Thankfully this morning was very different to yesterday (for Eb and Amalia) simply because we took the toys away! They had so much fun together it was delightful to watch.
Here's my sleep head!....
I feel the best today that I have felt in more than a week (got sick before I went away) and was really looking forward to the day. The children learned to use a musical instrument first thing and then they were taught a dance that they had to do for the 'audience' (being the parents of course :). It was so much fun to see these little children learning a dance and they did such a good job of their presentation!
Then it was basically farewells and we were on the road again. We stopped in Bordertown for the night (same motel as on the way over) where we got the opportunity to really get a bit of R&R and then headed home to Melbourne where Cristina and Alice dropped us back at Jim, Kate and Eliza's before they headed off to catch the boat back to Tassie.
One of the highlights of this trip has been the travel with Cristina and Alice. They will always, always be very special to us for many reasons and I feel very blessed to have had such a wonderful travel companion for me...and for Eb. The girls did so well with so much travel and Cristina is just delightful to spend time with. I hope we get the opportunity to spend time like that together again some time in the future.
