Today’s post is going to be a little different. Once per month, I’m going to insert a photo in my post, and you have to make a caption to go along with the photo. Then I will choose the best caption to add to the photo. I thought this one would be a pretty easy one to start with, just to get the hang of Picture Caption Talk. I really hope everyone enjoys the Picture Caption Talk and tries their hardest. Some pictures will be very funny, and I hope some people can think of some will lots of humour. I’m really excited to see what people can come up with!
Get your thinking caps on, fill it with lots of humour and wit, and good luck!
Another idea I will have is that whoever leaves really quality comments and makes a few captions will be named the Picture Caption Talk blogger of the month. Jess also had the idea to have the Mystery Picture Blogger of the week.
What do you think of the Picture Caption Talk?
What’s your caption?
Do you think Picture Caption talk blogger of the month is a good idea?

You don’t have to love tennis to love Kim Clijsters, what’s not to love, she’s all class on and off the court
September, 2012, Kim Clijsters played her last match on the WTA Tour, the US Open. Kim easily won her first round match against Victoria Duval from the USA, 6-3, 6-1. But, the second round was a whole different story. Kim was up against Australian born, Laura Robson, who now plays for the UK. It would prove to be an amazing match that would come down to the wire. Kim would stun her with one of her unbelievable forehands, but the left-handed, Robson, did just the same. Groundstroke for groundstroke, volley for volley, it sure was a nailbiting match. (One that made me late for school that day) Robson, was the victor, and leaving poor Kimmy defeated in her last WTA event, 7-6, 7-6.
Although, maybe it’s not all over yet. Kim has a special farewell match on the 12th of December, against Venus Williams in Belgium. This is called ‘Kim’s thankyou games’. It’s a night to be filled with music, giveaways for everyone in the audience, and of course, tennis.
My memories of Kim will stay forever and ever, traveling with me wherever I go. I still remember watching her in the 2012 Aussie Open, where I was lucky enough to get my tennis ball signed by her. It holds pride of place in my room. When I watched Kim play, I am overwhelmed with her power and determination and her wide split shots always have me pumping my fists. Kim has given me more than just great tennis to watch. She has inspired me to dream big, never give in and above all, be strong and confident on and off the court.
The end of a legends era, and the beginning of a new chapter, good luck, my champion!

On Thursday 9th August, 13 students of Leopold Primary School participated in the Victorian Primary School Golf Championship.
The event was held at Torquay golf club and organised by Tony Collier, a Victorian professional golfer and helped by our very own Mr Stribley.
I woke up and it was pouring out there! I knew this was going to be a tough day in the rain and wind!
When I got there with Dad, the Leopold Primary kids got together and we all went up in the lift. We were met up the top by the one and only Tony Collier, he told us all the rules and gave us maps of the course so we knew where to go. Some of the rules were…
Once you had 10 shots, that was your score for that hole. You couldn’t take anymore than 10 shots.
If your ball landed in a bunker, you had 2 shots to get it out of there. if you didn’t get it out of there in 2 shots, you just simply placed it on the edge of the grass next to the bunker.
So off we all went off in groups of three with people from your school. Now let me make this very, very CLEAR. It poured and poured and poured and then it poured some more. It was endless! Then with 2 holes to play, it finally stopped, as if someone was playing a mean trick on us. But it just goes to show you the character of the Leopold students every single student that entered finished.
My score over 7 holes was 46, but the my average over nine holes was 53. My score on each hole was around 4, 5, or 6. Connor, from Grade 6 came first, with an outstanding score of 36.
I like to play golf, just as much as tennis. I love sports:
I love all sports as they keep you very fit!
Overall I came second, which means I made it to the State Regional Final held at the end of this month. I am very excited and I am eager to practise and do well at this special event! Connor will also be playing in this event and it will be held at Curlewis. (Weather permitting, ha ha!)
Unfortunately, our outstanding student teachers, Miss Hannan and Miss Paul finished their student teaching in 4KM and 4KJ on Wednesday, 6th June. 4KM and 4KJ thoroughly enjoyed having Miss Hannan and Miss Paul and 4KM and 4KJ wish them all the best for their teaching career.
Lots of fun things we did with Miss Hannan were:
Learning that Miss Hannan’s sister is Sophie, from the Block. If you don’t know what the Block is, click here, to visit to the website. We also met one of the Block gnomes.
We loved using our imagination while writing narratives.
Doing lots of fun activities in maths like: vertical addition, vertical subtraction and money.
We all enjoyed learning about Bike Ed. We learnt about the parts of a bike, road saftey rules and important tips.
This is Miss Hannan and Miss Paul.
It will be sad to see you go and all of 4KM and 4KJ will miss both of you. I wish you all the best for your teaching career!
What activities did you enjoy with Miss Hannan or Miss Paul?

I chose these players because:

Victoria Azarenka won the Australian Open this year.
Sam Stosur is a sensational player and moves and plays well on clay court. It sure would be great to see and Aussie win another Grand Slam!
In the Men’s Draw, I think either:
I chose these players because:
Rafael Nadal has won clay titles this year, he is known as ‘The Clay King’. He has won the French Open six times.
