This was my second drone I've stuck up in a tree. Fortunately this one still worked when I got it down...

Audrey's quite a decent skater (I'm not). Amy skated pretty well too - I remember skating together one snowy evening in Warsaw by the rink that is set up by the Palace of Science and Culture every year.
Canberra now has its own outdoor rink (running until the end of July) and Audrey skated around with some competency (while Eli and I watched on the sidelines)

The kids took part in a Kata tournament against another Dojo in the north of the city. It's a pretty friendly (but serious!) affair. For the uninitiated a kata tournament is non-contact, but competitors go through a series of routines against another participant. It makes it interesting as bigger/stronger competitors don't always win if their younger rival has perfected and timed their punches and kicks more appropriately.

The kids and I went along to the launch of an amazing mural in the city next to a skatepark. As part of the launch the kids were allowed to practice graffiti on one of Canberra's (26) legal graffiti walls. Here's some pictures of our morning.
