ring; Princess: blue ring; Anna: green ring;
and Jelly Bean: red ring

Our priests were Fr. Risso (I think thats how his name is spelt!) and Fr. Gabriel. We had teams: Red Bosco, Blue Assisi, and Green Mackillop. I was in Mackillop; Go go Mackillop Green!

Spiritual talks, mass, and choir singing, exploring rock pools, kite flying, sports day, burying other people in sand; all part of the experience!
Coming third place

gosh, who do we have here?
well, Jelly Bean, Princess, Brigid, Me, Anna, and
 Rosias' sister,
Each night events, such a quizzes, games and a talent show, were held. on the Thursday night there was a bonfire; down at the beach (did I mention that it was a 2 minute walk to the beach?) and out in the field.

All heaps of fun, and I am going to another camp (down south) this week!!! Blog later!

Which Austen Heroine are You?

I am . . .

Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.
Pretty accurate!
  • Me, attractive! Tremendously attractive! Thanks, but you must be meaning the girl over there . . . in the pretty dress . . .
  • Otherwise - Pretty accurate! Pretty much me!

Love Elizabeth Bennet!
