And then life happens again.
| |

The unthinkable has happened and I’ve lost my father too.  My parents died just seventeen days apart.  Please forgive my absence awhile longer. This is my dad with JitterBug about seven years ago. And this is them again, just last month. We are here in America, sorting through all the things that need to be sorted through and dealing with all the things that need to be dealt with. I was lucky to be able to spend time with both … Read More

And then life happens.

You can make the grandest plans, but there’s always something, isn’t there?  Sometimes the things that get in the way are small.  Sometimes they are big.  Right now we are in the midst of one of the big things. We returned from our travels around Australia and soon found ourselves on a plane to visit my family in the USA.  I’ve had the grandest plans to get my new website, Simply Copywork, up and going.  To start blogging here again, … Read More

So I haven’t been blogging…

I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been working on something else.  Once that’s up and running (this month!) I’ve got to do some work on my homeschool blog and get that going again.  After that I plan to keep blogging here until I’ve covered all the wonderful places we’ve been.  We plan to be home and done with our trip in a few weeks. Blogging here will keep the memories alive while we adjust to being stationary again.  See you … Read More

Halloween in the Caravan
| |

Last year we were in America for Halloween.  The kids were beside themselves.  We went to some community event first, then to a friend’s neighbourhood for more trick or treating, complete with a visit from a headless horseman.  Since trick-or-treating isn’t really a thing here in Australia, I’d told the kids we’d dress up and do our own thing.  Then we found out that several of the other families staying in the caravan park were planning to trick-or-treat.  So then … Read More

A Quick Tour of Our Caravan
| |

So now that we’ve been on the road for many months, maybe it’s time for a tour of the inside of our caravan!  We have a Bailey Pegasus Ancona, it’s a European six-berth on-road van.  It’s lightweight, we could tow it with the car we already owned.  It was made in the UK to be sold in Australia which means it is made to Aussie standards.  So yes, we even have Aussie plugs inside!  Those who buy their European vans … Read More

Welcome to the Northern Territory!
| |

Since leaving the coast we’ve had many long drives with not much in between.  That means road trains are more common, and some of them are huge! The terrain has been unchanging for the most part.  Flat, very flat. On our last night in Queensland was spent in Cloncurry.  We had intended to go to the John Flynn museum but heard it was expensive, so we decided to save it for a Royal Flying Doctor Service museum later in our … Read More
