It has been a soggy week in Victoria with grey skies and heavy rain almost every day. Friday morning, however, saw a brilliant rainbow over the city that lifted everyone’s spirits. The boys have been busy with sport and school, and certainly look forward to the weekend.
Here are some shots of Justin and Matt from the SMUS Police Basketball Tournament.
Justin also helped coordinate the Intercultural Council’s Lunar New Year Chapel on Wednesday and Thursday. Xavier presented via video and Justin helped with the opening breathes.
While there were no major events during the week, the boys were in good spirits and kept busy with ping pong, studying and hanging out. Not even the rain can get their spirits down!
Saturday Activities saw MudMee, Ryan, Eric and Josh working hard to help our local farmer friend to move an impressive 110 wheel barrows of manure to help fertilize his apple trees. It was neat to see their hard work come full circle as they were delighted to enjoy some tasty apple cider from those very trees and saw their garlic bulbs that were planted and mulched before Christmas starting to pop out! They also found a small snake to hold and discovered that Brussels sprout and chard plants look a lot like palm trees!
The chickens were also very intrigued by our visit.
Here is a time lapse of some of those wheel barrows
Adam and Ken volunteered to help clean up the beach where we do our Penguin Swim, thanks boys!
It is Sunday and the sun is shining! Let’s hope it is a sign of weather to come 😉
