Life is not boring when you choose to stay at home. In fact it is rich and fulfilling and I get the pleasure of being able to be there for my family whenever they need me, even for the small things. In light of the refreshing revelation I have been given this week, I thought I would share some special moments with you.
Making soap again was so much fun and I forgot how good it makes the house smell.
Longreach celebrated it's 125th anniversary this week and we went along to the street parade. It was fantastic and they even threw lollies and new water bottles out for the kids.
The vintage cars and fire engines were a highlight.
Checking out the Cobb & Co display at the Station Stop, in Longreach.
Going rock collecting down near the river.
We saw a mother emu and her chicks while were there.
And of course Bear just loves going exploring.
The paddle steamer cruises the river every afternoon. We took this snap on one of our four-wheel driving adventures.
This bearded dragon was on the road and of course he needed saving. Of course Don and Jack jumped at the chance.
Sunsets like these are a favourite part of our afternoons.
The back yard is beginning to green up now. It was dry and dead when we moved in. We are starting on the gardens now also. This load of sand was delivered this afternoon for Sam's new sandpit-his birthday present (yes, it's a little early)
Ahh it's finished and all ready for playing tomorrow.
Yes, my days are full and I am content and happy with what each day brings. That is enough for me.
Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. (Phil 1:3)
