June 2013- Deep Winter

(First published at Sandbox to Socrates

Our old mate the swamp wallaby features again…

Daughter kept mixing up moss and lichen, so we went a-wandering to try and fix that, and to see if it all looked healthier than last time we looked. It certainly did. Yay for rain!

This picture really doesn't do the experience justice. Imagine standing on a hill just before dawn and seeing shooting stars, that fade as the sun rises and brightens the sky…

Look, it was worth going outside in the freezing cold to see feathery patterns on the windshield. I don't know if Daughter was really impressed, but I convinced her to draw it in her journal, and she is pleased with the journal entry, lol.

Remember that brightly coloured waterfall? This time it is blue. :)

Out of everything we saw on our trip up to Terrick Terrick National park and the Hattah Lakes, all she wanted to draw was the pelican we saw for all of two seconds as we drove past at 80km per hour. Personally, I was hoping she'd be impressed about the moss growing at Hattah Lakes. Who knew moss would even grow on sand? Maybe everybody, but I didn't!

Rose-Marie was one of those enthusiastic planners who began researching when she was pregnant with her first. She wanted to homeschool because it sounded like an affordable adventure, then she met her kids personally...

Her young daughter has Echolalia and some processing issues so isn't speaking fluently yet; but she is making good progress as they work and play in Central Victoria, Australia.
