running into a reversing car

Last Thursday Willem and Frank were both running ahead of me on the footpath on the way to school and ran straight into a reversing car, actually denting it! Willem lost both his front teeth (wobbly milk ones.. pfew). Frank hurt his leg but after a thorough check at the Children's hospital there was nothing wrong with them..
Just a massive scare.

Great speech

Australia voted against gay marriage. Our Prime Minister Julia Gillard gave her party a conscience vote instead of choosing for equal rights for everyone as the Labour Party she is representing should.  Australia is incredibly backwards sometimes. There was a senator, Cory Benardi, who said "legalising same-sex marriage could lead to demands to legalise bestiality and polygamy". It makes me ashamed to be part of this country (even though I love living here). But last week something happened in politics that made me like JUlia Gillard again. Listen to this.. Pretty good, hey!
