she’s lost another 2 teeth since her birthday!

today we went up into bladensburg national park – its a beautiful, rugged spot with waterholes the kids can’t resist

we’ve been fortunate to have marg & bill with us for 6 weeks this term. marg is a vise tutor & bill is an angel – literally! vise volunteers give their time & expertise to support the education of isolated children & their families (you can read more about vise here & here). they arrived at a time when i was worn down & exhausted from a long struggle with health issues & the stress associated with educating your own kids. because of them, i had the time to go to sydney, see a variety of specialists & find some alternate treatments that worked! because of them, i’ve returned feeling energised & hopeful about the future (rather than stressed about having to "catch up" 2 weeks of schoolwork). because of them, i can enjoy just being mama for awhile. i’m so grateful for the time we’ve had with them … their support has been such a blessing!
