I know the statistics, and I even preach it to my clients.... but I’ve never been one to take much time to do things or go places that I want to go. I’ve always had a lot of self imposed guilt about doing things without my family. Their needs have always come first... and that’s not a terrible thing, they are my #1 priority. BUT... when we take time to do something we LOVE, go somewhere we want to go, and see people WE want to see, it’s healing. The last 5 days have been that for me. I grew up in Oregon, left home at 17 years old and have never moved back.... and as much as I LOVE California, Oregon and all of its beauty will always be my healing place ❤️ Grateful to have been able to take this time and make memories with my mom and girls. Cant wait to get home to our boys.... but boy did we have a good time! *
Was hard to pick my fav pics from our trip but above are some highlights 😋 *

Do you actually know how hard it is to find the perfect home? 🏡 🌲 🐨 The Gum family are in need of a new home - it needs to be safe, secure ,comfortable and of course somewhere amongst the gum trees - where will it be?🌲🏡🐨 Join Tania McCartney and Christina Booth as they take the Gum Family on a rocky adventure around Australia, visiting many different and amazing geological formations in Australia.🌲🏡🐨 They visit the 12 apostles, wave rock, Kata Tjuta and the Glasshouse mountains - just to name a few. At each place the look for the perfect spot for a new home admiring the different ways the rocks have formed and changed over time. Children have a great sense of wonderment and awe and this book arouses just that.🐨🐨🐨 After we read this book we pulled out a map of Australia, books about each place visited and jumped on the internet to learn more.🌲🏡🐨 The book does contain a map, small pieces of information and real photographs but the need to learn more was inspired - so we did just that!🐨🏡🌲 Many students knew about Uluru and the Three Sisters but that was about it - so thank you to The Gum Family - these students all now know a lot more about the country they live in.🐨🏡🌲 I also enjoyed pulling out old photographs of my trip around Australia to many of these places and reminiscing about how I felt in each location.🐨🌲🏡 check out my blog for some teaching ideas.
