party time again….

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

It’s a year since we had our first week-long blog party.
And what a lot of fun we had.
Since then we (that would be eight children ages 1-13) have continued to record our inventions and adventures (though it’s mostly the older kids who write πŸ˜‰ ) throughout the year Down Here in New Zealand. Please feel free to come on and in and see a snippet or two of our lives. If you come back tomorrow you’ll be able to see the costume we have designed and are making.

    Well hi, kids! What a lovely blog you have! And what fun to take turns and write in it! I bet it’s fun to write about your adventures and think about how much you’re learning.

    Oops, I shouldn’t have said that. It sort of spoils the fun, doesn’t it. *grin*

    You guys keep up the good work and don’t forget to party on!

    We’re glad you enjoyed our blog and yes it is fun to take turns at writing on it. Don’t worry about spoiling the fun because it doesn’t. It is fun to write and then read back on previous posts.

    Wow, what an awesome family you have – beautiful pictures, btw – you’re ticker on the top of your blog says something about flying on a plane.

    Where you going?

    It’s so nice to meet you and thank you for having me over – enjoy the rest of the party and have a great week!
