184 Days

Exactly 6 months ago today we arrived in Australia. 184 days.
Since then we've had our first American visitor, and taken our first trip back home.
We've been to the Blue Mountains and Shoal Bay. We've taken bushwalks and cliffwalks, seen the zoo and museums and so many beautiful beaches. We've mastered the public transporation system and become used to driving on the other side of the road. We've found a church, a school, a babysitter, and some favorite restaurants.
We've made friends.
We've made a home.
It's strange to think that 25% of our projected time here has passed. I find myself wondering if we'll have time to see everything, do everything, experience everything Australia has to offer.
The Little Princess asked me last night, "After we move back to America, will we still visit Australia?". I hope so.
Today is a reminder to myself to enjoy our time here, because it's not going to last forever.

And that, at least, is good news for the Little Buddy who still asks me once a week, "Why are we in 'Stralia?"

don't worry, you'll know when he's adjusted cos he'll start saying "why are we in 'Straya?"

Now that I think about it, it does sound a bit like 'Straya!

It is amazing how life just continues to happen while we are trying to take it all in. You seem so comfortable in Sydney, I am sure the rest of time here will be amazing.
