These girls are cute together! I love that in this last picture you can see Estella's different eye colours. I don't really notice any more, in most light you can hardly tell but then I see pics like this that remind me that they are just a little different!

she always has smiles for daddy


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It's BOTTLEMAN!!


I would have said Princess Fiona but I think she looks more like Shrek.
(We had to start Estella on solids this week! Every meal time she grabs for what we are eating and copies us with a little munching mouth. We haven't had any problems introducing her to food. She's such a guts already, especially loving the pumpkin! Minol is an awesome help too and loves to feed his little sister.)

(Minol will put on his clothes, shoes, hat...grab a bag and head for the door saying "Bye. Bye Mumma" and I'll even get a kiss and a wave. He's even got his doggy key ring in these pics.)

"Copy Monkey"
(Picture says it all)

Female Open Medalists

U65kg Medalists

65+kg Medalists

My girls- Rachel, Kirrilee, Sam and Jacinta! So pleased they competed, especially Rachel and Sam who decided at the last minute to give it a go! Look out PAN PACS!

All the girls... plus Minol hiding in the middle of us!

The whole day my kids were beautiful! I was keeping score during the day so it helped having so many people to entertain and distract them! Kaea was pushing Estella around in the pram and Minol decided to have a go.

Equipe Master Wilson Jiu Jitsu Australia Team

As the President of the Australian Federation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Tasmanian Branch, Minol got to put on the Tasmanian Championship. This was held on Saturday 19th of June. The winners from this competition qualify for the Australian Champions Cup. So it was a great day. Our team came first and got a trophy!
