Yeahhhh We are back. It has been a few weeks since our last post and I apologize to those who have been following our journey and I left stranded. I hit a bad block of writters block. Amongst the kaos of getting the kids settled in their new environment and being home alone for four weeks at a time I lost my mojo. I have however written myself out some new goals for the next year and keeping up with my weekly blog is one of them.
The boys they have settled in to our new home, community and life without a hiccup. The boys are going to White Gum Valley Public School, Xavier now in year 2 and Wentworth our wild and adventurous one has surprised us all in his start to school. Mak is missing his brothers like mad and cant wait for school to end each day for his play mates to come home and play with him. For those of you who know me and my boys we dont sit around too much and they are keen to be involved in many sports and hobbies. Xavier is playing Rugby league, Gymnastics, swimming lessons and is now playing the drums, which he does practise each day without reminder. Wentworth is playing Rugby League, gymnastics, swimming lessons and spends every other waking moment on his one and only…skateboard. I love watching my kids find love it their choice of activities. At the moment they do tend to stick together but Im sure as they grow and follow their loves they will each find their own loves. Mak is still home with me on our daily adventures. He has however just started swimming lessons and loves the water like a fish. After having two very hesitant swimmers it is a pleasant suprise to watch mak bomb his swimming teacher without an inch of fear.
Steve, the boys miss their dad being around, so much . When ever Mak is in trouble he tells me ” im going to tell daddy on you when he gets home” It is very hard for Mak as he does not yet understand time. He also has lost his two brothers to school and Steve at work. We do have alot of fun but he always loving life so much more when dads home. The two older boys have a much better understanding of, Steve working to support our future travel and adventures. Working away has its ups and downs. We are saving, for once. It is great to have Steve home for a week, we can get out and about Western Australia to see new places, Steve helps in the boys classrooms.. We all know its not for ever so we make the most of what we have chosen to continue with our dream of travel and great family adventure.
We have been so lucky to take the plunge and try something new. Some days are hard, long and lonely but we are always learning and challenging our selves. Im so glad we took this chance to have ago at something new….
We are headed to the Margret River in a week, pleases let us know what we shouldn’t miss!
Until next week xoxoxoxxoxoxo
