In my life this week…
It's been an amazing week!  On Monday my sister arrived from South Africa with her family to take up permanently living in Australia.  It's so good to reconnect with her and her precious family as they get to know our wide brown land!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
    • This week we are still without a vehicle as it's in for repairs we did however go to Science Works and explore their Carnival Science exhibition.
    • We also went to Point Cook Homestead with our homeschool support group to start the year.
    My favorite thing this week was…
    • Watching Sir N play with his cousins all day!

    • Tabitha Philen (Meet Penny) who has an amazing collection of Pins!  I have spent a few days exploring and still have not gone through all her boards.  Tabitha has over 12,000 pins.  Happy pinning :)
    • Melissa Taylor from Imagination Soup who has nearly 7,000 pins for you with a following of 1,301,436 and counting (yes you read that number correctly she has over a million people following her boards!)

    I’m grateful for…

    1. Favorite time of day to be on Pinterst??? Uh all day :) Usually at night though after the kids are in bed. As if I need more stuff to pin no I am going to hope over and check out your Pinterest suggestions.

    2. I have had to put Pinterest on hold in my lide as I try to find more balance b/w online and offline time. but, wow. Are you tempting me to click through all your links!!!!

      1. ooops sorry ;) I know what you mean though. I did stop pinning for a month as there was nothing new.

    3. Oh, how nice to have your family close by! Honestly, I've been kinda bored with Pinterest lately. I used to be very gung-ho about it, but I don't think I've been on in a couple of days and only for a few minutes. Waning! LOL

      1. I felt the same way a couple of months ago and stopped pinning. I need to find some new sources to follow ...

    4. Congratulations on your sister coming to Australia. :o)

      1. Thank you :) It's so much fun getting to know her and her family better.

    5. I'm not often on Pinterest. I have to remind myself to go there. I remember to pin things these days at least. So I'm getting better.

      1. I'm enjoying new content there at the moment. I was bored a while back.

    6. Anytime is my favorite time on Pinterest! I really do have to pace myself. Love Ann Voskamp and Lysa Terkeurst. I'm currently reading Unglued by Lysa. It's so good. Congratulations on your sister moving to Australia and being near you. I'm 3 hours from my sister but manage to visit pretty often. Have a wonderful week. God bless!

      1. thank you. Still have not got to read the books. Am impressed with Ann Voskamps geography curriculum. Have you seen that ?

    7. Lots of links to follow here. Thanks for sharing. I wanted to also let you know that I have awarded you the Liebster award. You can check it our here:

    8. Thank you Joelle :) You made me smile when I read your note.
