Here is how we sent the boys off to school today!
The school is running a charity game. All the countries were posted on the notice board, and you could bid on the country of your choice. The group who offered the highest bid gets to own the country.
One of our teachers was born in Australia, another lived in Adelaide for 4 years, and 2 other teachers and 1 grouped together and "bought" Australia for 35 euros. (the English team sold for 150 euros, and the German team 140! Our friend James bought Iran for 5 euros)
When Australia plays, the boys are allowed to wear something Australian to school. We asked our parents to send over a tshirt, and we have 3 different ones to choose from. Today the boys chose these ones. Phil got some face painting crayons,and this is what we came up with!

Phil is going to the Australian Embassy this afternoon to watch the match against Japan!

It is a lot of fun here at the moment! Lots of flags hanging from peoples homes, we put our Aussie ones up this morning too! :)

LOVE IT!! The boys look fab in their Aussie gear. Come on Aussie, come on! I'll be watching the game this afternoon as well - hopefully at home on Sky.
