Burra and the end of the holidays.

We started this week in Burra.

We meet my good friend Di and her family there. It was a great holiday. We went to many of the mines and saw many historical sites. We came home on Thursday and have been relaxing since.

I can highly recommend the Paxton Square Cottages to stay if you are interested in going to Burra. We were very happy with the price and facilities. It can be difficult to find accommodation for more than 4 people generally but we fitted very comfortably into their cottages.

I took a few photos on Monday when we went to the Miners dugout but wasn't able to take more since I left my battery charger home in Port Augusta and the battery went flat. Here are some of the photos I took.

Here I am carrying Joseph in front of the Miners Dugout.
I carried Joseph all around Burra.

Tomorrow is the last day in our holidays.

4th term has only 9 weeks. My plan is to spend 8 weeks doing our usual curriculum and then in the last week make Christmas treats and gifts.

I am looking forward to this term. I will have Christopher home full time since he isn't going to kindy anymore and this should help our day be a bit less busy.

It's lovely to have the chance for the children to see and feel their history.
Have a great next term.
Nine weeks feels long to me. You must have more stamina! lol

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
