Early Childhood classes

I thought I'd put in my bid for quote of the year:

Every classroom needs to have people who know how to make sparks bright and globes light

Jessaholic 'EPL and Jessica Watson' lunch

Two years ago Jessica Watson sailed into Sydney Harbour to finish her quest to be the youngest to sail around the world non-stop and via the notorious Cape Horn no less.

Sometime before that a bunch of people formed likeable acquaintances through her daily blog updates. Some of us just had to comment every time, we couldn't resist☺☺☺

Later we called ourselves the Jessaholics (acquaintance turned into friendship) and set up a blog to keep in touch as well as watch and report on Jessica's spirit of adventure.

Last week we got together and 'holics' from around Australia
and the world had lunch at Mooloolaba. It was Fantazmagorrical.

Jessica Watson was gracious enough to fit us into her busy schedule and joined us at the Wharf Tavern at Mooloolaba.
Her mum Julie and sister Emily came along as well as Andrew Fraser from 5 Oceans media.

                                          Here's Andrew Fraser, Emily, Jess and Julie
                                        (It was a bit glary from where I was sitting, sorry).

She'll be sailing the Sydney 38 class boat Another Challenge.

"I'm told I need to get a bit nastier... our coach...says there are no please and thankyous and it's got to be 'now'."
The crew Cameron Dale, Genevieve Warlow and Mike Perham.

What's the Big fuss about Laura?

I don't see it as such a big deal that Laura Dekker is a youngster.
She's going the safer way (wind and wave wise) anyway!

I would be daunted to do something like sail in the Southern oceans like Jessica Watson did.
The only worry for me would be that Atlantic bit if I was Laura.
I wish Laura all the best, it seems like she has the aptitude to do it.
