Well spring is now here and we've had some warm sunny days this weekend. Happy Father's Day, especially to those first time dads. The kids at school spent a lot of time on their hand crafted Father's Day gifts last week so I hope they were appreciated today. Yesterday I popped up early to school and spotted some kangaroos at the foot of the White Swan Reservoir ( about 500 m as the crow flys from our school) and just for a change I had my camera with me so I took one good photo and one of them bounding off when I moved a bit closer. It is great to have a school setting so close to Ballarat ( population 90 000+) yet surrounded by farm land and bush inhabited by our native animals.
