First day back.

Today we had a high temperature of 45. That is 117 Fahrenheit. It is going to continue for the rest of the week too.

Now it is 9.30 at night and temps are still in the high 30's. The sun has set so it isn't as oppressive as it was when it was up. The low tonight is 28. (82). It was a bit of a long day but we did get all the home school work finished.

We also got our printer back today so we will be starting our virtue unit tomorrow. We are starting with the virtue of consideration.

All this week I am planning on having salad rolls for tea. It is just too hot to cook anything.

Wow! You can just set the food outside and it will cook itself!

Dorothy McKeller soooooo hit the nail on the head with the first stanza of her well known poem about Australia. From drought this past decade to flooding rains this summer, yet still a sunburnt country in the heat wave we're currently experiencing!! Sydney is just as intense as Adelaide is sounding at the moment!

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.
