Sydney to Newie...

Yeah!!! We're in Sunny Sydney!!! Touched down on Thursday night.

We rented a car for one day and decided on a whim to drive up to Newcastle to visit Paul.

Here we go on the road once again...

Smiley driver


EVERY single time we go on a road trip, we end up going through a navigational nightmare (perhaps because I am the navigator?)

Arrrghhhh!!! We're LOST!!! And we can't seem to even get OUT of Sydney, much less get on the freeway to Newcastle...


Finally after going a few circles around Sydney, we made it OUT in one piece onto the Sydney-Newcastle freeway...

Stopped at McDonalds along the way... french fries and milkshakes always help to put a smile back on faces...


Here we are at Paul's student accomodation...


Typical student room... quite tidy lar... :)


Hehe... no need for those books anymore... bring on the game consoles!!!


Some assurance that our dear Paul isn't starving to death out here...

It's been quite an extended course - 12 sessions but held over the past few months. Because it was paused over certain busy holiday periods, plus we only have it once a fortnight anyway.

We had a pot bless before our final wrap up session to share what was the most significant thing we learnt in this course.

So our Mondays are free again.

But our pastor said that they might soon be starting another course on Parenting, which I will be keen to attend. I feel there is so much to parenting that I still don't know about. I guess I could just dive straight into it and still survive, because so many have gone before me and lived to tell the tale.

I think the most important thing I want to learn about good parenting is how to instill the right values in my children.

DSC06501A_thumb[1]Three Questions

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

DSC05282My cup runneth over

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
