we did it! we really did!
with a lot of help from our friends in Bellingen
we have shifted from house home
to our travelling home.
still intergrating, so will get back to that topic
my first morning waking by the sea
in sweet little Emerald Beach
aha! i immediately remembered why we include this travelling in our lives.
wandering over grassy hillocks scattered with kangaroos
the headlands tumbling down to rhythmic sea
shades of grey quilting the expanse of sky
hands held with children
hugs of celebration shared with all!
it is a huge task moving! oh lordy
we all know a version of the moving experience.
and now it’s good to be together
tiredness and tetchiness, fun and connection and finding how to adjust and what to do in this new space…
a certain toaster from the house which is with us for a few days
was used for toasting cardboard by Cedar (1 year) for our first breakfast on the road
conversations with Lily (7 years)
on a sofa on the hill about
where did the ocean come from? how did it get filled? (maybe it rained for years and all the dips on the earth got filled)
where does the sea get its energy? how does it all stop from sinking away into the sand? etc etc
our exploration of this topic reminded me how learning happens when away from school
we ended the day with antics on the sofa
so good to be silly and relaxed after weeks of intensity
and headed on to Byron Bay for a delicious seafood supper
(fourth meal provided for us this week! Thankyou)
and games of Uno
there where certainly moments of all flavours today
but the joy of a little family being together in nature is delightful!
and now I am reveling in the three different tunes my family make when sleeping
