Hi ppl,
My hubby is away at work and I don't fancy the crowds with 3 kids under 7 by myself or even with friends but need to do SOMETHING with my little Aussies for Oz Day!

So I am thinking, take them for a drive later and park somewhere to watch the fireworks.. Even if its miles away its better than nothing, right? Baby can be asleep, 4 yr old wont have tired legs .. I really DO need that double pram  closedeyes.gif

Or is a carpark South of Freo on the coast with a view to the harbour an impossibility? Would it be too good to be true ?

Thanks EB'ers original.gif

Have you thougth about somewhere along Canning Hwy, near Tompkins Park? Or even just getting there a bit earlier and securing a parking spot and getting the kids out, not too big a venue for kids to run off out of sight.

Or just somewhere around the Applecross area, up on a hill, overlooking the city.

(btw I am referring to the fireworks in the city, rather than the Freo ones)

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
