We are really enjoying our time in Australia, yes we miss home, but we love learning things from the Australians. They really have taught us a lot, but here are ten things.
This is another message I heard that really stirred my heart. So often I stand on the playground monitoring, but I loved this analogy of what I need to learn while I am out there. Let me share my notes. Anytime I think about learning from kids, my mind always goes to Honduras, hence my picture....
Last year at the end of the school year the students and parents of my classroom surprised me with a night away at Binna Burra Lodge. One of the students told me they wanted to get me a bridge climb as a gift, but someone had done a little research, found my blog, and realized I had already climbed it. In finding my blog though they realized I loved adventure and outdoors. Needless to say a really thoughtful, and amazing gift.
On our spontaneous weekend, the whole reason we got off track was the thought missing a festival. This festival only happens every other year and this year happened to be the 50th anniversary. Needless to say, they went all out.
I went to church last Friday night and, I wanted share. I feel like so often we get so hung up on the details that do not matter, we need a reality check of what really matters. Here are my notes...
On our spontaneous weekend, we stayed in a cute little town in New South Whales. The picture above is how I spent a lot of our trip. There was so much to see, so many things I wanted to take pictures of.
About two hours from Brisbane is this wonderful track of road that has amazing things. Nature, waterfalls, coffee with a view, country views, animals, and one really curvy road all mixed into together. To top it off the end of the road has a wonderful lake called Moogerah.
Ever seen so much countertop in one place? Yeah, me neither. On our spontaneous weekend, one of the things we crossed off the my my list was hiking Bald Rock.
One Saturday morning we woke up and decided to go see Lake Moogerah. I have a list of places around Brisbane I want to see. So, we decided to cross this one off the list. It was very pretty, and a good day trip from Brisbane. We just did not go straight there. It took us a full 24 hours to get there.....
Across the New South Whales border is a cute little town that we kept hearing about, we decided it was time to explore.
