Oscar Starts School

I have finally reached a milestone, my youngest went to school this week. I did not know how he was feeling about this momentous occasion as he had not expressed excitement or displeasure at going to school. Monday morning he woke up got dressed and proceeded to ask are we going yet - at 7am. So I knew my answer. I Was not at all sad as I have been waiting for him to go to school so I could start a new phase in my life - I am going to University to study teaching. He is enjoying school but is still wondering why he has to go to school every day-

Happy 2012

So why am I only writing Happy new Year now well I have been travelling for the past 5 weeks. We travelled overland to Adelaide via the outback. It was one amazing experience and I just wanted to share some of my highlights.Pelicans at Coorong National Park, South Australia. I have wanted to go here since studying the book Storm boy as a child at school. We stood watching older birds teach the younger ones how to land on water and how to fly in formation.
Emus on a salt pan at Coorong National Park. I love these birds and it was stunning to see them in the wild.
Long endless roads. Not as boring or as lifeless as I thought they would be.
Isabella in a field of Lavender in the Barossa Valley. She was so taken with these lovely scented rows.
Desert Sunset - What more can I say.
The Flinders Ranges in South Australia was Anthony's highlight it made him want to paint again. The ancient rocks and the vistas just are too stunning for words.
The kids at Maggie Beer's farm in the Barossa Valley. The are just all standing there taking in all the birdlife on the lake.
Isn't this the most gorgeous sunset - I could not help but grab my camera. It is on the Murray River
That was one long drive! And that is Kilometres!
Hope you have enjoyed just a snapshot of our 5 weeks.
