Lost and Found

I'm back. After a long blog sabbatical I decided my life is again stable enough to fill cyber space with my ramblings! 

Since my last post, my family of 7 packed all our belongings into storage, lived in tents, lived in a caravan and finally found a place to live only 5 minutes from where we were living 3 months previously! The irony. 

We started home schooling! Yay!

Here are a few pics to give you a taste of what we have been up to.
This was our campsite, complete with long drop toilet up the track.
Another view of our temporary home. (Our extended family Kathy and Jules in the camp chairs)
We visited the Gunns Plains caves.
 We had some fun times!

Living in a caravan with 5 kids and home schooling! Am I mad? Much longer and maybe I would have been! Haha! The caravan belongs to our good friends, who were so welcoming and hospitable that what could have been a nightmare was a real blessing. It certainly did stretch us and bond us as a family. It was a great experiment to see if traveling was a good idea for our family. We did enjoy most of our time, despite a lot of cold rainy weather, broken tents, leaky air mattresses, cramped living conditions, our car kept braking down and a very small budget! It is nice have a home again. 

Home schooling is definitely for us! But more on that some other time!
